Contemporary Green Design: Merricks House by Robson Rak Architects

Contemporary Green Design: Merricks House by Robson Rak Architects | Contemporary Art, Design and Technology | 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.

I would love to design my own place like this one day. Gerogoues, green, and contemporary. What more could you ask for?
