An Architect’s Own Environmentally-Friendly Timber Home

Ben Callery, a Melbourne-based architect, designed his own environmentally-friendly family home around a simple idea, have it more in touch with nature. He looked to achieve this by using as much natural material as possible which were sustainably sourced, and of course, having vines and plants.

The use of timber throughout not only gives the interior a nice warmth, but Ben also wanted to see how thermally efficient a timber home could be. The timber was radially sawn, which means much less wastage, and is used on the external cladding, sun shading elements, internal battens, windows and more.
