A rammed limestone courtyard house is all about the owners wish to feel like she was "living in a garden".
A court design was adopted to allow maximum cross ventilation, solar access, privacy and security. This design also ensures each room has views to nature and is designed with a guest unit as part of the home but with its own discrete entrance.
Sustainabilty measures include solar passive design, ceiling fans, LED lights, a 1.5 KW photovoltaic system, 1500 litre rainwater tanks, limewash paints and a water wise garden. The home also boasts many unique artworks specifically commissioned such as wrought iron gates, stained glass and shower screens made of Australian jade gemstones found locally.
