Forrest Bathing is a complete renovation/ extension of a heritage property situated in the City of Port Phillip.
The idea of Forrest Bathing is derived from the long held practice in Japan of taking time to unwind and connect with nature. “shinrin-yoku” literally meaning “forest” and “bath”.
“Forest Bathing” introduced into this inner city context through the combined use of vertical green screens and negotiating sunlight and shadow with the neighbouring properties.
Internally, materiality/finishes shift accordingly to reflect the light timber, greys, greens & pinks of Australian native forests. The lightness of the natural colours open up the kitchen, dining & living areas and connects to the plunge pool and outdoor experience.
Construction start early 2019. Please see our Instagram feed for latests.
