Tractor Shed by Design & Beyond Architects
Tractor Shed is an airbnb guest house located in Bangalow, Australia, designed in 2020 by Design & Beyond Architects.
The brief was to incorporate Airbnb guest accommodation onto the end of a tractor shed on a working cattle farm in Bangalow NSW.
The durable exterior materials of cedar, Colourbond metal, charred timber, and glass integrate well into the surrounding rural environment. A covered deck provides shade to the north and west-facing wrapping windows. Underlined with spaced cedar battens the overhang provides material connection to the oversized sliding barn doors accessing the tractor shed.
Light timber walls and floors help reflect daylight deep into the interior.
The adjacent organic kitchen garden with a daybed extends the living area.
