"PELOHA" - Bermed Solar Hemicycle House P Shadforth, (Owner builder),
Gosnells East, WA, Architect Gérard Siero, 2006 - 9.

Awarded a Commendation for Sustainable Architecture 2010 Australian Institute of Architects Awards, Western Australian Chapter. It was featured on Better Homes and Gardens, Ch 7, 20120210. Between 1300+ people have visited the house on Sustainable House Day 2009 - 10.

The Client had attended one of Gérard′s Solar House Design workshops for the WA Sustainable Energy Development Office. A semicircular, earth integrated, passive solar house was briefed and successfully negotiated through Council.

Construction features concrete filled masonry walls, direct-glazed structural steel window wall with low-e glazing and louvres, earth berms for thermal mass, earth pipes for summer cool air supply, timber doors, highlights and bay window, structural plywood ceilings and a conical arc roof. Predatory prices from concretors led to a change from a roof garden on concrete to a custom-made standing seam sheeted roof.

Project Architect and Project Management Advisor: Briefing, Site analysis and Planning, Design and Documentation, Consultant coordination, Negotiations and Approvals, Contract Administration. Due to the boom, builders were not available or too expensive, so we assisted the client through owner building, including sourcing trades, additional detailing, programming and on-site problem solving.
