SHEDS built on the 92-hectare property in Federal called Lune de Sang have been nominated for the National Architecture Awards.

The sheds were conceived as "site ordering devices" by Sydney-based architects CHROFI.

"The sheds are grounded, rhythmical buildings with a crisp repetition of elements that sit with other constructed landscape elements to establish a territorial line..," the design brief said.

The sheds are built into the hillside and utilise earth berms and stone retaining walls. Lune de Sang is owned by former Whitehaven coal executive Andy Plummer. In 2012 BRW listed his personal wealth as $240 million.
