NEW HOME, OOZING WITH SOUL

Designed by Frank Macchia from his newly formed Shackpalace Design Studio to challenge, nurture and inspire, this home offers a very unique get away experience. From the large raw timber gates, the external connecting deck and the open air shower with mountain views, this private sanctuary encourages calm, healthy, connected living.

With 2 separate self contained levels this home is perfect for 2 couples or a family with 2 teenage or adult children.

The space
Perched high on Noosa Hill, the home has been created to allow guests to experience living in smaller yet inspiring spaces. We aim to provide a unique holiday experience, challenging conventional living and inspiring a sustainable & healthy lifestyle with a focus on nurturing the mind, body and spirit. Each item in this ‘pull apart’ home has been carefully considered and where possible designed by ourselves or sourced from like-minded makers. The feel is private and spacious, with a dark bedroom designed specifically for healthy, deep sleep, and a shower/dressing area with stunning views of the Noosa surrounds. Instead of television and computers, enjoy beautiful sunsets on the deck, immerse yourself in a good book, or create a delicious meal from fresh local produce.

Enjoy a unique retreat style holiday experiencing mindful rituals that may change the way you think about how we live in today’s busy world. The well considered layout of the home aims to encourage slow living where daily tasks are now carried out with awareness providing a more fulfilling and enjoyable experience.
Our beautiful Noosa cabin has been created with a philosophy of conscious design using environmentally friendly & sustainable building materials and hand selected, artisan products throughout.

Designer Statement

"In line with the idea of encouraging slow living, by immersing ourselves into daily rituals, I have split the home into 3 separate areas…. 1. Living/Kitchen/Eating, 2. Sleeping and 3. Bathing/Dressing. These rooms are connected by an external deck and generally under cover with enough adjacent open to sky, to enhance the sense of movement from in to out. In addition to this, I have designed steps before each room/pavilion, to act as a continual reminder that you are about to enter a different zone, for a different activity. I am aiming to minimise the number of mindless moments that occur as we move from room to room and function to function in our homes every day. The added sense of stepping into a private and secure outside zone touches a raw and adventurous part of our soul – that similar feeling we get when camping.
Shackpalace also includes two further design concepts which question the way we currently build our homes.
Firstly, it deletes the superfluous space and pares back a home to the bare minimum in size and ‘stuff’. The idea is that we feel more nurtured, relaxed and connected in spaces that hit the sweet spot between too big and cold, and too small and cluttered.
Secondly, Shackpalace adopts the philosophy of hand built perfection in the imperfection. While most homes are built from materials synthetically processed from factories, Shackpalace takes us back to using natural materials in a way that accentuates the imperfections. My feeling is that humans relate to this imperfection much better than perfectly pressed products from a factory conveyor belt, because we too are imperfect and not entirely symmetrical.
I hope this home inspires and lifts your spirit as it does to me each moment I have spent designing and staying in it.
