Stacey Farrell: Queenstown Architect
The Black House

The Black House

The Black House Part One, Queenstown. Stacey undertook the design of her own home, for construction of stage one. The site in Queenstown had it's own challenges, but is North facing and has beautiful, extremely large, trees to inspire the design. The resulting design is 'black house' and resembles a black jagged rock, shifted tectonically - split and sliding down the slope. The split faces of the black form are crumpled like the faces of a broken rock and will have vegetation creeping into the gaps.
