Where a huge stockpile of woodchips covered the hill, we rejuvenated the soil and planted an extensive native garden to make way for the Ridge Quarters.
“The name both references the building’s location on the hill as well as a play on the typology a simple workers’ or shearers’ quarters, with common areas for cooking, eating and socialising,’ said architect Ross Brewin.
“Avoiding the generic nature of motels and hotels, they intentionally challenge the conventions of short-stay accommodation to frame a surprising and engaging experience of this unique post-industrial site.”
