Verandah House

Completed 2017

This new home is built on part of the clients’ family farm. It is designed to be comfortable for 2 people but easily expand to accommodate the influx of extended family. It is a relaxed, casual series of covered and open spaces designed to maximise the views and offer ultimate flexibility.

The Clients had been using a converted shipping container and tent on site. The garage and accessory studio space are off-set from the main building form and clad in the same colour iron as the container as a point of reference.

The large areas of glazing providing visual connection to the landscape and are protected by large floating eave over decks.
