Article: Shearers Quarters John Wardle Architects This beguiling shearers quarters sits as a companion building to an existing historic cottage on a working sheep farm. Located on the site of the old shearing shed that was destroyed by fire, the residence houses shearers, and family and friends on annual tree planting weekends and retreats. The plan form transforms along its length to shift the profile of a slender skillion at the western end to a broad gable at the east. The geometry of this shift is carried through to the layout of internal walls, lining boards and window frames. Text by John Wardle Architects
