Architect: Glenn Murcutt
Location: Kempsey, NSW, Australia
Glenn Murcutt designed the Marie Short House for a client, but later bought it for himself and expanded on the original plan.
As in all Glenn Murcutt designs, the Marie Short House is constructed of simple, readily available materials. Timber from a nearby sawmill form the framing and the walls. Adjustable steel louvers control the flow of air through the living space.
