VIRTUAL TOUR: SYMMONS PLAINS
CANCELLED - VIRTUAL TOUR
Architect: Cumulus Studio
Understanding the significant Tasmanian value of the Symmons Plains homestead, the clients approached the project with a clear vision: to restore the aging original buildings, then introduce functional, contemporary elements that would remain sensitive to the heritage architecture. As is typical of early Georgian homes, the original homestead was quite stripped back, austere and utilitarian in appearance. The new lightweight, highly glazed insertions reflect this simplicity in form and proportion, while their transparency and reduced height allow the original heritage buildings to take prominence in the design. The new intervention acts as a long extruded tube, connecting both outbuildings and the rear wing of the homestead into one single consolidated structure. This connection activates the entire cluster of buildings, transforming forgotten spaces into active, social additions to the family home.
