Barwon House
/ (1 of 1)

A second home for a young family on the southern coast of Victoria that seeks to create some peace amongst the chaos.

The house is formed around one long continuous space containing the shared parts of the house: the kitchen, dining and living areas. This forms a buffer zone between the more private parts of the house: the parents wing upstairs, and the kids' bedrooms and play room below.

This clever spatial planning creates room to relax for the parents, and room for the kids to do-what-they-do, all within a very compact and sustainable footprint.
