Rammed Earth House, Wanaka.
ADNZ Regional Award
Home over 300m2, Winner
Positioned on the side of Mt Iron and surrounded in Kanuka. One of the linchpin design elements is the spectacular use of rammed earth.
Entry into the first level brings you into a warm and inviting atmosphere which then descends down to the living and dining area via extensive rammed earth walls. The main floor incorporates the study, music room and on a slightly lower level is the kitchen, dining and living areas.
Complementing the rammed earth elements on the exterior are Prefa Aluminium Patina Grey cladding and cedar cladding. The interior is recycled Rimu from Christchurch, as well as bamboo and strand board. German style timber window joinery is fitted with triple glazed glass.
