METROPOLITAN AND REGIONAL ARCHITECTURE STUDIO P/L
Welcome to the MARA_house, our architect designed, 8* star rated, high performing, fixed price, healthy and sustainable home.
MARA_HOUSE uses a planning system of pre-designed parts with a layout that is completely customizable. This hugely improves cost efficiency and accuracy, and speeds up design and construction time.
Built-in flexibility means we can optimize a layout for better performance. This greatly increases comfort and reduces running costs. It also means we can adapt to your brief and to suit any site.

The north harcourt farm house task is: to alter this farm house to make the most of the sweeping views of the granite outcrops and fertile valleys of north Harcourt; to find a way to utilise the deep veranda space; to bring light into the building; to expand the feeling of the interior without exceeding the bounds of the existing footprint; to project the outside in, and the inside out.
