Porotherm Portfolio

In Progress | Rototuna Renovation

POROTHERM Clay Blocks are a perfect addition to this existing Rammed Earth home in Hamilton. The brief was to be able to retain the existing acoustic and thermal properties of the Rammed Earth house. With existing walls 350mm wide, the POROTHERM R25 Th+ block, and plaster easily meets this brief.

The additional living area of 63m2 sits well with this unique home and garden. The challenge is to meet the colour of the original clay on the house with the lime plaster on the POROTHERM blocks. The construction project has gone very well with the walls going up in a matter of days. Designed by MacPherson Architecture Ltd and built by Gibson Construction, the end result will be a seamless transition between the old and new.
