This country house in Currandooley uses two Australian vernacular elements, an L-shaped plan and corrugated iron roof. By prolonging the battered walls to enclose courtyards and extending the hips toward a single roof apex a new sense of space has been given to traditional materials and local design convention.

Jury report








Set on a hill, the house commands beautiful views, and it is protected from winds from the surrounding  rich eucalyptus vegetation. 
The house is L-shaped with the walls extending to enclose a square area of courtyard, to which all rooms but the kitchen have an alternative view.
