Dragonfly in Broken head, NSW, Australia by Built-Environment Practice

Tuesday, May 7th, 2013

Article source: Built-Environment Practice

The Dragonfly is designed to deliver a maximum of experience within limited build-able constraints around an existing house and sloping site. The project mediates between expansive views of the Pacific Ocean at Lennox Head, NSW and intimate snapshots of the rugged hillside upon which the Dragonfly is situated.
