The Juliet Tower - Mountain River, Tasmania
The juliet tower narrates the difficult and familiar characteristics of family life, spirituality and symbolism. A piano studio, sleepout & library are negotiated within the small 22sqm internal footprint, whilst the external fabric provides and elevated concourse & enhanced observation of the picturesque huon valley, hartz mountain ranges and sleeping beauty within mountain river. The building deliberately disrupts the views from the original homestead & creates a sense of privacy for guests. All masterfully hand crafted by a local artisinal carpenter, every detail was negotiated & approached with care and true tasmanian craftmanship.
