Small Space Living: A Shearers Cottage in Australia

Julie Carlson October 25, 2012

Spotted on Dezeen: a sheep shearer's cottage in Australia by John Wardle Architects, sited on a scenic slope overlooking the rolling fields and featuring interiors clad in recycled apple boxes. The residence houses shearers, and family and friends on annual tree planting weekends and retreats.

Above: The shearers quarters is a companion building to an existing cottage on a working farm.

Above: The interiors are clad in Pinus Macrocarpa wood.

Above: A detail of the shelving system.

Above: Custom raw steel shelving holds books and fireplace logs.

Above: The oversize windows overlook the undulating landscape.

Above: The bedrooms are lined in recycled apple box crates from the 1960s, sourced from orchards of the Huon Valley orchards.

Above: A second bedroom is also lined in recycled apple box crates.

Above: Interiors are defined by the wood paneling.
