    Looks great but unfortunately not a design for Queensland’s tropical climate. Wall shade and air flow are what
    is not evident here.

    These pictures almost look like 3d renderings and are not the real thing. There is a lot of detail, so its hard to tell, but interesting design. There are no provisions for heat or air, so these types of structures can be very simple in a temperate location like that. No insulation or maybe radiant floor heating could suffice, but can’t tell from these shots. The metal legs seem undersized and some appear bent or angled in the first shot for example. Would be interesting to see more construction details of this building to know if it was modular panelized construction or custom.

    How many square feet is the Black Cedar Box ?

    Very nice, clean looking and low maintenance. I would have put the kitchen cabinets to the ceiling, though; no dust catching that way.

    This might be fine for Mezzo or South America, but one, or some, of the exterior walls are only corrugated plastic with no insulation. It couldn’t be used in the dead of winter in Canada or the northern tiers of America. I am guessing that they chose this material because it was cost effective and saves on lighting electricity but this could only be seasonal housing at best in certain areas. Otherwise, it is a very nice build with lots of open space and a wonderful gallery view of Nature from the second floor.

      The ” dead of winter ” in Brisbane seems to be about 50 degrees.

      I think they’ll be fine.

    Nice design but … jalousie windows and corrugated siding? I hope Brisbane doesn’t have the frightful spiders and creepy-crawlies that Australia is rumored as having. Seems like way too many opportunities for them to get in!

    I really don’t see the point of your comment Lisa E. Unless you’re making notes for yourself? Of course there are climates that can support housing that wouldn’t be suitable to Canada or Northern USA.
