[Print] Melbourne: Casa Di Campo by Neil Architecture

Located 32 kilometres west of Melbourne, is a district steeped in a time-honoured tradition of agriculture. In Werribee South, the land is flat, the soil is red and fertile, and the landscape unfolds unto the horizon with market gardens full of lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower, fennel and many more greens. For a district that cultivates a substantial portion of Victoria’s vegetable produce, the area is far from residential, rather marked by the occasional farm house or machinery shed, appearing like islands atop the flat plains. Therefore, when David Neil, founder and principal architect of Neil Architecture, was approached by a family of second-generation farmers to construct a home on the farmland, the true challenge lay in conceiving a residence that would afford the inhabitants adequate privacy and respite from the farmland.
