Taylor and Hinds builds a standing camp in the Tasmanian landscape

Taylor and Hinds designs a series of pavilions cladded with charred wood in the wild landscape of Tasmania.

Taylor and Hinds Architects, Krakani Lumi, Tasmania, Australia, 2017

The standing camp Krakani Lumi designed by Taylor and Hinds is located on the Northern edge of the Bay of Fires, North-east Tasmania. The complex was commissioned by the Aboriginal Land Council to host the tourists visiting the landscapes of Mount William National Park. 

The complex consists of a main building which contains all the common services, surrounded by six smaller pavilions distributed on the dunes and immersed in the rich autochthonous vegetation. The buildings are cladded with charred Tasmanian timber  – which is resistant to the corrosion of the sea air ­– that enables the complex to camouflage in the landscape. The bark-cladded excavated interiors of the buildings is revealed when the panels of the facades are open towards the landscape. This form and materiality are reminiscing of the traditional structures of the aboriginal population.
