Space & Structure:

– floor, wall and roof build one structural element.

– the “coloumns” form spaces for bathrooms, kitchen and internal garden.

– the plan creates a floating space with maximum transparency and interaction with the surrounding site, an idyllic piece of land in the australian blue mountains.

– the bedrooms can be separated with sliding elements, courtains.

– the lightweight prefabricated structure gets transported  to the site on a truck, and is there filled with water, which provides thermal mass, water storage and bushfire resistancy.

– the water cools naturally during the day and returns the heat slowly during the colder nights.

– the building showcases latest passive ecological technologies, for the client, “ecological homes”.
