North Avoca Studio

The North Avoca Studio pretty much defies the odds of architecture, it sits cantilevered on a hill, seeming to float above greenery and ocean views. Located in Sydney, Australia, the extremely unique house is a multi-purpose space where the owners can comfortably work, relax, meditate and entertain. Designed by architect Matt Thitchener, the 650-square-foot cube home was sustainably built and was constructed in the middle of difficult geotechnical conditions, affixed to the side of a hill that overlooks the Pacific Ocean. The roof is covered in solar panels, which provide 100% of its energy, and it is also equipped with a rain harvesting system that is used to irrigate the garden planted under the structure.
