Notes on the Farmhouse

From the minute I stepped onto the 58 grounds, I knew working on this unique project would
change me. It is nature at its best, a reflection of our environment’s ability to change and heal. The
Farmhouse is an extension of this ethos as it encourages its guests to experience a similar journey
without disrupting the landscape.

Our intention for the interior design of the Farmhouse was simple – we wanted our guests to be
welcomed to the home they never knew existed in the Cradle. With that being said, the philosophy
of Wabi Sabi has guided the design team to select materials and fittings that welcome the outdoors.
By accepting the inherent beauty of imperfections, we incorporate the process of collecting new and
old pieces to build a sense of familiarity for the guests.

The fittings are sleek and never impose on the humble structure while the softer selections aim to
reflect the changing nature of 58. Each tone and texture serves to soothe, nurture and comfort the
guests throughout their stay. As the user ventures into the common area, they are greeted with a
trinket on the walls that has been handpicked from 58’s bountiful grounds.

The warm and sensitive nature of the spaces within the Farmhouse reflects the community that has,
brick by brick, brought the building to life. Each hard-working individual that was involved in its
construction has left a lasting impact on the space by moulding their personal history within the
walls of the Farmhouse. This interaction between man and form has imparted memories that will
last long after the project’s completion.

58 is the escape where people and nature come together to shape a new reality – we welcome you
to be a part of it.
