Designed to float above a sloping site overlooking River Derwent in Tasmania, the Cross House designed by Esan Rahmani and Kathryn Hynard is embedded with the natural logic, colors and characteristics of the surrounding Mount Nelson  forest . Ample skylights allow light to flood in from above reducing the amount of energy required during the day, and at night they provide its occupants with a light show of stars. From the rhythmic patterns of the openings that reference the trees to the local timbers used to clad the exterior of the house, the house always finds a way to connect with the landscape. + Esan Rahmani The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
