Located on a remote island, the French Island Farmhouse is an off-gride abode off the coast of Australia. With no power, water, or sealed roads on the site, the only option was to prefabricate the structure off-site and deliver it in five parts across Victoria's Westernport Bay. The steel and Austrialian hardwood-clad home is completely self sustaining, running off solar power, rainwater harvesting, wood heating, and a worm farm sewage treatment system. In the middle of the exterior, a cutout creates a large courtyard to take in the isolated setting, while its elevated foundation allows for undisrupted views of the adjacent sea.
