This house is absolutely designed as a guesthouse with beds with the number one aim of creating the maximum out of the area’s get admission to to ocean view panoramas to the south and exquisite pastoral vistas to the north.
This modest two mattress guest house explores the vernacular farm shed, with a plan that’s charmingly easy but extraordinarily considered in its detail. positioned on a quintessentially NSW South Coast dairy farm. The design explores the vernacular metal portal frame typology in a extraordinarily refined and designated way. The easy rectilinear ground-plan aligned with the lengthy edges going through North/South, sets up a strong number one axis as those also make first-class use of the ocean and rural perspectives. the opposite strong axis is that of the East/West which aligns with the inner stream direction and the other fundamental view to the signature Illawarra escarpment in the west. The point of intersection among those axis forms a runway of timber decks on both aspect of the building. on the point of access, a framed view through the building to the ocean at the south facet is shaped.
