The Farm site project, which forms part of the Old Head Golf Links masterplan, will host four luxury holiday homes on what was historically a farmstead.
Architecture & Conservation
The project consists of four large serviced cottages and a two-storey multifunctional space that enclose a communal courtyard. All but the framed rectangular central space of the new development is left untouched by the landscape; the architecture is formed by a natural slope that determines the relationship of the buildings with one another.
The buildings resemble a farmstead in scale, typology and use of material; the four-bedroom houses with their slate covered pitched roofs and the barn-like larger scale building with its metal clad barrel roof. The cottages have large en-suite bedrooms, high ceilings in an open space living room and dining that extends to a burrowed fire-pit deck.
