Judges Comments

A very interesting concept using the combination of recycled timber and bricks including a covered walk-way with a curved tray roof over a merbau deck.

Proficient use of recycled bridge timbers gives a warm robust feel leading into the home. The concrete polished slab lends further to the energy mass of the building.
