The Drew House (8pics)

The Drew House located in Queensland, Australia by designer Simon Laws of Anthill Constructions is by definition 'unique' in everyway. From the breathtaking location, to the choice of materials and event the clever fin-panel circular window... this home is one-of-a-kind. 

The unusual building structure is located in a beautiful setting south of the city of Gladstone, on the east Australian coast at the very start of the Great Barrier Reef. There are many elements and great ideas about the Drew House that will probably inspire you. The prefab, tube-shaped sleeping and living pods along with the bathhouse were first built in Brisbane – about 500 km from the spot – and were transported only later to the site.  Family gatherings and social events are encouraged by the roofed structures that link together the pods with the huge outdoor living and dining spaces. Plenty of minimally finished wooden materials – for example Australian hardwood timber – were used excessively throughout the luxury campsite. Yet, this unique place is not just about comfort and luxury – it is very environment-friendly, down-to-earth and almost completely self-sufficient holiday home. The electricity is powered by the Sun as well as the hot water; rainwater is collected in tanks and a community water recycling system has been installed also.
