'Inspired by its setting, Barn House has been thoughtfully crafted to deliver a wonderful family home. It's simple form and minimal black exterior treatment hide the wonderful playfulness of light and space that exists within the interior. This contrast is a joy to experience and is hinted at as one approaches the building and its chamfered gable wall of glass. The design makes great use of standard construction systems to minimise waste and to provide an exceptional building for the very tight budget that the client had.'
'Overall, this is an exceptional house for the budget that is full of well considered detail. The architect has clearly worked hard to provide the client with a wonderful family home which flows effortlessly and is very much part of its setting. The team work between client and architect to there clearly shows in the result.'
