Drew House by Simon Laws

30 Jan

I have said it before and I will say it again: the Autralians are MASTERS at the use of corrugated cladding as a design element in architecture.

Simon Laws of Anthill Construction constructed this holiday home, located on the Queensland coast of Australia. The home aims to create a kind of “campsite” amongst the indigenous forest of Bloodwoods and Cabbage Palms. The living, sleeping and bath house pods were constructed in Brisbane and then moved to the site. The parabolic roofed structure and decks were fabricated onsite and connect the various living areas with outdoor living spaces. The home is largely self sufficient in terms of energy, sporting rainwater tanks, solar heated hot water and electrical panels.

I could camp like this!
