Peter Poluet: I think our house shows a lightweight, airy building which is really reinventing concrete. All the concrete components that we used in the house exist in the marketplace already. There’s simple water pipes, that are used for stormwater, and flat slabs, which you can have manufactured anywhere. It can have more or less rooms, according to your family needs. The kids might take their bedrooms with them as they leave.
Michael Harvey: The concrete pipes serve two purposes. Um, first of all, they hold up the roof – that’s the simplest function. But the other function which is really fantastic is they store the water which is collected from the roof panels.
