Materialicious has quite a few Australian house designs – here are a couple of of them. Given Australia’s geographical location, we’ve come up with a lot of interesting architectural designs making use of traditional building materials like wood or corrugated iron. Above is a rammed earth building.

“Located deep in the bush of New South Wales, Australia, Box House was designed by Nick Murcutt for a couple who requested a simple house to be built on a budget of $50,000 (AUS). They got a 20?x20?x20?, 400sf cube sitting on concrete piers; three sides of the house are clad in 1¼” thick timber and the fourth, north sun-facing side, is entirely of glass, with bi-fold doors on the lower level that open onto a deck.”
