TreeHugger Best of Green Young Architect Andrew Maynard is building a body of interesting work in Australia; the latest is the Mash House, an addition and renovation. With its curved base and top, it looks like it was just dropped there, but in fact was very carefully knitted into the existing building.
Andrew is generous with his images and stingy with words here, so we are reading drawings and the interpretations of Geoff Manaugh at BLDGBLOG, but this drawing shows the extent of the work.
Is that really grass inside the house?
The start of the connection to the living/dining/kitchen addition to the rear, with a mile long counter running through it.
Geoff describes it as "gloriously retro-colorful."
There will, no doubt, be a green story here, told with humour. We will update when we hear it. Lots more pictures at Andrew Maynard Architecture
