Catherine’s Place

This single storey hempcrete home boasts a north facing, open plan living area with high ceilings that provide an incredibly spacious feel.

The 3 comfortably sized bedrooms and two universally accessible bathrooms comes off a hallway that has enough space for shelving to display the owners objects and artefacts she has collected from her many travels abroad. The alfresco is located north of the kitchen, providing protection from the lower winter sun, whilst having the option of creating a heatsink in winter, should the need arise. There is also a servery window between the kitchen and the alfresco, where delicacies can be offered to guests, straight from the kitchen.

Passive solar and energy efficient, this home is carbon negative, generating more energy than it is using, thus feeding green energy back to the grid, and money in the pocket for the owner. A win-win on so many levels.
