The Rawhiti Sleep-Out consists of two ensuited bedrooms, a bunkroom, and a living area/bedroom with kitchen facilities.
The feature of the build is the construction of the in-situ concrete walls and ceiling and the green roof built into the hillside. Extensive excavation was required and once the concrete walls and roof had been constructed and waterproofed the excavation was backfilled. Due to the steepness of the hillside the backfill required craning in. The in-situ concrete finish is off the form rough sawn timber in either horizontal or vertical layout. There are two curved light wells at either end of the corridor that links the bedrooms with a central skylight adding additional natural light. The concrete ceiling is sloped with a curved soffit at the front and a curved bulkhead to the skylight. The floor is polished concrete and internal walls are lined with vertical stained cedar boards or tiles in the bathrooms and toilet. Exterior joinery is stained sliding timber joinery leading out to individual room decks. Louvered cedar screens provide protection/privacy over the decks.
