Contemporary Green Design: Merricks House by Robson Rak Architects

Contemporary Green Design: Merricks House by Robson Rak Architects | Best of Interior Design | Scoop.it

Robson Rak Architects have designed a house on a 10-acre farm located in Merricks North near Melbourne, Australia. The property was bought as a weekender with the intention of building a new house with enough room for their family to grow and enjoy through the generations.

 

From the architects: 

In accordance to the client’s desire for simplicity and material honesty, the house has been reduced to a modest palette of earth, glass and timber. The majority of the internal walls are rammed earth, creating a beautiful, warm, textural look and feel.

The walls are 400mm thick with an internal strip of 100mm thick foam insulation, assisting the natural qualities of the rammed earth in maintaining a consistent internal temperature. The R-value of the walls up to a very high level, and the double-glazing of all windows and doors assists the building in being extremely environmentally efficient as attested by our clients. The high thermal mass of these walls has made the house thermally efficient. Openable windows on the east, west, north and south allows cross ventilation.

We are huge fans of using things for a purpose that they are not perhaps initially intended for. The sense of surprise that this can give to a space is wonderful -that little nugget of shock that turns into realisation and wonder. It is these sorts of moments that bring spaces alive.

Create a Feature Wall with Wallpaper |  Wallcovering Blog | Best of Interior Design | Scoop.it

Creating a feature wall is a dramatic and very en vogue decor idea. Your feature wall is a work of art, setting a dazzling tone in the room. This approach allows you to bring extraordinary designs and colors to a room without the risk of going overboard.  Often people shopping for wallpaper are instantly drawn to dramatic patterns and vivid colors, but ultimately opt to install a more neutral and subdued version of their original fascination. Establishing a single wall to accentuate allows you to choose from a whole new palette of alluring colors and vibrant patterns.
