Traditional French Farmhouse

Traditional French Farmhouse  20 February 2010

Over the past few month we have been finalising the design for a French style Farmhouse. Composition, materiality and detail is drawn from the memory of my travels through Europe and extensive research into the construction of traditional ‘mas’.  The project has been re-interpreted and re-synthesised into a form that relates to our New Zealand lifestyle, environment, build-ability and building standards. Multiple roof forms, colours and detail combine to create the ad-hoc feel and liveliness of a Provencal village in summer.
