Inspired by a love for the backcountry with signature corrugated iron cladding and a simple pitched roof, this off-the-grid Hanmer House really does resemble a modern take on a humble shepherd's hut.

As a long-standing partner of Julia Atkinson-Dunn at Studio Home, when we heard about this incredible off-the-grid project we were keen to get involved. The focus for the new Atkinson family home interior was sustainability with a mix of second hand furniture, odds and ends pulled from their collective homes and a few new pieces to tie it all perfectly together.

In keeping with the natural look interior, Julia selected 2 Immerse sofas, a two and three-seater for the living room “our deep, comfortable nood sofas allow us all to sit together as a family.”

These complement the warm tones in the home with its high ceilings and grooved ply walls and provide a comfortable and practical solution for all the generations of family that gather there.

“We selected 2 Immerse sofas from nood which provided not only the right solution for the space but also the lovely textural, tough fabric with no loose cushions to get squashed by catapulting children, we can vouch for their extreme comfort.”

The living and dining area is all open plan so Julia’s choice of the large forst jute rug helps separate the living and dining spaces and encapsulates the two immerse sofas.

The Hanmer House has the perfect balance of character, charm, and functionality – the ideal space for creating many Atkinson family memories to come.
