The Barn House is a semi-rural house design consisting of two barn-shaped buildings with a central private courtyard. While the materials, corrugated Colorbond sides and cedar-end walls were selected to enhance the country feel, the detailing is distinctly modern.

Our builders in Geelong have made the walls and roof extend past the cedar-end walls, suggesting a thin structural skin. Windows are narrow and slender, set within a protruding white frame and giving the illusion of a shadow box. Even the pergola follows the barn-shape profile.

At Topic Builders & Architects, we pride ourselves on our Geelong house designs which offer our clients a home that is both functional and visually stunning.
