September Newsletter – Harakeke Drive, Taupo Porotherm Project


Hi Everyone,

This month we would like to share with you just how efficient Porotherm walls are to design and build with. The latest Porotherm model of the e4 crafted by Federico shows just how simple and fast the walls really can be…
Single leaf walls are much more efficient from a design and performance point of view than having multiple layers to a wall. Designing and building takes a lot less office design time and a lot less organisation of multiple trades on site. You can see just how simple and efficient the walls are by watching here
If you missed our latest EBOSS article on why high performance Porotherm clay blocks eliminate the need for pre-cladding by acting as the structure, building wrap and lining backed by a 150 year durability guarantee, read here. Porotherm needs no extra insulation or strapping and lining – just clay and breathable plaster. 
Catch up with our latest Porotherm project about to start in Taupo and a few pics of a Christchurch brick project using one of our favourite grey bricks designed by Case Ornsby. Grey is timeless, not to mention very on-trend.
Catch up on the latest with Cass – interior designer at Cassandra Swan Interiors and her work on their Porotherm Taupo project.
Watch out for our next newsletter where we publish our Design Guide ‘Designing for Porotherm – Architects Edition’.
As always, we love your feedback – please let us know what you think or get in touch with us here.
The best to you in great design and building for the future.
