Environmentally-friendly housing project, Massey University
Our group was very interested in low-tech solutions for this project. We looked at earth walls and compost for creating heat and insulation. We also wanted to use recycled materials to create the house. The real heart of the home was the idea of the kitchen "bench". We saw it as the middle of the home and a communal space for people to work together to grow their own food.
It was a really fascinating exploration of alternative living and turned out really well.
