One architect designed a completely stunning elevated home that takes advantage of beautiful scenery while keeping environmental consciousness in mind.

The 'Invermay House' by Moloney Architects uses minimalist and modern design techniques to create a home that is both visually stunning and functionally efficient. The elevated home is designed for a family of six -- a fact that made its architect create an open space on its main floor to promote a sense of connection between inhabitants. The home gazes over the nearby city of Ballart, using open windows and operable skylights to create ventilation.

Outdoors, the project's innovation lies in the elevation by reducing the home's effect on the nearby environment. The simple home uses concrete blocks and timber to create a rugged visual landscape without sacrificing sustainability.
