Buck Farm House
Donnybrook Qld, 2011
Alterations and additions to the family farm; extending the living areas with a rammed earth wall section, clarifying the existing house plan, adding a separate pavilion that houses the main bedroom suite, a breezeway to the rear and utility room. the project removed asbestos from the existing building re-roofed the older structure with a fly roof over the existing frame. The rear pavilion is clad in corrugated colorbond with an internal rammed earth wall ( trombe wall) to add thermal mass and texture to this wing. the exterior of the pavilion is moderated with external venetian blinds.
