Wirra Willa Pavilion

The stunning Wirra Willa Pavilion designed by Matthew Woodward Architecture is the perfect weekend retreat. Located in Somersby, NSW, Australia, on an 80-acre property, the tiny house is only 72 square meters (775 sq.ft) in size, and weightlessly cantilevers over the adjacent natural lily pond, creating a scene straight from a Monet painting, and giving guests the sensation of walking on water. Although small, there is still room for sleeping, a bathroom, kitchen and storage space. There is also a small pool under the floor in the living room.
