HIGHCOUNTRY HOUSE

LOCATION | Highcountry, NSW

PROJECT | Weekend Residence

STATUS | Concept​

Located off the grid in the forest in south-eastern New South Wales, this compact holiday home is conceived as a reinterpretation of the humble corrugated iron shed typically to many rural Australian properties.

A simple structural solution paired with combined with locally sourced materials allows for simplified construction in this remote location. Internally, extensive use of timber and stone harvested from the site provide a sense of warmth and a connection of place.

This modest project sits comfortably within the landscape and reinforces the experience of the impressive natural setting.
