Amity Eco-Shack

Architecture

N Stradbroke Island, Australia

Amity Eco-Shacks are part of the Amity Campsite located in the northwest tip of North Stradbroke Island, Queensland, Australia. The camping site is owned by the aboriginal Quandamooka people who are the traditional owners of the island which is a one-hour ferry ride east from the mainland.

HM Design was the Landscape Architect and a member of the Architect’s team led by Australian eco-Architect – Paul Pholeros. These prototype shacks were designed to incorporate the culture of the Quandamooka People (North Stradbroke Island’s traditional owners) and their connection to country. Design inspiration also came from the style of the traditional Australian tent and the quintessential beach shacks of North Stradbroke Island. The Overall Camping Site master plan included accommodations (eco-shacks, camper trailer and caravan sites, cabins, powered and unpowered tents), cooking stations, restrooms, play areas, beach boardwalks etc. The Eco-Glamping Shacks were part of the First-phase and opened to the public in August 2014.
