The design collaboration between Simon Laws of Anthill Construction s led to the development of an original home entitled Drew House and located in Queensland, Australia. Situated near the famous Great Barrier Reef, it goes without saying that this dwelling had to be as environmentally-friendly as possible. Here is how the architects took this challenge: “Living and sleeping pods along with a bath house were built in Brisbane, close to construction services and transported the 500 km to the fully completed site. The prefabricated parabolic roofed structure and decks were erected on site and the various pods were connected through a large central outdoor living and dining area. Natural oiled timbers and other low-finished materials create a neutral environment that along with the dynamic indoor/outdoor spaces, allow the maximum enjoyment of the wonderful bushland setting and mild sub-tropical climate. Rainwater tanks, solar hot water and electrical panels and a passive energy efficient design make the house largely self sufficient“. Modern living, beauty all around and peacefulness: find this home as appealing as we do?
