Designed by ArchiBlox the natural slope of the lot coupled with a series of gum trees and lush green landscape defined the overall form of the new residence and its cantilevered living form.
Set about apart from one another both the prefab structures provide a stunning escape with one overlooking the lake at the base of the mountain and the other perched atop and providing spellbinding views of the entire mountainous and green terrain.
A tiny treehouse has the potential to feel a part of the trees it is set amongst especially if they have vibrantly green leaves and the house has a corresponding wooden exterior. A small treehouse high above the ground may not be for the faint-hearted but it is the perfect destination for those with an adventurous spirit that want to get the most out of their temporary residence!
A large deck with pergola shapes the outdoor living zone with space for vines and creepers to grow in over time. Despite their modern appeal the bedrooms embrace a refined Scandinavian look even as sliding glass doors and a long corridor filled with lovely artwork complete this exquisite Aussie home.
There are times when all of us wish to move away from the constant noise that surrounds us and into a setting that is far more tranquil and healthy. A holiday retreat in the woods a summer vacation home perched on the edge of a lofty cliff and overlooking beautiful mountains or even a second home where you spend more than half the time each year enjoying the untouched jungle landscape around you – every one of these ideas does sound like an absolute dream! The hard part of it all is to have both the resources and the ability to build such structures in remote locations. That is until you come across the designed by MAPA.
The bunker is not the only upgrade that the Brighton Residence acquired with a new outdoor living area being added next to the living space inside. Extending into the backyard and pool area the new extension houses a portable lounge TV fireplace and even barbecue zone. A timber landing connects the spa and lap pool with the rest of the setting and the entire backyard seems like a world in itself – an ideal retreat for a stylish staycation!
A fully wooden cabin is lovely and traditional but it can become a monotonous sight if all sides of the house are exactly the same and there is no variety. Big windows are an important piece to include into the design as they will create not only an illuminated interior but also an innovative exterior!
