Project summary

Coulson Creek Shed was envisioned as a rural retreat where the convergence of nature and communal spaces would harmonize seamlessly.

Sited away from the property entry, the home intentionally turns it back to the road to provide privacy to the internal and external living spaces.

Deliberate orientation of the shed towards the north captures the panoramic spectacle of Mount Greville and Coulson Creek strategically framed by carefully placed windows in the main bedroom and living room.

An expressed portal structural with corrugated zincalume cladding references the shed typology common in the area while allowing for a more refined interior.

The idea of a rural shed, however, serves as a mere facade, concealing a more cultivated interior.

The design allows us to connect to the landscape and nature and enables us to feel relaxed and at peace. Our stress disappears in this house in this setting. The visual connections with the landscape from all the spaces in our home help gives us that peace.

Functionally, the house is very open but it is clever with allowing privacy for the us at the same time.

We enjoy being able to have seamless connections between the inside and the outside, which allows for everyone to interact while entertaining, cooking or sitting around the fireplace.
