North Adelaide Barn
North Adelaide, 2015
150 years of gentle indifference saw the structure of this 19th Century state heritage barn begin to give way. Repairing and stabilising was a large task for it to remain just a ‘shed’ with requirements for new steel supports and hydraulic rams to straighten walls.
A functional brief was expanded with the client’s input to create a space that would become a part of their everyday lives, and has seen a stunning room created that acts a retreat, family room, entertaining space… or just somewhere to absorb the history and story embedded in the stone walls.
