This project’s unique, off the grid Eco Cabins are nestled into the hillside of an organic farm on beautiful Mount Cotton in South East Queensland.
The owner of this glorious site is a fifth generation farmer who has delighted in the panoramic view for many years, and has decided to share it.
Their concept is for a series of unique contemporary eco cabins that will sit gently on the site, nestling into the hill above the farm and quietly enjoying the expansive views and abundance of flora and fauna of Redland Bay.
The design and location of each eco cabin has been highly considered to allow for privacy and a sense of isolation without compromising the view, or the comfort and quality of the guests’ experience. The design is conceived as a modular construction to ensure that the site is disturbed as little as possible and to generate some sensible benefit from repetitive elements.
Recently granted approval from Redland Council the project is due to start on site in 2016.
