Straw bale house by Brian Balfern Waite

Tuesday, March 17th, 2015

Article source: Brian Balfern Waite

A strawbale insulated, easily erected self-build home that is available as a kit.
It is a simple structure intended to exploit the cost savings of mass production yet flexible enough to cater for many situations.
The design of the structure has been reduced to basically one curved lightweight rib beam which are paired together to form a cruck ‘A’ frame. This cruck is then repeated every meter (bale length) for whatever length of building is required. So the length is infinite, the interior floor width is 5 to 7 meter on two levels, the height is also variable.
Every bale is supported to eliminate settlement and every bale is covered by the roofing which, together with a passive drought system, enables the building to cope with exposed locations.
The vaulted interior is totally free of structural restrictions and so can be divided, or not, to the owners needs.

C-51 HOUSE in Spain by ÁBATON

Saturday, March 14th, 2015

Article source: ÁBATON

This property is located in the midst of a forest of oak trees and therefore it wasn’t possible to free some of the land for landscaping. This matter conditioned the position of the house and how it linked to the exterior. Big windows like picture frames connected the interior to the exterior and viewing terraces were built on the upper floor. The staircase distributes the areas and exaggerates the different levels which characterize this plot of land.
