Event description

Description

The owners of Kiah had a clear idea of what a home meant to them: a sanctuary. They wanted somewhere light and airy to entertain friends and family, and in which to relax and meditate. Influenced by the Buddhist retreats of Kyoto, the design responds to the client’s desire for peace and mindfulness within suburbia. Once a run-down weatherboard cottage bursting at the seams, Kiah House is now a high-performing sustainable home. Although the site is small, natural light and air have been maximised to all spaces. The openings and windows have been designed to optimise passive solar gain with double glazed windows, a green roof provides additional insulation, and a rain water tank captures roof water which is reused in the toilets and to water the garden. The roof of the retreat is covered in plants and includes a sunken brick bathroom featuring an earthy character similar to the ancient Japanese Onsen. A strong connection to a small private garden, created in the gap between the new addition and the old house, offers a relaxed feeling of bathing within the landscape. Kiah is an indigenous word meaning ‘beautiful place’ and for the owners, the house is exactly that.
