HOUSE 15

COTTESLOE

This project, a house for a young family plus occasionally extended family and friends, is built on a 650m2 sloping site within 100 metres of North Cottesloe beach.

The design uses a simple language of stabilized rammed limestone, cedar and steel. The house incorporates both passive and active solar principles. Solar modules, a battery bank and synchronized inverter form the renewable energy system. Excess power can be fed back into the electricity grid.
