The desert landscape is awesome. Here is an opportunity to explore design driven by this landscape. This half-day field trip takes you to visit Desert House, a project completed by Dunn & Hillam Architects. The house is built in the shade of its own fly-roof, and demonstrates an innovative and appropriate response to living in this environment. The house is both a frame for and a refuge from the surrounding landscape.

The design aims to make the best of living in this place. The clients love the desert, they love the vast views, they love the warmth. And when the weather turns foul they wanted to deal with that in the smartest way possible, actively seeking to demonstrate an innovative approach to housing not only in the desert but throughout the world.

You are invited to an afternoon tea in the courtyard of our Desert House on Wednesday 3rd May from 2pm - 4pm. Groups of up to 20 will complete a tour of the house to understand the design philosophy, the environmental systems and how the house responds directly to its landscape and inhabitants. Tea and cake will be served in the courtyard where we hope to begin informal discussions around how we approach our practice, our connection to the environment and, of course, why we are a B Corp.

Dunn & Hillam Architects are a proud and active B Corp. We design appropriate buildings that engage with their site and location. We work across all scales of building with a mix of private, commercial and government clients. Our projects are in cities, regional, rural and remote areas.
