Lune de Sang is a unique inter-generational venture that will see former dairy farm properties transformed into a rainforest landscape for selective harvesting. Time is a fascinating consideration for the project as the native species planted will take up to 300 years to mature. The sheds and houses designed amongst the site are conceived with a sense of permanence in response to the rainforest timeframes.
Toby Breakspear was fortunate to work on the Lune de Sang project for two years with CHROFI prior to establishing Breakspear Architects. He is very grateful for the experience, and it has informed much of how he approaches design with Breakspear Architects.
