So, you love modern and you love earthy, how about a modern rammed earth home by CHRISTOPHERCHRIS PTY LTD ARCHITECTURE | Australia.
A contemporary new home for a young family relocating from a busy city environment to the Mornington Peninsula. Constructed primarily from locally sourced rammed earth and ship lapped cedar panelling, the house is sited across the ridge of the property.
The elemental form of the building is enhanced by the contrasting and intersecting selection of material, textures and colours, threaded together by the linear rammed earth wall. Key views to the valley are enjoyed from all living areas and bedrooms, whilst the master bedroom is privileged to a unique vista down to the peninsula and onwards to bass straight.
