Comments Off on Stellar views and a small footprint defines this Tasmanian timber cabin

A small abode perched high on the eastern slopes of Tasmania’s Mount Wellington offers spectacular landscape views. Room11 Architects designed the boxy dwelling with a deliberately compact footprint as an “intensely private” retreat that keeps the focus on outdoor views framed by large windows. In addition to enviable views, natural cross ventilation and a wood-burning stove help keep the home, called Little Big House, attuned to nature. Located high above Hobart, Little Big House is an escape from the city set in a forested landscape. The simple residence is clad in vertical unfinished timber in a nod to the local vernacular construction styles of Southern Tasmania. “A small home with big volumes, the house is a bespoke building in a cool climate,” wrote the architects. “Eschewing many of the traditions of Australian architecture , this house is distinctly Tasmanian.” Related: Historic train shed transformed into Tasmanian School for Architecture Polycarbonate cladding on the east and west facades bring additional light to the minimalist interior without compromising privacy. White walls and tall ceilings create a bright and airy atmosphere indoors; the entry, kitchen, and bathroom spaces are finished in black to provide visual contrast. The focus is kept on the double-height living room set next to a long strip of glazing, while the bedroom is tucked above on the mezzanine level. + Room11 Architects Via ArchDaily Images © Ben Hosking

Architect Dominic Stevens Builds His Dream House For Under $33,000

Comments Off on Architect Dominic Stevens Builds His Dream House For Under $33,000

Many of us dream of one day designing and building our own house – and with economic issues ravaging many countries around the globe and ensuing mortgage crises, it’s not surprising that the self-build is becoming a more appealing option. Dubious about getting a mortgage in Ireland, architect  Dominic Stevens decided a wooden self-build was the way forward. Armed with a simple design, a few friends, and around $33,000 (€25,613), Stevens started putting together his simple home over a single holiday weekend in his native Ireland. This 3-bedroom self-build project is now a reality just 100 miles from Dublin in County Leitrim, where the timber frame house blends into the surrounding landscape.
