A recycled brick wall runs through this breezy home in Australia

Sydney-based architect and photographer Edward Birch designed the light-filled residence at the base of a mountain in Meroo Meadow. Spread out across 280 square meters, the linear home is anchored by a recycled brick wall that runs the length of the building and imbues the interior with warmth and softness.

The Cedar Lane House is organized into three pavilion-like… View full post on Inhabitat – Green Design, Innovation, Architecture, Green Building

Unique Fuzzy House offers locals a public shortcut through the building

When architecture studio Situation-based Operation (SO) was asked to create a home in Chiang Mai, the brief came with an unusual request: preserve the existing desire path. Since the plot had been left empty for many years, locals had created a desire path, or shortcut, through the land between two roads—and the owner wanted to keep that path functional for the community. As a result, the architects designed the Fuzzy House, a concrete home that blurs the line between public and private use.

INTERVIEW: Inhabitat’s own Greg Beach on telling global stories through the lens of a small town

Modular Cylinder House weaves its way through a forest in France

The unique Cylinder House in Lyon, France, takes modular architecture to the next level. Cyril Lancelin, French architect and founder of creative studio Town and Concrete, imagined the house as a large cluster of glass tubes that utilize height differences to create an undulating roof surface and create a space that can grow without disrupting its wooded surroundings.

The architects used a system of cylinder juxtaposition to allow future extensions of the house, but also meander around trees to… View full post on Inhabitat – Green Design, Innovation, Architecture, Green Building

Amazing elevated museum lets you stroll through the treetops in British Columbia

Several elevated gallery spaces of this angular museum meander through a forest in British Columbia. Canadian firm Patkau Architects designed the building to house a private collector’s artwork and keep it safe from flooding.

An elevated walkway leads to the main entrance of the building, positioned under an angular form clad in pale wooden slates. While the exterior facade, clad in black metal panels, gives the building an artificial appearance, the wood-dominated interior connects it to its… View full post on Inhabitat – Green Design, Innovation, Architecture, Green BuildingEco funeral – Inhabitat – Green Design, Innovation, Architecture, Green Building
