This beautiful family home combines traditional brickwork with rammed earth. Commercially framed windows and sliding doors along with louvre windows provide the perfect medium for harnessing summer breezes and cross ventilation.

The black clay Bristile roof tiles which were imported from Spain; are in sharp contrast to the leafy dark olive green and striking red rendered façade. The home features quirky design elements and many innovative products too numerous to mention.

It features cavity insulation, ceiling batts plus Aircell to roof cover, acoustic bricks internally and feature cavity sliders throughout. A water harvesting system collects water and sends to 4 x WCs, and tops up the pool. The living areas of the home, including a large north-facing alfresco, wrap around a swimming pool and spa providing an ideal entertaining area.

Although it was challenging designing a home to fit this unusually shaped battle-axe block, a sense of space and a north facing living area has been achieved and every square inch of the land has been utilised. This was a fully turnkey project.
