A rustic home designed to nestle into the bush surroundings was the brief for the Muchea house.  Natural aged jarrah timbers internally define the hallways reminiscent of the underground mine tunnel.  Hallways with lower ceiling lined with timber enhance the underground effect.  Plenty of light in the living areas and the beauty and style of rammed earth throughout for the walls.
