“A comfortable home that requires less energy to heat, with some classic vernacular design such as steep pitched roof and natural building materials such as stone.”
‘Permaculture Pavilions’ is located in a regional area. The client’s goal is to owner-build their ‘grand design’ dream – a contemporary sustainable home based on permaculture principles, looking at a high-performance building (based on building science and Passive House principles), and a healthy self-sufficient lifestyle. In a climate where extremes of weather are possible, this home is designed to be comfortable all year round, light and spacious, yet only a small building footprint.
Owner-built by amazing clients, C&D!
