Smithton House design was a collaboration design with Architect Gary Hole in south west Tasmania. It was a single story 3 bed room house. Limestone Rammed earth walls and bedroom alcoves are the main features that give the house its contemporary form. Hydro thermal flooring was used inside to keep the temperature warm in what is mostly a cold climate.
Under the house is a concrete thermal accumulator.
The design makes the most of the northern aspect on sunny winter days. Extra insulation in roof and argon gas double glazed windows where implemented so that heat loss was minimised from the extensive glass facades.
