I’ve been meaning to post about this fantastic project since I laid eyes on it - when I spotted Cabin 2 on the 2014 Australian Interior Design Awards shortlist for Residential Design. If you’ve been following Copperline for a while you’ll already be aware of how much I admire Australian architecture and interiors, and the AIDA list is like a goldmine of great design.
Situated at Blairgowrie in Victoria, Cabin 2 is the work of Maddison Architects, who added a 105 sq/m extension to an existing 1960s log cabin set on a sloping site. This self-contained retreat includes living spaces and storage, with a bedroom and en-suite upstairs.
"Table with a built-in ice bucket. The concept behind The Dine table is to create a relaxed and friendly environment for people to hang out. Its neutral presence gives it the capacity to adapt itself to any kind of situation. It can be used anywhere, from someone’s home, to a restaurant, a hotel or other types of commercial establishments, as long as the idea is to provide a cool and relaxed moment. The built-in ice bucket at the center makes it accessible to everyone, keeping the beverages cool the whole time. The ice bucket can be removed or the cork at its end can be pulled out to drain it, making it easier to reuse the water to other purposes."
