Lenting / Twose House
Deciding that their inner city site was a better option than any new green field subdivision on the outskirts, my clients engaged me to design a new home to replace their character but tired old Californian Bungalow. With all kinds of council restraints this proved to be easier said than done but we got there in the end.
This contemporary styled single storey family home features a home workshop space and double garage attached to a 3 bedroom passive solar home. Along with the fully insulated exposed concrete slab, a 2.7m high concrete block feature walls adds thermal mass to the living space.
As per my usual specs; all timber frame is Douglas fir (boron treated only to 140 thick external walls), full Terralana wool insulation and thermal breaks incorporated in the walls, floor and ceiling. Cladding is Linea weatherboard.
