Our farm house is located on the outskirts of country Casino, west of Lismore and approximately 2.5 hours from its closest city, Brisbane. The clients, a wonderful elderly couple in their 70’s, were after a peaceful home on one level that embraces view and combines with the practicalities one would expect in classic farm homesteads.
Considering the simplicity of their brief and tightness of the budget, we looked to break the plan down into a series of ordered spaces where each pavilion depicts its use. Utility – Public – Private.
One therefore experiences the plan as journey. This allows for a natural progression of arrival – greet – engage – retreat. We call this, ‘Divided Spatial Ergonomics’.
Their budget, $350k.
