In about 1998 this design was made by our head tutor April Sampson-Kelly for an elderly couple in Callala bay NSW Australia. They had giant mounds of felled timber and didn’t know what to do with the mounds, so the design incorporated the mounds into hugelkulture, wind protection and these were used to build diversity of micro-climates. The mounds form dry beds in contrast to the swampy flats. Another unusual feature of this design is the removable dance floor built over the large cement tank and a mound rising beside it for seating and privacy. We often design to have ponds reflect light into the home and intensive keyhole beds on the sunny side of the home.
