The centre of the cabin is open space connecting the two outdoor decks.

"Translucent glass in the sliding doors references the light qualities of Japanese rice paper screens, creating a sense of enclosure and privacy at night," said Maguire + Devin.

Bruny Island Cabin is flanked by two decks, one to the east and one to the west.

Maguire + Devin created Bruny Island Cabin for a client who wanted an off-grid retreat on 99 acres of land she owns on the Tasmanian island.

Bruny Island Cabin is a wood-lined off-grid holiday home in Tasmania designed by architecture studio Maguire + Devin featuring only built-in furniture.
