Positioned south of Sydney, Australia, the Jamberoo Farm Residence was developed by Casey Brown Architecture for clients that wanted a nation residence that was large sufficient to have private guest accommodations and huge entertaining places. The farmhouse was designed to cohabitate with the, barns, sheds and cottages on the home – all centred about an ancient Morton bay fig tree. The residence is comprised of 3 sections that are all connected through a breezeway and all have huge glass walls that overlook the views to the north of the surrounding landscape that includes views to the coast in the distance.
Aside from the expanses of glass the home is also constructed with regional field stone, and Blackbutt wood. The wood is utilized as a traditional vertical board and batten siding left all-natural to slowly create a weathered and greyed patina. This natural tone to the wood is a great compliment to the grey and rust tones of the field stone walls. The major pavilion has a wrap about curved deck that permits the indoor space to open up via large timber sliding doors for extended outdoor living when the weather permits.
The inside of the primary pavilion is large and expansive. The Blackbutt wood continues on the floors, walls and ceilings and the showstopping scissor trusses are a key design and style function of the huge cathedral ceiling. The scissor trusses enable for a big and open strategy with minimal support structures generating a space that can accommodate huge groups of people. The living location has oversized couches with a collection of 3 large pendants punctuating the space. Next to the lounging location a free of charge floating fireplace adds visual drama and beyond that is the kitchen and bar region.
The kitchen is in a central compartment in the main creating with the island and bar on the side closest to the deck. It seems to be a Galley design and style with the vent for the stove hood piercing the central compartment and continuing up and by way of the roof. On closer inspection, only the cooking zone is visible from the bar, the prep and washing zones are positioned inside the Blackbutt wood cube, the cube is like a creating inside a constructing and is unobtrusive in look, blending seamlessly with the flooring and rafters.
Behind the kitchen is a hallway lit with spotlights that travels to the dining region on the other side.
The indoor dining location has a door that leads to an outside dining location at the back of the main building. This outdoor dining location is totally covered by the continued roofline and an massive outside fireplace keeps the space warm at evening. The two smaller sized zones of the property are both for sleeping. The first and middle one is the Master Suite total with a library on the view side that is accessible and divided by the breezeway that connects all 3 zones. The furthest section of the constructing at the far end of the breezeway is the guest accommodations comprises of two bedrooms and two bathroom
The library on the other side of the Master Suite tends to make use of the higher gabled ceiling with row upon row of books that are accessible via a library ladder that slides back and forth along the wall.
The gardens of the property are wrapped around the ancient Morton bay fig tree that is a major function of the house. The big gnarled branches attain out and more than the dense plantings even though stone curbings include the bulging perennials. Properly manicured lawns curve out and about the central planting an old piece of farm equipment peaks out as a memory of the way items utilised to be.
On the view side of the residence the large pastures of grass continue whilst field stone retaining walls envelope the footprint of the living spaces. The setting is one particular of pure bliss and it is difficult to picture any person becoming in a position to study a book in the library with no getting distracted by the stunning all-natural setting just outside the door.
