Recognition

Set within an everchanging rural landscape with vast views, this beautiful 1940’s farmhouse underwent a sympathetic extension that now seamlessly merges with the original home.

The design intent was to deliver expansive and functional new spaces that would sensitively compliment the history and character of the existing home and surrounds. We worked closely with our clients to create the perfect plan that would meet their specific needs – it needed to be a practical farmhouse whilst feel warm and reflective of the family’s personalities.
Critical to the planning of the home was to create long sight lines to the landscape beyond, constantly connecting the owners to the shifting colours and weather of their environment.

 

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.
