The rectilinear planform of the building is based on agricultural construction and considers the integration of object and landscape. This idea is drawn initially from Victorian-era farm structures of the region where buildings were developed largely on pragmatic terms.
The building structure is typical of portal frame construction, incorporating 5no. 4m modules. The rectilinear plan at the main level is punctured by a service core, forming an axial nature within the plan. This core incorporates a wet entry at the south side. Inside, it contains building services including: bathroom, kitchen, wc, laundry, hws, and wood-fired boiler. The main living room, centrally located on the plan incorporates large sliders to the north and south, providing a protected outdoor alternative in most wind conditions. Large oversized blackbutt cladding of the building’s gable ends incorporate framed views of the exterior and organizes the building program with central living/services core and sleeping zones cradled in timber at each end. via
