This T shaped-plan takes full advantage of its beautiful rural setting. The long northern wing is articulated with sliding perforated screens, which provide solar protection and also create a softened interior atmosphere with filtered views and dappled light. The archetypal shed architecture is elevated to express a carefully considered composition unencumbered by fussy planting, revelling in its location in a paddock.
The deep overhangs and sheltered eastern porch protect a series of well-proportioned spaces, and the timber palette from the exterior continues inside with a soft grey contrast on the walls.
The oversized chimney projects as a small delicate tower, enhancing the linearity of the north wing and further emphasises the agricultural references.
