The Life House is a home located in Llanbister that creatively is designed to blend into the landscape with a black exterior that mirrors the dark colors of the vegetation and natural neutral color palette of the surroundings. Despite the darken exterior, the interior of the home is contrastingly decorated in light white hues to create a juxtaposition between the two.

While many house designs focus on making the abode stand out with a striking appearance, the Life House goes against the grain with an exterior that mirrors the setting. This allows the home to blend into the background with a structure made from dark colors such as handmade bricks, timber wood and moor grass. Contrastingly, the interior of the home features a calm white color palette that brings brightness and light into the space.
