A curvy, concreted rainforest house that offers a joyful sanctuary has been named as the 2015 Australian House of the Year.
This Planchonella House, located amid the luscious rainforest in the north of Queensland, is designed by young Queensland architect Jesse Bennett. Jesse’s simplistic approach and use of LoFi technologies results in a raw and honest dwelling, has won her this year’s top prize where the award ceremony was recently held in Melbourne.
