Mortals dwell in that they receive the sky as sky. They leave to the sun and the moon their journey, to the stars their courses, to the seasons their blessing and their inclemency.
— Martin Heidegger, “Building, Thinking, Dwelling,” 1951

Carrickalinga Shed, designed by Architects Ink with landscape architecture by Landskap, is located in the coastal area of Karrakardlangga on the traditional lands of the Kaurna peoples in South Australia. The home’s use of aperture, enclosure, boundary, edge, and room arrangement guides its occupants’ awareness(es) towards an internal and external landscape. In doing so, the dwelling invites a deeper way of being present with, and connecting to, the surrounding environment beyond normative architectural gestures that privilege “the view.”
