rural san remo house designed by MGAO in southern victoria, australia




a simple rural structure, the ‘san remo’ house by MGAO echoes numerous corrugated iron sheds, hay stores, and cattle stables in a small town setting on the edge of western port in southern victoria, australia. situated at the top of a grassland crest, the home is split into three sections: a bedroom, a public area with kitchen and dining room, and open air verandah that frames views toward churchill island.
