The use of energy-saving lighting installations water saving and recycling systems and smart solar design make the Elliot Ripper house all the more energy efficient. With interiors clad in pristine white sleek modern décor and warm hues splattered generously here and there this is one home that delivers in style!
On the top floor is a ‘Planter Screen’ which acts as a wall that ensures privacy while also growing little shrubs and vegetation which bring freshness to the home. The Maximum Garden House itself was designed with the specific purpose of letting the parents in the house keep a constant eye on the kids even if they are not in the same room.
This led to the creation of a very unique house that uses uniquely crafted wooden blinds that sync with the rest of the home and shut out the outside world when needed. (OR rather when the prying eyes are not needed) Solar-water heating cross-ventilation rainwater harvesting features and natural lighting make up the array of green features that help the building stay sustainable. On the inside the three-floor house are covered in a fine balance of wood and concrete to offer perfect ambiance.
The project has been developed on three levels. On ground level there’s a small enclosed area that accommodates a house keeper the laundry room and all other services needed in the house. Then there’s the concrete level where all social activities happen; there’s the living room a dinning room the kitchen and the swimming pool.
The curved wall was used to create a covered exit to the rooftop terrace where the family living here can enjoy fresh air and views of the surroundings. On the inside the wall also acts as a defining feature helping the architects design a spectacular display of wooden beams and details contrasting with the white walls. The tall graceful curved beams achieve their length by being joined by unusual mirrored dovetails secured with wooden pegs.
