Any home with superb architecture promises to leave the spectators spell bound and complimenting to it, if the views are nice, its like cherry on the cake. The images in the article dedicated to magnificent Deolali House (that we came up with a few days back) were simply amazing. Isn’t it? Today, we have yet another architecture that is a perfect visual treat. Believe me, checking out its images and reading the description of it, you will be amazed. To begin with let me tell you all that its an architecture that all you Star Wars fans would just love as its a Star Wars-esque home. This reminds me of Darth Vader and R2-D2 Showerheads for Die Hard StarWars Fans we wrote about days back.
Dubbed Stamp House, its a Star Wars-esque home in the Australian bush. The Off-grid living in Queensland at the very first glimpse looks like a spaceship, but its a futuristic property inspired by a stamp.
The house is designed by architect Charles Wright and sits within 73 acres of Queensland’s Wet Tropics World Heritage rainforest near the beach and the Great Barrier Reef.
The living spaces and bedrooms, six of them peel off from its core like petals, while the building’s perforated exterior walls recall stamp sheets. Its a safe and secure off-grid structure that is Carbon Neutral in operation. All energy is renewable, provided by the large photovoltaic array and battery storage, offsetting the use of air-conditioning and LED lighting.
When viewed from the top as in aerial view gives the viewer an impression that its a spaceship. For this reason it is often called Starship Galactica.
The house has been built from concrete and the thermal properties help keep the structure cool in an area where the average temperature is 27 degrees celsius.
The roof area is harvested into a 250,000 litre in-ground water tank integrated with hydraulic systems with solar panels that help generate electricity.
The concrete structure is perfect for the location due to its inherent long life cycle efficiency and material properties to deal with the harsh, corrosive wet tropical environment.
This luxurious eco-chic Star Wars themed architecture doesn’t fail to appeal the spectators. Its images have already left me amazed imagine how would it feel to see the architecture in real. What’s your viewpoint?
