The client’s ambition for this project was to create the best reef house in the world. With this goal, and inspired by the location, we were excited to design a truly bespoke house with an architectural sensitivity that reflected its pristine environment.
Dyiigurra (Lizard Island) lies in the Great Barrier Reef, 240 kilometres north of Cairns. It is the traditional country of the Dingaal people and is regarded as a sacred space. Noting its large population of monitor lizards, it was named Lizard Island by Captain James Cook when he passed it in 1770.
