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.
