The Bridge House was designed to emulate "living amongst the trees in an almost untouched beautiful setting".

Even though this was completed a while back, architect Max Ptitchard’s Bridge House is well worth a mention.  Perched on top of a rocky bank, across a ‘Billabong’ creek, the Bridge House was designed to emulate “living amongst the trees in an almost untouched beautiful setting”.  Surrounded by River Red Gums and Wattle trees, the Adelaide based bridge-like design makes do without air-conditioning using a solar hot water system, double-glazed windows and a wood combustion heater.  Wherever possible, all materials were sourced from local sustainable manufacturers, with the structure costing a tiny AU$220,000.
