What Was Originally An Old Pump House Is Now A Gorgeous Lakeside Retreat!

Categories: Homes / Dwellings

A semi-permanent structure, the Pump House sits softly on its site adjacent to a large dam and on the threshold between the open paddocks and the bush land surrounds. 

 

Large expanses of glazing along with a North/South orientation allow the sunlight and the wide-open green spaces to penetrate into, and seemingly pass through, the internal volume giving the condensed areas a sense of spaciousness.

  

The formal gesture of the black box external shell creates a robust metal 'cocoon' within the landscape that is directly contrasted by the warmth of the timber lined internal spaces.
