A Light-Filled Home


One of the biggest trends in home design over the past decade is light. Homeowners want as much natural light as they can get in their homes.

Natural light makes spaces feel airier and more cheerful; it also may help those who suffer from seasonal affective disorder. Natural light also can help cut energy bills (less use of electric lights), and use the natural warmth of the sun to help heat the home during cooler weather. And with modern windows, it’s possible to create large expanses of glass with virtually no loss in energy efficiency.

This home in the unlikely location of Wollongong, Australia, is a great example of what light can do for a house. Take a look at this slideshow on for more photos of this spectacular modern home.
