Casa Natura: Building a Family-friendly Home

Following centuries-old building techniques using timber frame, straw, clay and earth, a mother designs a home for herself and her daughter that’s healthy, ecologically sensitive and naturally nurturing.

Locally harvested white fir posts and beams give a feeling of structural solidity to the interior. Walls are straw-clay, mixed together with a pitchfork and tamped into a temporary plywood frame. Windows are from Pozzi.
