description: The Campsite Residence was originally completed in 2002, designed by Birrelli Architects. The brief was to re-clad the existing dwelling, convert an unused garage on the lower level into a utility room and library to support the existing home office, and provide a space on the upper level that offered an alternative to outdoor living, as extreme weather conditions on the exposed site seldom permitted outdoor activities.
