The Barwon Heads House by Adam Kane Architects
With the Barwon Heads House, Adam Kane Architects have transformed a weatherboard cottage built in the 1800s into a contemporary home for a young couple. Moody and textural, the barn-inspired extension conceals a spacious interior laden with American oak, silver travertine and hand-scratched plaster, softened by more delicate furnishings. We spoke to Adam about playing with contrasts and his unwillingness to compromise when it comes to form and function.
A few years ago, the couple embarked on the adventure of building their dream home, enlisting Sydney-based architect Hannah Tribe and interior, furniture and lighting consultant Arabella McIntosh to bring their vision to life. We spoke to Jodie, Hannah and Arabella about how it all came together.
