Farm Cottages, Lake Hayes

A cluster of five farm cottages nestle into the Threepwood Homestead paddock, above Lake Hayes.  With the sloped hill of Threepwood farm as the backdrop, the cottages each face the lake and its wetlands, and the wider mountain panorama from Soho to the Remarks beyond.  Clad in NZ pine, and corrugated iron, the low-pitched cottage forms are a humble and recessive response to the adjacent historic red woolshed and white homestead.
