Form and function

I ran into a site with beautiful and thoughtful architecture. I’ve always liked the appearance of rammed earth, and the poured earth this company uses is as beautiful as the rammed earth walls I’ve seen. What this site offers is beyond just the technology of using earth to build homes by ramming or pouring. These homes are both thoughtfully designed and functionally engineered with elegant spaces. I did find the “affordable” base price of $225/sf amusing when I’m trying to build a house at ~$10/sf, but realize the price they’ve quoted is with top end everything with specialist contractors doing floors, heating, et al. The homes do look richly designed and decorated, and I believe I’d be happy to live in any one of them (as long as someone else footed the bill for construction). The spaces are open and airy and feel warm and inviting. Ideal, in my opinion.
