Permanent Camping House by Casey Brown Architects
It is not often an architecture firm is called in to design a 3 meter x 3 meter structure, but we are sure glad they were. Casey Brown Architects designed this permanent camping house on a sheep farm in central western NSW in Australia. The small home is designed to house 1 or 2 people for short stays as either a retreat, or as a bunk while work is done in the area. The home is protected from the elements by a corrugated steel shell, which opens up with a simple pulley and rope system. The covers then provide shade for the visitors.
The permanent camping house is just as comfortable in winter, when you can light up the wood furnace to keep the interior warm and cozy. The home has a large water storage tank on one side to make sure there is always plenty of fresh water in the midst of the ranch.
