A wonderful cabin of wood and corrugated sheet made with a modern design but with recovered materials . The hut has been designed by John Wardle Architects, in the same place where the shed used to shear the sheep this beautiful hut now stands. It is located within a cattle farm and is now used as a temporary residence by the owners, their family and staff hired to shear the sheep when it is the season.
The cabin It presents an elongated structure taking advantage of the plain of the water's edge. On the front is wider than the back. The interior has been designed to make the most of the available space. Part of the exterior of the cabin is covered with corrugated metal sheet that gives an industrial aspect very consistent with its location, in a huge livestock production farm where there are other buildings and metal tanks.
The interior has been completely made of wood, specifically pine macrocarpa, which is actually a cypress ( Cupressus macrocarpa), or Monterey cypress, which is used to protect the fields from the wind.
In the image above a large shelf made of crude steel as the shelf of the fireplace and below the large windows that open to appreciate the beauty of the place in moments of rest. They also allow the breeze to cool the cabin in the hot months of work.
The walls of the rooms have been covered with wooden slats recovered from old boxes of apples that are no longer used since the sixties.
The porch, the mosquito net and a detail of the door handle made with the handle of an ax. The back wall of the cabin has mobile panels to adjust the flow of air flow. An original cabin that has solutions adapted to its environment very clever.
