Organic houses

Houses that reflect their natural environment and its geological features, constructed from natural materials such as rammed earth, hay bale, natural stone, and timbers from managed forests. These houses can be designed as a reflection of the owner’s dreams and their intuitive sense of the land that they had chosen to be their home. Using natural developed shapes such as; hyperbolic paraboloids that can be created using straight timbers gradually inclined, metal roofs that can bend enough on their own, and post and beam structures that allow organic material infills-materials that have great insulating properties, and in combination with thermal mass elements such as concrete floors, stone or rammed earth walls, and natural air flow to higher windows that allow hot air to escape in summer. in Winter reverse cycle ceiling fans that can circulate retained warm air that is released from thermal capture during the day and released at night reducing the difference in di-urnal interior room temperatures.
