Huon Barn House, Australia
Studio Ilk Architecture + Interiors’ brief for Huon Barn House was to create a robust home for a growing family using simple forms and rustic materials while allowing for the client, a carpenter/joiner to take ownership of much of the fabrication himself.
The simple detailing and forms expand upon the unpretentious farmhouse vernacular and adapt the arrangement to create a series of flexible spaces for living. The application of this uncomplicated construction typology was two-fold; driven initially to engage with the context in which it sits but also facilitating a pragmatic cost-effective solution with the client’s role in mind.
Open, spacious and lineally uncluttered, this low cost, energy efficient home maximises visual connection with the landscape, yet provides ample protection from the elements.
The building runs east – west, to maximize passive solar performance, and combat the challenges surrounding a site where the predominant views are to the south.
As the surrounding landscaping, decks and planting progress over the coming years, the home will comfortably settle into its surroundings.
