The Eco-chic Drew House, Australia

Simon Laws an Australian designer of Anthill Constructions has designed the Drew House in Queensland, Australia.According to the firm the holiday home aims to create a kind of luxury campsite amongst mature Bloodwoods and Cabbage Palms near the ocean at, Seventeen Seventy, a town just south of Gladstone the most northerly surf break of Australia’s east coast.

Sleeping pods along with a bath house were built in Brisbane, close to construction services and transported the 500km to site fully completed. The prefabricated parabolic roofed structure and decks were erected onsite and connect the various pods through a large central outdoor living and dining area. Aramax roof sheeting free spans the two identical, but reversed, hardwood self-braced trusses.

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. The eco-chic house collects rainwater in tanks, solar hot water and electrical panel designs make the house largely self sufficient.
