Innovative Home Design in Australia!

Tuesday, February 07, 2012

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.
