PROJECT | Country Homestead – renovation and addition        COMPLETED | 2015


The project involved renovations and additions to an existing
farmhouse that was built prior to the turn of the century


The design by Sam Teoh Architects included the reorganisation of rooms while living areas, service areas and bedrooms were added, transforming it into a homestead capable of accommodating the extensive family


Where possible materials were recycled from retired buildings on
the property to preserve the legacy of the previous generations


The material palette was carefully chosen for its durability, functionality as well as to reflect the sensitivity
of the previous generations and accommodate the current owner’s vision for the future


Significant elements, materials, and fixtures which were sentimental to the owners as they were hand
built by the previous generation were commemorated and reused in the original parts of the house


Modern slick interiors which reflect the current owners aesthetic preferences
were designed by Sam Teoh Architects for the new additions



The interiors were refurbished to include modern day
conveniences, while maintaining key historic features
