Platypus Bend

Pomona / 2015

The genesis for the design was the need to elevate the building above a flood prone site on the banks of the beginning of Six Mile Creek.
Lined in zincalume, this lightweight steel building embraces sound sustainable principles.

Running costs are reduced by solar electrical power, solar hot water heating, rainwater harvesting and the use of an on-site waste water treatment system.

Most of the structural componentry is off the shelf steel used in regular shed assembly
