The design of the Thorn Street House in Ipswich, Queensland was primarily driven by a desire to produce an energy efficient home with a low ecological impact. The living spaces are positioned to maximize the site’s northern orientation and city views. Sprawling branches from an old mango tree form a natural canopy over the deck as well as providing natural shade, light filtration and privacy screening to the kitchen area.
