Live Modern: Drew House

Architecture & Interiors

Modern design is…coming up with a design so unique you can be sure no one else in world has it! We’re just loving the crazy-cool look of the Drew House, a home in Brisbane, Australia by Anthill Construction. The most striking feature of the house, of course, is the giant fan-looking window that terminates the end of a long, tubular-shaped great room that houses the living room and kitchen. Not only eye-catching, it’s probably really functional, too!

The whole house has such a organic, natural feel to it because of the color palette and materials choices. “The Drew house is a holiday retreat for a well know Australian photographic artist. The family took camping trips to the area in their youths so the house aims to create a kind of luxury campsite amongst mature Bloodwoods trees and Palms near the ocean at, Seventeen Seventy, a town just south of Gladstone and the most northerly surf break on the east Australian coast at the start of the Great Barrier Reef.” So dreamy! I’d “camp” here! We suggest reading the whole Architizer project information on this one…there’s a lot of cool sustainable features to this house, like how the sleeping pods don’t even have to be air conditioned because of the design.

What do you think about the look of this house?! Do you like the color palette? Let us know! We LOVE hearing your opinions!

    It looks very futuristic, but at the same time there is something so natural and pastoral to this form of architecture. Like a futuristic world where humans have to live in harmony with nature.

      Yes! I should have written that in the post! You are totally right. That must be why I love it so much…I love future homes. Your comment was so spot on.

    I love this! And not just because it’s in Australia ;) I am always excited to see blends of modern shapes & designs with organic materials and natural color palettes. Makes me wonder why I settle for four square walls…

      Yes! Exactly. Why do we still have the four square walls thing going on when we could have this!

    Interesting space. Not sure if I could live in a tube. It feels a little enclosed for me.

      That’s an interesting point. I may lament the over-abundance of 4 straight walls but I’m certainly used to it.
