Positioned on a previously cleared site, with views towards Tasman Island and the Southern Ocean beyond, this project takes the farmhouse typology and transforms it into a hybrid courtyard house.

Visitors enter the house through a covered threshold, experiencing views into the tree-filled courtyard and the sea beyond. They then venture into the main living space, where the full panorama unfolds. Three gable roof extrusions define the functions within. Each gable has a specific relationship to the courtyard and specific views to the surroundings. The extruded form extends away from the building envelope, providing covered outdoor living spaces.
