Rammed Earth Walls Surround This House In Australia

A modern home with rammed earth walls.

Luigi Rosselli Architects have shared photos of a home they renovated in Sydney, Australia, that had rammed earth walls added.

The original home, whose design was akin to that of a drilling platform, had two existing floors hovering above, and was entirely disconnected from its surroundings.

The updated home now includes a further two floors to allow for a direct link to the garden.

Above the stair is a deep void capped with a large skylight that allows natural light to flow down through each level.

The descent is easy and comfortable and leads first to the main living-dining-kitchen area, and then on again to the lower floors which house a guest bedroom, a sunroom, and a gym.
