Sleepout At Te Arai

The design for this family sleep out was based on the building being like a permanent tent. A variety of exterior verandah spaces offer degrees of shelter, while the paved terrace provides for al fresco dining.

With all the awnings up and doors slid open the sleep out space extends into the surrounding site.

The building closes right up when vacant providing secure storage in the surrounding verandah spaces.

Battened screens hinge up to form awnings supported on steel posts.

The plywood lined sleep out offers a warm interior space which spills out to the connecting verandah. With the battened screens down the verandah becomes an extension of the sheltered interior space.

Dappled light is filtered through the battened screen awnings providing shade from the afternoon sun on the verandah.

The paved terrace provides ample room for al fresco dining.

View from the loungers across the terrace to the lush planted hill beyond. A portable brazier is set ready for people to gather around the evening fire.
