The thought of an expansion project does not do the Elmo Swart Architects 'Wright Conversion' house justice. This abode, situated in Durban, South Africa, is a refined eco-lover's dream.

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!Photo Credits: dornob, designboom

Implications - As the environmental movement expands globally, more and more architectural designs are favoring raw natural materials and designs that allow users to be closer to nature. Designs that help consumers get in touch with their nature-loving sides will continue to be favored over those that don't.
