Beyond the passive solar design principles a lovely garden and green landscape around the residence add to its sustainable style. Despite a modest street façade the house opens up towards the rear and brings the outdoors inside.
An antique cottage has a strong historic appeal and rocks the shabby almost abandoned look. It’s truly an off-the-grid paradise for those who are happy to trade luxury for nature’s delight. Sometimes the exterior of such a tiny hut almost loses itself amongst the matching trees. The dark and shabby state of the wood makes it an outstanding piece that embodies the concept of nature as the main building element.
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.
White is the color of choice inside and that barely comes as a surprise in a region where Scandinavian style and aesthetics hold sway. Gentle pastel hues shelving that extends all the way up to the ceiling and space-savvy hidden cabinets complete this relaxing and charming Hanko home.
A neutral color palette uncluttered arrangement of décor and generous use of wood along with other natural materials give the home a relaxing ambiance that complements its green credentials perfectly. An understated and exquisite Aussie home where less definitely feels like more!
