Again and again on a classic design, get more inspired with this amazing natural wood dwellings that was built in 1968 by Gunn Dyring Architecture and Urban Design in Nelson Inlet, NSW. This residences called Baronda House was designed based on a 2700 orthogonal matrix using natural tree trunks. Where the vertical and horizontal grid of the matrix defines the spaces, the floors of which radiate from the central staircase, each floor raised a half level above the previous and in a location 90 degree different from the one below. The Baronda residences have a minimal service, more environmentally friendly because there being no public utilities such as gas, water, electricity or sawerage. The timber theme generated by the structure is continued with infill timber boarding. The floors are created with EX-50×100 mm tongue and grooved planks spanning 1350 mm, while these structure was form the ceilings for those rooms having a full height below. The ceilings designed directly under the roof consist of sisal lining over 150mm square wire mesh.
