Despite a hostile environment, this translucent shed in Australia allows one couple to keep a home, garden, and cooking school under one roof. Ronnen Goren and Trace Streeter bought 20 acres in central Victoria with the aim of creating a rural enclave where they could farm, garden, and host visitors. “From the outset it was clear: Goren and Streeter did not want a scheme for themselves; they needed a scheme that would invite, in a participatory way, the involvement of others,” says architect Timothy Hill of @partnershill However, with extreme climates, threats from wildlife, and less-than-hospitable growing conditions, the land was unfavorable for the couple’s goals. Hill’s solution was to collect the diverse site functions under a single roof. As a result, being in @dlonghouse is “mellow and calming whatever the weather. The experience of the whole is far greater than the sum of its parts,” says the firm. Take the complete tour when you try Dwell+ in the link in bio.
