Project: Stamp House
Architect: Charles Wright Architects
Location: Queensland, Australia
Located in the environmentally sensitive FNQ Beachfront Rainforest in Queensland, this futuristic residence is entirely carbon neutral. Making the most of the site's amenities and resources, the project reintroduces the surrounding native wetland environment by situating the home over an engineered water ecosystem, a collaborative effort between national parks, environmental agencies, and state and local government. With solar panels covering the roof, the use of cantilevers to mitigate the impact from potential flooding, and a structure that can withstand cyclones, the Stamp House is a striking marriage of refined design with environmental awareness.
