Homes as sculptures are far and few between, and built with a stamped concrete facade are even fewer. Charles Wright Architects has been known for statement forward buildings, and the Stamp House is one of those residences.
Located in Queensland, Australia, this space sits atop a body of water and is accessed by a floating bridge in a man made wetland environment that once was in this area just at the rainforest’s edge. The manmade marsh type setting was a part of a larger plan to help create not only a beautiful home, but one that helped get the residence closer to being “off the grid.” The entire roof is solar paneled, and also incorporates grey water recycling among many other sustainable techniques.
