Willunga Barn

A modern country/beach-house.

An awkardly sized block, poor soil quality, and a demanding program forced the footprint into the rear corner, putting great constaints on the envelope as a whole. In the end, a traditionally gabled structure – reminiscent of the many barns dotted across the nearby countryside – seemed the most economical compromise between form and function. Adjustable awnings improve the passive solar performance of the house.
