Recycled concrete house has no carbon footprint

It’s back to basics with this Australian home, a carbon neutral residence with a pared-down modern design that gets the most out of its small footprint.

House A, designed by architects Whispering Smith, is the first of three houses built from high-recycled concrete slabs and recycled bricks. The house, which spans 2,153 square feet and is in the suburbs outside of Perth, has a slightly open floor plan and lack of defined spaces, which adds to the minimalist feel that runs through the entire design.

The house functions as a three-story “mini tower” with a bedroom in the attic and a garage below. The interior of the house is raw and clean. The concrete walls are sparingly accentuated with wooden shelves, leaving plenty of space for greenery to liven up the clean gray palette. Meanwhile, a small outdoor terrace provides access to the outdoors.
