'M3 Architecture' recently completed a rural rainforest retreat called the 'Cape Tribulation House.' While off-the-grid living isn't for everyone, this home demonstrates how consumers can disconnect from the urban environment without sacrificing modern comforts.

The Cape Tribulation House is a cozy rural retreat located in Australia's Daintree Rainforest. The home is camouflaged with mirrored glass and dark plastic cladding, which helps it blend into the natural landscape. To further embrace the natural setting, the home features a partially open design that blends the indoor and outdoor spaces. Of course, the home's rural location necessitates a source of renewable power, which the architects solved by installing solar panels on the roof of the home.

The seamless design and energy efficient features demonstrate how consumers can negotiate comfortable off-the-grid living in the modern day.
