Feature Home: Living in Harmony with Nature

I recently came across this home featured in Architizer and spent a fair amount of time drooling over both the home and then architect Tim Stewart’s portolio.

This home is located in Queensland, Australia and the land was originally developed into a small orchard. The owners are retiring and took the opportunity to build a new home that is reflective of their lifestyle. The home has been designed so that the garden and broader property are always visible no matter where you are inside.

I was drawn to the wide open spaces in the home, the almost 360 views of nature and the integration of natural elements such as wood timbers combined with white cabinetry and sleek quartz counters. The interior blends seamlessly with the exterior and lets the beauty of the environment stand out.

What do you think? Could you live here?

  1. Love the wood & the horizontal details. The open spaces are great, pairing indoor & outdoor living seamlessly. What I don’t get though with most architecture down under, is that given the enormous amount of bugs, think red-backed spiders, they don’t often have screens on windows or sliding doors!! My mom spent a lot of time “vacuuming” the huge flies at my aunt’s ranch in NZ!! We Canadians have also nailed the use of insulation! Their new builds, even the multi-million dollar ones, are often shy on insulation & u feel the damp during their cold, wet winters. So kudos to comfort & practicality but I’m still after an invite for shrimp on the Barbie at that gorgeous place!! 🙂

  2. I love it. I’m super affected by lack of light, and this house has TONS to spare. Plus the architectural details are amazing.
