This is Planchonella House which is a beautiful glass home nestled amongst a rain forrest in Cairns. It belongs to architect and builder Jesse Bennett and his wife, interior designer Anne-Marie Campagnolo.
Imagine waking up surrounded by this amazing view, it’s like the world’s prettiest treehouse. Shane you’ve always wanted to build a treehouse, can it look like this please. A thank you.
– The desire to live simply within the landscape formed the basis of the concept employed at Planchonella House. Perched on a hill surrounded by rainforest, a layout was developed that would enable maximum connection to the surroundings without obstruction. Minimal barriers were employed not only for reasons of capturing the landscape, framing views, transparency and connection, but also to assist in creating light-filled, well ventilated spaces. High concrete ceilings aid thermal design and create large generous internal volumes.
