Balnarring Retreat is a minimal residence set on the bank of a pond in Victoria, Australia. Designed by Branch Studio Architects in 2016, the house offers its inhabitants a quiet living space away from their urban home.
Purposefully lo-fi, The Retreat embraces a low-tech aesthetic towards the operation of the building itself, fully embodying the idea of retreat and slowing down. Celebrating craftsmanship and integrity of materiality instead of technology, every wall of the building have been designed to contain components that manually fold, open and close to manipulate the space and transform the program of the building
