What if someone in Western Australia was employed by the Government to find new uses for marijuana; new ways to heal, new ways to create. What would the outcome be? A dedicated nature reserve for wildlife, farming, health and wellness. In order to expand on this idea, the client wanted to create over the water villas, built entirely out of hempcrete.
• Open Plan Villas: By understanding that the clients target market was predominately couples or young families, the prototype for this unique facility was an open plan 1 bedroom villa for couples with adjoining walls to create a mini home for young families.
• Water loving: As a health and wellness center, this stunning resort will also double as one of the largest marron farms in Western Australia. Building over the water and into the marron farms brings people into the landscape and as close to nature as possible.
• Hempcrete + Timber: Hempcrete is a unique building material, resulting in a finished product similar to precast concrete. It became only natural that hempcrete and timber partner up in this beautiful creation.
