Mysterious Shearer Quarter
Located in the midst of the steppe, the mysterious Shearer’s quarter is a unique construction, made possible by John Wardle Architects. Let’s explore its amazing design!
John Wardle Architects Presents…
This wooden abode is located in North Bruny Island, Tasmania, Australia which long ago was a small cluttered tiny shearers space, that was burned down some time ago. John Wardle Architects renovated this space into a modern fully equipped house, built along the historical 1830’s sheeping farm cottage.
Featuring 130-square-metre of living space, this quarters can offer open living/dining/kitchen area, bathroom and laundry, two bedrooms and a bunkroom. Overall it is possible to host there up to 8 people, and currently this place is occupied by a family of shearers, that are visited sometimes by friends. The house interior design is made solely from wood, what makes it appear a contemporary version of the rustic style. The house is oriented towards its outdoor views, and it offers outstanding vistas of the island. Also of importance is that the Shearers Quarters took the first place at the annual World Architecture Festival 2012.
