Rainforest Tree House in Cairns, Australia
The architect’s goal was to build a low maintenance and efficient home. This was realized through a use of: aluminium windows, a galvanized steel support framework, a system of photo-voltaic panels for heating the water, colorbond steel external cladding, low VOC paints, sustainably grown wood and locally sourced stone. Suspended above the forest floor on a secluded and private lot by Mt. Whitfield, the Rainforest Tree House by mmp Architects is a work of beauty.
