The modern house has a sloped roof which protects the building in a few ways. Mature Jacaranda trees surrounded the old barn building with leaves and flowers, creating organic waste. Architects added a slope to the roof, preventing this natural effect and keeping home interiors dry and safe.

Glass doors connecting home interiors with outdoor home spaces

Despite all improvements, the house exterior and interior design retain the old barn look and warm atmosphere. The antique brick walls feature concrete blocks strengthening them and adding personality to modern interior design. A new flooring, wooden windows, and sliding wooden doors with glass inserts create a very original home that connects modern architectural designs to traditional Australian buildings in rural areas.
