Australia is a hot place to live. However in the Snowies, it does get cold and can be a temperate climate as well. As a modern abode hub, this means that there will be many uses for this structure. This includes but is not limited to, enabling different modes of transportation, being able to produce food, having the ability to join to a larger community of rural abodes if needed, and be a total part of nature. Residential, yet for the adaptive modern purpose. A demonstration of new technologies and learning that promote a higher quality of living is a plus.

    What does ” enabling different modes of transportation” mean? The structure should be transportable?
    Also does the basement need to be an underground one?

    • ionth

      This means that the abode hub should work well with transport, not be transportable. The basement should be below the first ground floor.

        does that mean accomadate cars? like a garage related space/covering? if people visit shouldn’t there be more space for cars to accomadate the people? or do you mean walk ways/paths as transport
