ArchitectureandDesign reports from Inverloch, Victoria, on Australia’s rocky southeast coast, Archiblox has created a modern, sustainable modular home that maximizes sea views to the south while minimizing the effects of the cold winds that also come from that direction. Electric awning windows at the top of the entryway stairs act as a cooling tower in the summer, and other windows allow for cross ventilation. The three-bedroom, two-bath home also features indoor and outdoor dining areas, two living rooms, a study, a kitchen, and two open decks. MHProNews.com has learned a solar-powered water heater adds to its energy efficiency rating.
