Project summary

The Talgai Ram Stud Shed was an underutilised structure on a property that gets high use. Talgai is a fully operational farm, where they also host gatherings and events.

Rather than building an entirely new structure for their use, the client wanted to reengage with the heritage structure already onsite. This is a more sustainable approach with the revitalisation of a largely unused structure on the property.

The Talgai Homestead and Ram Stud Shed, being an important heritage site, the project was required to adhere to strict guidelines within the Queensland State heritage register.

KIRK acknowledged that new fit out materials and fittings should be ‘of our time’ and of good quality. The onsite team had to be cautious and sensitive towards original and early fabric of the building.
