The upcoming Our Houses event in Melbourne will see architect and client discuss a unique house described as “a tree change project.”
Daylesford Longhouse, designed by Hobart and Brisbane-based practice Partners Hill, combines a working farm, cooking school, reception venue and home within a single 110-metre-long shed on a sheep grazed property near Daylesford, Victoria.
At the Our Houses event at the Brickworks Design Studio on 10 July Timothy Hill, the founder of Partners Hill will discuss the project alongside Ronnen Goren, a founding partner of Studio Ongarato.
Over the past decade, Ronnen and his partner Trace have worked closely with Partners Hall to realize a scheme that embodies their passion for hospitality, food and farming.
The result is a spectacular project incorporating prosaic building materials and local construction practices, which have been exploited to provide a maximum possible interior volume and roof area.
The internalized productive landscape is afforded protection from environmental conditions, and rainfall is harvested and stored to ensure a regular supply to the new microclimate.
Billed as “a conversation between architects and their clients,” Our Houses is a nationwide program that offers architecture enthusiasts the chance to go behind the scenes to see how architects collaborate with their clients. Architects attending can earn two formal CPD points.
