Shiplap timber and rammed earth beauty

By Kim McFayden 7 years ago

This striking timber-clad design features a clever combination of some our favourite materials – rammed earth, concrete and and the extensive use of timber to soften and enhance both the interiors and the exteriors. Neil Architecture rose admirably to the challenge of squeezing two dwellings onto the small parcel of land, while still maintaining an attractive frontage from the street. A rammed earth wall visually anchors the two dwellings into the landscape, with the preservation of some original landscape features helping to maintain a lovely, natural appearance from the street that was in keeping with the character of the neighbourhood.

The clever combination of charcoal and steel blue interior colours perfectly offset the rammed earth, polished concrete and timber floors.

What do you think of this home? Let me know in the comments 🙂
