Un-built: Cowaramup Residence

November 19, 2010

Naked Architecture’s concept for this residence takes its strength from a disciplined brief, and a strong commitment to energy efficient design.

Designed for a young professional, this house takes its strength from a disciplined brief. Modest in overall size, the project has a strong commitment to Energy Efficient Design (EED). The most important consideration with EED is limiting the size of the house.

A stabilised rammed earth spine extends from the entry through the length of the house providing warmth and thermal mass. Structural insulated panels provide an economical and thermally effective cover to the building, sloping up to the north allowing deep penetration of winter sun onto a polished, thermally massive, charcoal concrete floor.

North facing double glazing to the living area and double glazing to the bedrooms further stabilise diurnal temperatures year round.

*Team* Architect: Clayton Lindley; 3D Modeller: Darcy MacDonald
