Un-built: Australian Rural House, prototype one

August 8, 2011

Groove Architecture’s prototype for a rural home features a pre-rusted corrugated steel roof suited to the harsh Australian climate.

This house prototype is part of our theoretical and technical investigations to explore beautiful, simpler and faster construction techniques suitable for larger or rural properties. A uniquely Australian formal expression and modular type planning enables flexible configurations from small to large footprints and multi-purpose internal spaces with dramatic relationships to views, breezes and sunlight.

Cladding options depend on the site, budget and client preference. The prototype demonstrates how a pre-rusted corrugated steel roof and cladding system could be applied. The result is a dwelling in sync with the site, and with virtually none of the usual external maintenance requirements that arise from harsh Australian weathering effects.

Team Architect: Adrian Bonomi
