Special Location

Special Location

Hindmarsh Island is a sacred Aboriginal river island located in the lower Murray River near Adelaide in South Australia. Its unique location at the mouth where the river meets the sea means that the island has fresh water on the north coast and salt water in the south, as well as an impressive natural landscape. It is in this special place that the private home known as “The Boat Shed” is situated, bringing together a love for the water and a contemporary living concept.

The heart of the ensemble is the berth, which is surrounded by two building structures connected through a glass link. The house appears to float on the water, with access from both water and land via a jetty. The set-back, closed base section provides ample space for the sporty client's equipment and direct access to the sun deck and private pool. A glazed stairwell leads from the berth to the upper floor and connects the open-plan living area on one side of the house to the private sleeping quarters on the other.

Object description

Glass sliding doors inside the house and generous glazing towards the water ensure maximum transparency and offer a wide range of views. The private quarters, consisting of a dressing room, bedrooms and a separate master bathroom with framed views of the water, face the tranquil landscape, creating different room ambiences depending on the time of day.


Glazed on three sides, the living, cooking and dining area opens out fully towards the water. The slender profiles permit panoramic views. Fixed lights and opening sliding units provide different options for using the sheltered veranda at the front. Cosy evenings around the fire, cheerful gatherings at the dinner table or morning coffee at the kitchen counter – the outside space can be incorporated into any scenario. In keeping with the Australian climate, a lot of time is spent outdoors. The building structure's transparency acts as a stage for every season, which can be brought into the house depending on the mood. The large-scale Panorama Design sliding system creates a barrier-free transition between inside and outside. The clean, uniform language of design – with concealed, handle-free operation or elegant, continuous pull grips – perfectly meets the needs of the client for the highest levels of comfort and unrestricted views.
