Compact Solar Passive - Dorrigo

This solar passive environmental gem incorporated many aspirations for minimising what has become the ‘unnatural’ human footprint in a compact functional form. This small rural acreage property with a gentle north facing slope had the opportunity to maximise the solar attributes, thermal mass, integration into the slope and views. Two opposing skillions in scale and form create a bold contemporary but simple shell. This fusion, with the basics of timber, straw bale and mudbrick and modern glass technologies to create a pastiche that seeks to balance our modern sensitivities. (as yet unbuilt)
