Nestled amongst the trees in the Victorian High Country on a 94-year-old walnut farm, the project is an Architecturally designed renovation on a 100-year-old existing Tobacco Kiln. Using the existing shack’s timber frame while repairing its awkward join to the kiln, a new separation brings in northern light by cladding the new joining roof in a translucent skin. This sustainable tiny space features recycled timber, solar panels, a thermodynamic hot water system, roof and wall insulation, and ground-level gutters to reduce fire risk.
Architect: Kate Fitzgerald, Whispering Smith Architects.
