Harmer House

Harmer House

Bpangerang Country




Breathing some new life into a heritage cottage located in the historic wine growing town of Rutherglen.

The brief for this project was to formally and sympathetically connect the existing cottage to an additional structure that was integrated on the property a few years ago.

Our vision will see the two spaces merge to create one larger home that is more open, functional and inviting, whilst keeping with the original feel of the cottage.

The interior will be modern and light, with classic finishes throughout and the establishment of an east-facing courtyard will provide the perfect vantage to enjoy the views beyond.


We acknowledge the Bpangerang, Wiradjuri, Jaitmatang, Yorta Yorta and Waveroo people on whose country we work and create. ​We also acknowledge the Traditional Custodians throughout Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander lands where our projects are placed. We recognise their ongoing connection to Country, land and waters that were never ceded and pay our respects to Elders, past, present and emerging. Our Reconciliation Action Plan was developed with Reconciliation Australia and guides us on our reconciliation journey and that of our clients, collaborators and community.
