The house in Australia hugs the rainforest

Created to have joyful spaces and enrich everyday life, the residence is surrounded by greenery in all environments.

Being in the middle of the woods and, at the same time, with great comfort, is the desire of an increasing number of people. And architecture has found creative ways to guide this rapprochement between people and nature.

In the middle of the woods, the house appears with curved lines, a large planter and glass sheets through which you can see part of the living room: a pink sofa.

An example of this is the Planchonella House in North Queensland, Australia, designed and built by Jesse Bennett Studio.


The idea of ​​the house is to offer joyful spaces, inspire residents and enrich everyday life through close and constant contact with the rainforest, embraced by the construction.


The 280 m² residence features organic and playful lines in the concrete profiles, which appear in a mirror image on the floors and flat roof.

Living room and TV with pink sofa and glass sheets that allow a view of the woods.

Minimal walls and columns allow for unobstructed views and shared landscaping moments throughout the home.

Integrated living and dining room with wooden shelves.

This interaction and dialogue between inside and outside creates space for a daily life completely surrounded by the forest.

Wardrobe with niches for clothes and accessories, a fluffy white carpet and an organically designed bench in light pink.  The glass wall overlooks the forest.

The project also includes a patio, which provides sun, light, ventilation, joy, activity, visual stimulation and entertainment, like an oasis in the midst of greenery.
