A project where we have put a lot of our favourite earth friendly techniques into practice! Earthcrete, lime plaster, Moroccan tadelakt plaster, jack arch roofing, ferrocement built-furniture, natural stone floors & exterior mud plaster. We are at our best when we have the freedom from a supportive client and also skilled masons to bring life to the ideas brewing in our heads!

The design on both the ground and first floor involves an open plan with living, dining and kitchen spaces flowing one into the other. The two bedrooms are private and designed to allow plently of natural light and ventilation. The semi-covered terrace on the second floor has been designed for guests to rest their soles, a space to feel the cool sea breeze even during the hot summer months!
