Our clients wanted a home like no other. This home has been designed and built to make it’s low environmental impact as important as it’s creativity and quality of construction.
The home is curved around the northern aspect so as to maximise the absorbance of winter sun and minimise the summer morning and afternoon heat. The home is finished with recycled Australian Hardwood flooring, decking and featured timbers. Skirtings, feature ceiling plates and double glazed windows were built from plantation grown Tasmanian Oak.
Highly detailed ceilings throughout the home not only creates unique lighting, they also house the bathroom ventilation systems, recess the ceiling fans, and provide a recessed elevating drying rack in the laundry.
In spite of it’s complexities, the highest quality of construction and detailing has been maintained. The home has a great sense of place, picking up on design cues from the local agricultural vernacular, and with locals building it, and many materials coming from nearby.
