Majorca VIC


Addition’s to an existing single storey weatherboard home.

Located in central country Victoria the resultant form of the Majorca addition is in direct response to the extremes of climate & environment presented by its location. With summers of oppressively dry heat & winters of bone-chilling cold the need for this building to be able to adapt to its environment was of the utmost importance.

Ample sheltered outdoor areas & high-levels of natural ventilation arranged to capture & control prevailing breezes allow for comfortable living during summer, while strategically composed bodies of thermal mass, abundant solar access, open fire heating located centrally within the living space & modestly proportioned interior spaces capable of being isolated allow for a desirable winter living condition.

To further add to this building’s ‘green’ credentials, salvaged, recycled & re-claimed materials collected by the home’s owners shall form the greater part of the addition’s built fabric.
