The 590-square-metre house is separated into five stand-alone stone and timber ‘sheds’ grouped around a walled entry courtyard, each with a 45-degree gabled roof in the manner of Miles Warren’s quintessential Canterbury houses of the 1960s. These separate but connected pavilions allow the house to remain legibly scaled in the landscape, and also to adjust itself to suit its occupants – intimate for a couple and expanding to suit a wider group as required. A great room centre pavilion is flanked by the main bedroom and garaging to the east, with guest bedrooms and a guest apartment symmetrically aligned at the west.

The site’s vegetation consists of sage, abundant wildflowers, scattered juniper trees and the occasional cactus. The owners, originally from Tennessee, requested a contemporary interpretation of the ranch vernacular that is prevalent in the neighbouring valleys and surrounding ranchlands. The architect researched local agricultural structures and took many cues from these regional buildings in terms of massing, roof forms and exterior materials. The textures and colours of the materials evoke those of the landscape.

The structural steel frame was welded onsite prior to shot blasting and finishing in a two-part epoxy coating. Both new and recycled Australian hardwoods were then used to frame the steel structure with Western red cedar doors and windows used extensively to complete the space. This fenestration also provides connection from inside to outside, cross-ventilation, views and spatial flexibility from season to season. A simple courtyard with shaded walkway connects old and new buildings and also acts as the point of entry to the pavilion.
