Innovative Home Design in Australia!

I just love reading about people thinking outside the box. Simon Laws of Anthill Constructions went way outside the box when he collaborated on the design of this fantastic, eco-friendly home near the Great Barrier Reef in Australia!! The Drew House (owner is Australian artist, Marian Drew) was created to be a homey, camp site like structure for the Drew family. The house is mostly prefabricated and has rainwater tanks, solar hot water and electrical panels AND a community water recycling system! So cool!

 The prefab pieces are connected by decks and metal roofs.

 I love this covered outdoor area!!

 2 separate sleeping areas connected by a walk deck.

 Such gorgeous wood decks and floors!! I love the rounded main living area of the house!

 Huge windows that open wide to the outside.

 LOTS of seating (or extra sleeping space) inside!

I love this window setup! The wood panels can be open or shut to help control the air flow in the space! Brilliant!

Such a simple kitchen design but so fabulous!

 This rounded walls of the living room remind me of the Hobbit homes! Love it!

So gorgeous.

Can't get enough of this house! So simple, yet very innovative.. I feel like going home here everyday and staying indoors (well outdoors too - in the patio) :) Love it!
