Located in the small Bruny Island in Tasmania, Australia, is this gorgeously contemporary structure that holds such a traditional purpose. A “Shearer’s quarters,” which is quite like a guest house, sits on this huge property and serves its created function– of course it’s shared with the guest house duties when necessary.The space is a gorgeous one set along the water of this historical property. It holds a great open plan which features a huge kitchen, living and dining areas on the main level. There is also a bathroom, laundry space, two bedrooms and a “bunkroom.”

Enormous vaulted ceilings make this additional structure so appealing, and with the wood clad walls and ceilings; it is a masculine and wild styled retreat by John Wardle Architects.
