Nature-Inspired Eco House


This nature-inspired eco-house is composed with style, vintage elements and reclaimed materials that exude contemporary freshness and charm.

This beautiful home, designed with love and care, aiming to be maximally responsible towards nature and sustainability. A place in which hearts and minds are put in. This unique house project in Western Australia is designed and created by its owners – Tanya and Peter with the help of architectural studio Etica Studio.

The housing project combines the re-usage of natural materials – crushed and repurposed rubble to have concrete, reclaimed bricks – including the gorgeous 1960-s breeze blocks that compose the cozy garden. Timber revamped Baltic floorboards from the original Melbourne Town Hall and 1960-s windows, doors and skirting boards; with nice vintage elements discovered by the owners: lamps, chairs, posters and decor elements.

The sustainability and low energy project of the home include solar panels, a solar hot-water system and most importantly a magnificent green roof by Deep Green Landscaping. Apart from this conscious approach towards creating a home, the owners took care, so that atmosphere of this unique house is bright, relaxing and so stylish. Take a look.

The main living premises are sunny, open and very inviting – vintage furniture pieces and personal touches introduce unique character and atmosphere. The rich textures of the natural materials selection adds to that. Whiteness is prevailing, magnifying the natural sunlight and giving freshness to the decor.

The two dark green accents frame the kitchen arrangement – the forest green entrance door saved by a demolition site and the pantry designed by Clara and created as most of the kitchen furniture by Raw Edge Furniture. The row presence of the exposed concrete walls throughout the house is softened by the textural elements and in-depth green details: cool accent in the minimalist bathroom comes from the vintage forest green bathtub, the magnificent focal point of the deep green wall in the living room:, And of course for an eco-home – an abundance of fresh green living plants that make the home a breathing creation.
