Sci-Fi Looking Residence With Bridge Access in Australia
By Freshome.com on Jun 21, 2013
Our idea of a comfy home doesn't generally resemble a massive space-ship -- and that is exactly why this star-shaped contemporary residence developed by Charles Wright Architects on the edge of the FNQ beachfront rainforest in Australia made such an impression. According to the architects, the aim of the project was to produce a building which made the most of the site's natural amenities and incorporated the surrounding native wetland environment. The building sits atop its own reflection, on an engineered water ecosystem which was the result of lengthy liaison & collaboration with National Parks, environmental agencies, state and local government.
The cantilevered shape of the Stamp House (initially discovered by Freshome on Arch Daily) is a creative method of mitigating impact from potential flooding. The entire building was constructed by using a combination of in-situ and precast concrete. Solar panels on the roof provide a comfortable temperature all year long.
