This modern farmhouse was designed for a family with a genuine commitment to living sustainably and self-sufficiently.

Solid stone and rammed earth walls blend beautifully with the natural surroundings, while also enhancing the building’s impressive thermal performance.

Other energy efficient features include a 5kW off-grid photovoltaic solar system which produces an abundance of power, and underground and header tanks which store 100,000 litres of water. Passive design, careful orientation, clever shading and ceiling fans keep the home cool, even during heat waves.
