The brief for the project was to replace the existing industrial buildings with good-sized family homes within this serene countryside setting. Reintroducing a traditional farm settlement arrangement of buildings on site with a central courtyard resurrects the historical character of the site. A mix of buildings varying in scale and footprint results in a rural richness of ondulating rooflines. With facades defined by steep roofs and primarily clad in timber, the proposed buildings represent a comtemporary interpretation of the rural and agricultural character of the region.
