Architect in Byron Bay spots Earthship


The Byron Bay district offers great potential to develop the internationally acclaimed earthship (biotecture) house designs.

This earthship is being constructed in Terraeden, Australia. It’s a small scale Earthship inspired studio giving practical demonstration of biotecture principles such as building with natural and recycled materials as well as thermal/solar heating and cooling.
