Integrating nature and design, Archiblox brings the outdoors in with Tasmanian Oak floors

Imagine waking up every morning surrounded by a scene of minimal, natural serenity. As you blink open your eyes taking in the first glimpses of the day, you’re enveloped by a subtle glow as the rising sun reflects on the warm Tasmanian Oak timber floors throughout the space. Looking around the intentionally minimal but thoughtfully designed bedroom, touches of natural materials are everywhere, from the inviting leather armchair in the corner to the cool grey stone peeking out from the bathroom- all touches that you’ve helped handpick from a sustainable source. The inherent purity of your home’s surroundings creates a sense of peace and calm as you ease into your day. While this may sound like a distant dream for many future home owners, there’s one design firm that is bringing this sustainable and beautiful architectural dream into reality for Australian’s, one prefabricated modular home at a time.
