This sustainable architecture building actually is a prefab construction. The living and sleeping pods,  along with a bath house were built in Brisbane. This will minimize the site disturbances along the construction period. There are outdoor space and separated indoor pavilions to provide privacy for the inhabitants. The decks and the parabolic roofed structure connect the various pods through a large central outdoor living and dining area.

Some sustainable building materials are used. Materials from nature are dominated, such as Natural oiled timbers. Low finished  materials can provide a healthier environment. Some sustainable features, such as rainwater catchment system, solar panels for heating water, etc provide high energy efficiency.  Passive design was also adopted.
