A simple cabin located between the fields and the scrub, with views out to the Southern Ocean. Referencing the form of the galvanised iron shearing sheds seen through the area, this weekender offers a robust and comfortable place for the owners to stay while relaxing and tending to their property. The house is fully self sufficient and entirely ‘off the grid’, with banks of solar panels located on a nearby shed. The metal exterior of the house contrasts with the warm interior, with timber lining the walls and ceilings. Inside there is a play of volume and height, with a mezzanine level looking over the living areas, and providing a picture window with a view out to the sea across the paddocks. Through the design process a number of different building forms and interior configurations were explored in detail.
