is actually a hydronic heating radiator (you can see another one in the rear of the photo on the second wall). The yellowish walls are stabilised rammed earth: a bit like concrete but more rustic. They involve the compaction of successive layers of dirt into a formwork. It's a very beautiful material,

The architects treated the external portion of the rammed-earth wall with a clear sealant for waterproofing. Inside, the architects left it untreated to maintain texture and color.

Hi Kate, Thanks for your compliments :) No, the walls are not concrete, they're stabilised rammed earth. The material is a bit like concrete, but lower
Kelheg: When the house was built in 2006, the rammed earth cost around AU$300/sqm. I'm sure it's more now. It's a fair bit more expensive than brick, but it is 300mm thick, which is about the same as a triple

a refined palette of materials that live naturally in the surroundings of the Red Rock Secret Mountain Wilderness.

What material has been used to cap the rammed earth?
I love it. I need to organize this to be done to my house which has many uncapped rammed earth columns and walls now quickly eroding. Do you have know any contacts for Australia who could do this for me? I am on the gold coast.

you avoid having to put a pool fence at the edge nearest the rammed earth wall. I want to do the same in a new build, and am coming across all sorts of constraints.
I have corrosion of my external rammed earth walls and some internal. Can u recommend a good sealer? How are
not sure which country you're in. Based on your imperial measurements, I'm guessing not Australia (which is where we and the project are). Here, rammed earth costs around $400 - $500 per square metre. Since 8 x 8ft = 2.4 x 2.4m = 5.8 square metres, that would equate to around AU$2,600 give or take. Something
The wall extends to meet a swimming pool behind the home. The dirt was sourced mostly from a local quarry for its yellow-orange color. The rammed-earth wall was built in stages, about 1½ feet at a time. Formwork shutters

received alerts. Urban Landscape: I'm not sure which part of the photo you're referring to. The pale yellow material that's wall height is stabilised rammed earth sourced from local quarries. At the very left edge of the photo is the start of a timber wall which runs alongside the lap pool. It's made from
using similar combination of material for building our new home (Central Coast NSW - overlooking the bays) - will be looking into the 'stabilised rammed earth' you have used - lovely. Beautifully photographed too. Congratulations again.

Mihaly and Slocombe constructed the home on a concrete slab foundation. A rammed-earth wall forms the spine of the home. Although this part of Australia can get extremely hot, they used insulation, house orientation, thermal mass and cross ventilation to keep the inside temperature moderate. A large

The entrance to the house is from the gap between the main house and studio. The rammed earth walls in this photo are in the background and to the left. Note: See how the wood walls inside the house have a similar "coursing," arising from a completely different type of construction.
