Blue Mountains Property


– fully recycled P.E.T: environmentally friendly, hygienic, untoxic, uv-stable, energy-efficient, lightweight, by using different colour grain, opacity and clear surfaces are designed according to the desired light-control and views.
Space & Structure:

– floor, wall and roof build one structural element,

– the “coloumns” form spaces for bathrooms, kitchen and internal garden.

– the plan creates a floating space with maximum transparency and interaction with the surrounding site, an idyllic piece of land in the australian blue mountains.

– the bedrooms can be seperated with sliding elements, courtains.

– the lightweight prefabricated structure gets transported  to the site on a truck, and is there filled with water, which provides thermal mass, water storage and bushfire resistancy.

– the water cools naturally during the day and returns the heat slowly during the colder nights.

– the building showcases latest passive ecological technologies, for the client, “ecological homes”.
