Located in the rural countryside this traditional vs contemporary dwelling demands attention along its long laneway.
This dwelling is a split personality of architectural language with a contemporary twist. Two forms were created at right angles to each other signifying the traditional farm house and the arrangement of a farm barn. The main traditional block is the sleeping quarters of the dwelling. This is finished in render with pleasing sash window proportions crowned by a slate roof. The modern secondary block is finished in localised stone to the east of the site and encloses the open plan living, kitchen and dining space over a barrel roof covered in a red tin typical of a farm shed but modern in design. The large glazed double height window pours southern light into this deep space justified further by the views out towards the rural scenery.
The materials used are common in both locality and characteristics of farm buildings.
