contributed by davidb

Following the completion of Creek Vean House by Team 4 on the banks of Pill Creek in 1966, Marcus Brumwell commissioned this holiday home on the opposite bank. The architect was his daughter Su Rogers who, at the time, had divorced Richard Rogers and gone on to work with and marry John Miller of Colquhoun & Miller. The house has two floors linked by two spiral stairs. Sleeping is accommodated on the lower level where a series of sliding walls provides considerable flexibility; either enclosing or opening up space as necessary. A similar theme is employed upstairs where the kitchen, dining and main living spaces are to be found taking advantage of the views. Consequently there are no internal doors. Structurally the concrete floor slabs are supported on circular steel columns. Externally the walls are formed with GRP sandwich panels and patent glazing; the latter also being used for the roof. Insolation is moderated with internal awnings and glazed louvers assist with ventilation.
