The Great Wall of Western Australia is a sustainable residence project put together by Luigi Rosselli Architects that offers eco seasonal housing to those in need. The homes are built as part of the landscape, embedded inside a 755-foot soil and clay wall using ancient building techniques.

The use of a wall to create sustainable and environmentally friendly living quarters is a return to ancient building techniques that make use of the landscape, rather than building overtop of it. The wall is made from soil and clay offering a foundation that 12 homes are built directly into. The wall offers a natural cooling system through the Earth that is ideal for the heated Australian climate and luxurious organic finishings inside a modern home.
