Architecture, Interiors, Urban design, Environmental Design is the main objective from a contemporary design practice “Charles Wright Architects” with their offices located in Melbourne, Victoria and Port Douglas, Queensland, Australia. One of their interesting architectural project you can find is this beautiful holiday house project “The Beachfront Mirage Estate” for an extended family located in Port Douglas, Australia.
The Beachfront Mirage Estate is a study in “helicoidal minimal surface geometry”, attributed to the same technique that the Wright Brothers of Kitty Hawk used in building their flying machines. Architect Charles Wright employed concepts familiar to many artists and photographers, specifically the diving proportion, the golden rectangle and golden spiral.
This four bedroom contemporary home has environmentally sustainable design with vaulted ceilings and the presence of water from every angle of the house. To cool the tropical air, the house has one store and enveloped by water. The structure is an innovative combination of concrete, steel and un-conventional core-filled clay brick masonry. A flowing metal structure shades the lap pool with salt water, and a wooden deck wraps around the house conjuring up the sense of being at sea.
