The engineering firm Carterwilliamson Architects presented the Cowshed House in Sydney, Australia. The name of the project is directly related to the history of the building, which used to be a village barn. Architects have transformed a historic building in the eclectic area into a modern residence with a unique design. Today the house is a simple structure with brick walls and open-plan designing, where all the rooms are interconnected and have a direct access to the courtyard garden. The house was built under a large tree jacaranda, so the slope of the roof is made with a certain angle to avoid flooding from the lush crown down of the courtyard.
