Drew House by Simon Laws

Feb 1, 2012

Designed by Australian designer Simon Laws of Anthill Constructions the Drew House was located on the Queensland coast of Australia.

This holiday house aims to create a kind of luxury campsite amongst mature Bloodwoods and Cabbage Palms near the ocean at, Seventeen Seventy, a town just south of Gladstone and the most northerly surf break on the east Australian coast.

Living and sleeping pods along with a bath house were built in Brisbane, close to construction services and transported the 500km to site fully completed. The prefabricated parabolic roofed structure and decks were erected onsite and connect the various pods through a large central outdoor living and dining area. Aramax roof sheeting free spans the two identical, but reversed, hardwood self-braced trusses.

Natural oiled timbers and other low-finished materials create a neutral environment that along with the dynamic indoor/outdoor spaces, allow the maximum enjoyment of the wonderful bushland setting and mild sub-tropical climate. Rainwater tanks, solar hot water and electrical panels and a passive energy efficient design make the house largely self sufficient.
