Krakani Lumi by Taylor and Hinds Architects

Tasmanian practice Taylor and Hinds Architects have designed a standing camp called krakani lumi, which means resting place. Located within the wukalina/Mt William National Park, the complex was created for a cultural walk guided and operated by the Aboriginal Land Council of Tasmania.

The project is strongly informed by the siting, materials and traditional half-domed forms of ancient Tasmanian Aboriginal shelter. These traditional interiors are held by a robustly detailed charred timber clad exterior. When not in use, the exterior conceals and protects the experience of the rich timber interior and becomes a shadow against the coastal banksia that surrounds the site.
