This Off-Grid Self-Sustaining Home Boasts Beautiful Panoramic Views

Australia, while boasting a population of nearly 25 million, is actually pretty sparsely developed, with most of the populous centered in the country’s major cities. And that makes its countryside the perfect place for anyone looking to build an off-grid getaway, like Ben Callery Architects’ Elemental House.

An hour outside of Melbourne, this structure was built on a hillside surrounded by virtually nothing but beautiful rolling high desert hills. And it takes full advantage of those panoramic views with its 360-degree windows and 10×10-meter footprint. And since the home is so far from civilization, it was also designed with self-sustainability in mind — meaning it can generate its own power, gather and store rainwater, and can even treat its own waste. A brilliant blend of modern architecture, creature comforts, sustainability, and isolation, the Elemental House is a dream getaway if there ever was one.
