A certain house in a previous post caused a little stir and no wonder because it is a spectacular piece of architecture. The Wheatsheaf House by Jesse Judd is just outside Daylesford in Victoria, Australia set amongst the stark and eerie landscape of gum trees. A holiday home Judd played with the idea of a tent or a shack, something impermanent on the landscape. Ideas inspired by old plywood caravans and bus shelters were translated into a steel, laminated glass and plywood cocoon which sits gently on the land and addresses the striking beauty of the site. Variously described as rose to red to orange (depending on which article you read or the lighting in a photo you peruse) the interiors are stained plywood forming a striking frame for the minimalist modern furniture within. The drama in in the c shaped main living area. Sleeping and bathing are in a relatively simple compartment down a corridor. It’s an organic, truly magical building.
