As you know, one of my favorite insomnia cures is to wander around the world looking at people’s houses.
When you’re kind of zoned out and delirious, there’s nothing better than imagining yourself, say, off the coast of Australia renovating a wooden cottage.
Come with me today on a trip to a remote bay of Bruny Island, Tasmania and an architect’s dreamy project to restore a sea captain’s cottage built in 1830.
What would Captain Kelly make of his cottage now?
Here are details about this project, including photos of what a dismantled cottage looks like.
The architect is John Wardle Architects. The project is beautiful. And the little movie up top is a delight. Spoiler alert: there are sheep.
PS While we’re at it, here’s another project by John Wardle Architects: Shearers’ Quarters.
