One of the best ways to build a dwelling that might blend into its environment is to use materials that come from its very site. The rustic Trunk House by Paul Morgan Architects is assembled of such components, including polished planks of beautifully milled wood as well as found segments of broken Y-shaped branches.

In addition to producing an enchanting aesthetic appeal, the striking bifurcated boughs actually aid slightly in supporting the structure of the wide-brim slanted roof. Given that these gorgeous organic artifacts tend now to be left as ground fuel or turned into wood chips, it's wonderful to see how the stringybark trees are showcased on the perimeter of this bushland Australian abode. Inside and out, Trunk House by Paul Morgan Architects is a handsome homage to its timber-rich setting.
