Traditional agrarian proportions with a contemporary interpretation of the ‘barn style’ dwelling house and an option for vernacular timber cladding encompasses this secluded buildings facade to help soften its impact on the surrounding landscape and potentially create a subtle expression of ‘dark-itecture‘ at this beautiful rural setting.

The layout was designed with a particular emphasis on sunlight towards south and western sunset aspects, to penetrate the open-plan kitchen – dining – family rooms with light and warmth, while orientated to maximise the available views onsite and create a sequestered external link to the outside space which can be supervised from the kitchen, and accessed thru full height gliding doors onto a secluded BBQ area, and having a separate bedroom wing placed at right angles to help shield from the prevailing winds.
