Glamping, Aussie Style

Permanent Camping 2 by Casey Brown Architecture

Campers and glampers might disagree on what is luxury and what is essential, but they share a common desire to be as close to nature as possible. The designers at Casey Brown Architecture have created a self-contained tiny house which does this beautifully.

Located in Berry, Australia, Permanent Camping 2 takes the form of two copper-skinned towers which look as if a couple of Daleks had landed on the rolling hills. The footprint of the main structure, at 3 m by 3 m, is just large enough for two people to cohabit. This contains the main living area (with facilities for cooking and storage) on the ground floor and a sleeping loft on the mezzanine. The smaller tower houses the bathroom with a composting toilet, topped by a rain water tank.

The real magic happens when the external copper panels of the main tower are lifted up (using manual winches), exposing the living space to the extensive deck and the idyllic views beyond whilst acting as awnings to provide shade at the same time. This thoughtfully designed retreat not only makes a glittering sculptural presence on the landscape, but also offers its occupants the greatest luxury of all: a living space which makes you feel at one with nature.
