The 100-metre long property is the first Victorian property to win Australian House of the Year, and it’s even featured on Grand Designs Australia. There were 502 entries from across the country submitted for the award.
The jurors of the award cite the innovative design and flawless fusion as key features that contributed to the property’s win.
“The Daylesford Longhouse by Partners Hill is more than a remarkable home - it's also a hardworking farm building, a verdant greenhouse and a new business setup, all within the confines of a 100-metre-long shed."
"The opportunity to create a generous volume within a singular footprint is cleverly exploited and the timber and brick buildings within the shed form an internal terrain. The contrast between the scale and character of the industrial building and the craft and detail of the internal structures is unexpected yet delightful. The scale of the shed responds to the expansive landscape setting, but once you're inside, it shifts to the human scale, making it a comfortable space in which to live and work.”
