Solar-powered Christian Street House is made from locally sourced materials in Brisbane

Backed up against a hillside, the long and rectangular Christian Street House stretches east to west. High gabled roofs face the street and create shelter for a patio and garage. Constructed for minimal maintenance, the home is primarily made from locally sourced brick, timber, and concrete. The brick and concrete form the base and framework, whereas the unpainted timber clad the interior walls and floors. Large windows and floor-to-ceiling openings allow cooling winds to pass through the building.
