Sustainable materials, solar passive energy.

Blue Fruit designed a contemporary house in a botanical setting, using solar passive orientation and a luscious palette of natural materials, like mt gambier limestone, blackbutt timber parquet and melaleuca veneer.

Pavilion defines function

Pavilion defines function

The house is composed of 3 pavilions: a living space at the front, with a saw-tooth roof profile allowing raked ceilings & clerestory windows with views to the treetops; a bedroom pavilion at the rear, with a sweeping soffit clad in VM Zinc and walls of Bondor, and a linking pavilion between the two incorporating a his and hers study with full height glazing and views to the northern garden.

 

Boat soffit

Boat soffit

Zinc clad soffit is visible internally through the clerestory windows of the main bedroom - so that one can lie in bed and follow the line of the soffit up to treetops by day and stars in the sky by night. 

Waterfalls

Waterfalls

A raked roof overhangs a stone gutter at garden level, so that when it rains, rainwater falls over the corrugated edge of the roof to create a "waterfall" effect visible from the living space.

The fallen rain is collected at ground level and dispersed into the garden.

Floors of Portugese natural cork are soft underfoot, while ancient Mt Gambier limestone blocks contrast with thermally efficient Bondor walls to keep the bedroom pavilion cool in the hot Australian summer.

Parquet floors of Blackbutt timber, a native hardwood, provide a robust surface for an easy to care for home.
