Warburton House 2004

A home low in cost, extraordinary in the sense that it is so ordinary.

Built to suit both cold and hot temperatures, withstand bushfire ember attack, landslip and minimise erosion, it also is self sufficient in rainwater and recycles waste water on site. Maintenance is practically zero and running costs are very low due to passive solar design and above average insulation.

This is an exercise in stripping away all but the essential. What is interesting though, is that even the most conservative visitor to this house feels at ease, instantly at home. Everyone leaves feeling inspired to rethink their ‘dreamhomes’.
