Today we will show you the inspiring Avalon house in New South Wales, Australia a project by ArchiBlox. This is a great prefab structure that was constructed in 6 weeks. And the modular design minimizes impact in the environment. The place has a few green features and is cozy and charming. In love with the kitchen and bathroom. Take a look!
Make sure to check out ArchiBlox website for further information about this and other inspiring projects. See you next week. :)
Description from the architects: Situated on a sloping site, the module touches the earth lightly and is elevated off the ground on structural posts. With a size of 106 m2 the residence is minimal in size but grand in design intent. The interior is composed with 2 bedrooms with walk in robes, 1 bathroom, open plan kitchen, dining and living and storeroom. A green roof sits atop of the structure, tying the built form beautifully back into the landscape.
The south and east facades are framed by an outdoor verandah which one can sit on and contemplate the harmony of the coastal ambience. The modular design is driven by sustainable methods which include: Lineal structure with east-west orientation allowing cross ventilation; Maximized North windows which allows the home to enjoy the northern sun; Green Roof which minimizes rainwater run off and solar penetration; FSC certified external timbers milled from sustainable forestry methods; Low VOC internal paints and natural oils.
We found this house at ArchDaily.
