Today we will show you a home in Daintree Rainforest, in Queensland, Australia, a project by m3architecture. The house was designed for life in a tropical rainforest and the result is a modern and cozy space. From materials to layout, concept and facade, the project is inspiring. Take a look! Make sure to check out m3architecture website for further information about this and other inspiring projects. See you next week. :)
Poplar Creek Public Library
A former library located in Streamwood, IL, has undergone a beautiful transformation in 2009 by the hands of Frye Gillan Molinaro Architects. Much of the original structure of the building was maintained and the new project brought even more life to the library.
The combination of external exposed concrete and glass contrasting with an industrial-style interior, with apparent pipes and ceiling height in most of the building, as well as the white walls with some mixed colors bring happiness into the library. Besides the aesthetic issue, the Poplar Creek is a great example of using energy efficiency and sustainable construction.

The Poplar Creek public library gave all the team members the opportunity to comprehensively analyze the environmental effect of expanding the existing facility. It became all too clear that this was a project that should not only look towards the future but utilize the most current ideas in building technologies.
