The character of this building draws from the rural sheds and homes common to the Australian country. Taking on the appearance of two separate pavilions connected by a lower roofed space, each of the three volumes takes on its own character and program, suggesting a dwelling created from a collection of older farm buildings.
In keeping with family living common to country homes, the kitchen and dining area occupy a single storey, uninterrupted space characterised by sandstone facing to its external walls. The second pavilion houses bedrooms, amenities and an upper story studio. The lower roofed space between connects to northerly outdoor living spaces and also acts as the formal entry vestibule. As the ‘focal’ communal area, indoor and outdoor can be combined into a single space
