Architect: Unknown (1800s) Maria Gigney (Studio Ilk Architecture & Interiors) (2010)

Come and marvel at this multi award-winning small project.

Working with a very limited budget, The Barn is a stunning example of adaptive reuse, using every piece of original timber and stone removed from the original structure, and ‘reinventing’ the space and its elements into a boutique accommodation project. An open, creative hand from the client was the catalyst for the creation of this work.

The excellence of the work was acknowledged with an Australian Institute of Architects National Award for Small Project Architecture in 2010.

Open: Saturday 11 November 2023, 1 pm – 4 pm
