It is the top floor that holds the adult bedrooms which sit on the edge while kids’ bedrooms and bunk rooms occupy the space in the middle. These bunk rooms can also be used as additional adult bedrooms whenever needed giving the home an adaptable sheen. Concrete and hardwood timber shape this relaxing and ingenious Aussie home where green is in!

A ground source heat pump and a wood-fired boiler provide additional heating in the winter months while the smart system of shades ensure that there is absolutely no necessity of air conditioning in the summer months. Essentially this is a farmhouse that cuts back on power consumption and aims to reduce its carbon footprint as much as possible.
