    Nicholas, what a fabulous piece of architecture you have crafted. Great work.
    You say it is from your studio on a tight budget. What is your studio and can you give a guesstimate of the cost per sq metre?

    There are of course superficial linkages to Kerry Hill's Ooi House in Margaret River where rammed earth is a refined architectural language in the region.

                  • Wow amazing!! But I think the chimney is terrible. It is like this beautifully crafted black box with an ugly aluminium tube connected to it:$

                          ARCHITECTURAL AXIOM Nº1:SURRENDING IN PRESENCE OF OUTSTANDING VIEW (LIKE SEA).
                          Now, is curious to see the similarity with how result the house shape (interior and exerior) located near the coast in any place in the world...reminds me a compatriot (Mathias Klotz), if you don´t know his work, check the page (mathiasklotz.com) and see (the houses) by yourself (freaking or not?)...not misunderstood me, i think that's the way in this context case, in other words, GOOD AND APPROPRIATE WORK!
                          One question (sorry if i seem ignorant): what is rammed earth? it's like adobe or something like that?
                          Keep going dude

                          • Roofing & Opening Widths?

                            Thanks very much for all the detailed photos and explanations, the building looks great - not orange, like lots of the rammed earth buildings and sits beautifully in the landscape.

                            I am actually working on a rammed earth building for my final design project at uni - I was wondering why you made your roof how you did - overhanging, instead of hidden behind a parapet, was it to protect the top of the wall, and also if you had any information about opening widths? I have read that without support (lintel) usually no more than 1m but with lintels a much greater span is possible? did you find that or is your glazing full height becasue you couldn't get the opening widths you required?

                            thanks very much

                            • That is beautiful!
                              I'm curious (I hope you didn't already written in this post), what kind of glass did you used? Did you do a study on the performance of the house (observing the U value, the dimensions of the transparent facade and so on)? Is that required in Australia? ('cos in Italy there's now a specific decree that's prerscribe specific U value and ask to do an environmental certificate for the house's performance).

                              P.s. I hope i've been clear, I'm not so good in english!
