Located solid futuristic house design in Australia
The Australian company of Charles Wright architects used a mixture of finished parts and place concrete, to build a House that can stand up to the strongest cyclones in the Northern State of Queensland.

The rain forest is vulnerable to tropical cyclones is at the upper end of the meteorological scales. The chunky cantilevered volumes are not only strong enough to withstand these cyclones, but to prevent the ingress of water while accompanying floods.

The architects Charles Wright designed the building so that provide it himself and works completely independent of the mains. The solar panels on the roof generate electricity while a 250,000 litre water system allows the residents benefits from rain water and grey water recycling technologies.
The objective “, was not simply to produce a technical result”, explained the architect, “but creating a building that uses the natural amenities in the most part and again introduces the surrounding native wetland area environment.”
The House provides a climate-neutral solution for an ecologically sensitive site on the edge of the FNQ Beach rain forest
The building is named stamp House and has an embellished exterior that is made with a grid of circular depressions that go beyond the walls and the roof.
The entrance to the building is located on the top floor
The entrance to the building is achieved through a transition – a long bridge over the water -. Inside, a large main lounge offers different seating areas, has still a kitchen, a dining room and a Fitness Studio. The bedrooms are located in the wings.
The concrete has been developed and isolated the built-in paneled sunroof, to ensure a steady cooler and more comfortable annual ambient temperature

Stamp HouseCWA was addressed by the project client, a climate-neutral solution for an ecologically sensitive site on the edge of the FNQ Beach to deliver rain forest. The goal was not just to produce a technical result, but to erect a building that uses the natural amenities in the most part. The building has a constructed water ecosystem, which was the result of the long collaboration with national parks, environmental agencies, State and local government.
The design uses a massive boom, about the effects of possible flooding and “King tide” to mitigate flood cyclone activity. The project was developed to withstand solid and intense hurricanes.
the design is formed in an innovative combination of prefabricated concrete on the square
