Partially camouflages in a lovely natural setting, Under the Moonlight house is a project developed by Giovanni D’Ambrosio and located in Mount Hotham, Australia. The shape of the residence is highly modern, yet its inspiration derives from its local historical background, animated by cowboys and country-men. An interesting mix of stone, glass, wood and metal was used to create a home that would shelter the owners, during summer and winter. According to the architects, “Under the Moonligh House has been designed with care in order to prevent damage to local vegetation and trees. Roof is made out of insulated metal and accomplishes with functionality of any climate“. But the use of sustainable materials in this case did not come with any compromises in aesthetics. Inside and out, this mountain crib looks original and welcoming. which is why we believe you will find it inspirational.
