Off-Grid Aussie House Proves Sustainable Design Can Be Sexy

This elongated-cuboid home alights on an undulating lawn (as all fancy houses seem to these days), cantilevered partly on one side over a creek in Queensland, Australia. Designed by local studio Jamison Architects, the is meant to encourage indoor-outdoor living. A skylight in the front courtyard, ventilation passages all along the central spine, alternating glass windows all along the periphery. Dubbed the Bach House, the dwelling is completely off the grid, producing its own solar energy, collecting rainwater, and treating wastewater on site.
