Earthly African Abodes
The Elmo Swart Architects 'Wright Conversion' abode was built off of a small cottage that had three bedrooms. The architects at Elmo Swart Architects added another bedroom, entertainment area, art gallery and a whole lot of other architectural touches to the space. This South African sanctuary has a great use of raw materials and refined lines -- a must-see for eco-lovers everywhere!

Designs that help consumers get in touch with their nature-loving sides will continue to be favored over those that don't.
