JR's hut is a true australian home on the range, built by a two person team

JR’s hut at kimo estate is an australian home on the range. typically for property value, location is everything. most people pay top dollar to be were the action is, but this project in rural new south wales has the exact opposite virtue. there is absolutely nothing around it, except for beautiful rolling hills. the house appears as if part of a dream. as a true little house on the prairie, the plot was historically used as a farm but is now used to host weddings and other special getaways. it was designed by anthony hunt design and luke stanley architects to reference the a traditional farm house construction with some modern touches. it’s both cozy and bright inside, where the scenic views do not go to waste.

as impressive as the project’s design, is its construction. the structure at kimo estate was built by a two person owner-builder team, who used ‘sustainable australian hardwoods’. therefore the materials needed to be easily sourced and handled on site. according to the designers, ‘the hut’s form was inspired by a classic ‘A’ frame tent, which simultaneously provides both refuge from, and connection with, the natural environment.’ it only measures 28 square meters, but its small size contributes to the comfort and minimalism inside. in realizing this hilltop abode, anthony hunt and luke stanley have created a beautiful addition to this picturesque landscape.

  • Great update to an A-frame. Given the OZ sun, you’d think you would need about a meter of insulation to keep that metal roof from turning the interior into an infrared oven. Good job.
