Country / Hunter Valley Horse Stud

Designer: Jane Irwin Landscape Architects

The architect, Virginia Kerridge, came up with clever solutions to the dramatic site for this fantastic horse stud in Denman. She created amazing skillion roofed buildings which embrace the larger landscape. Irwin's office responded to Kerridge's design by creating a series of garden rooms that settle the building into it's surroundings while still allowing the natural beauty of the larger majestic landscape to dominate. The long powerful stone walls around the three sets of buildings add an extra dimension by separating the domestic from the rural.
