Mount Macedon House

Placed on the side of its eponymous mountain in the Central Highlands region of Victoria, the Mount Macedon House builds upon the landscape, rather than adapting it to fit the home. The corten-clad portion of the building, necessary to meet brushfire screening codes, holds the three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Floor-to-ceiling glass encases the open kitchen and living room, with screening around the outside providing some privacy and letting in natural light without obscuring the views, best taken in from the rooftop deck.

  • Tent House

    Set in a clearing roughly 20 minutes from Australia's Sunshine Coast, the Tent House is a versatile dwelling that transitions from winter to summer with ease. It has three bedrooms set on either side of a central open space, home to the living, dining, and kitchen areas. Thanks to sliding walls and roof panels, the interior can be completely closed off and insulated in colder weather, then open up when the temperature calls for it. When open, the white of the tent canopy lightens up the dark structural "box" and concrete floors, while the lack of walls lets inhabitants enjoy views of the surrounding forest and garden.

  • Coodo Mobile Shelter

    Sometimes you love your house, but a better job or better view may take you somewhere else. With its minimally invasive installation, the Coodo Mobile Shelter is made to move.

From there, you can customize the interior with the colors, fabrics, and details you desire. Coodos aren't just limited to residential living. With 11 models and expandable options, these versatile units can be used for offices, guest houses, wellness retreats, or weekend getaways.
