The Brief called for two new enclosed and serviced Cabins which will be able to provide over night stay, ablutions and food preparation for up to twelve individuals for the Cape Nature Whale Trail site in Noetzie, which had to be configured to be located on the footprints of the existing cabins.

The articulation of solid enclosure, glazed and openable areas are dictated by both functional requirements and establishing convivial views and relationships with the surrounding natural environment.

The methodology of the typical assembly of the units has been informed by the idea of light weight, kit-of-parts, modular building components which will facilitate ease of handling, packaging, transport and erection on site.
