Hydronic heating was installed throughout and the heat source is via heat pumps. Dynalite and Crestron integration uses DALI protocol. There’s also an on-site sewer treatment plant. A most demanding home which was carried out by many skilled tradesmen. Perfect.
All external walls of this project above ground level are rammed earth. The rammed earth is exposed throughout the house internally, which gives a great natural feel. The rammed earth is of consistent colour and texture, which is not easy to do in such large quantities.
