Located in northern Queensland, the Stamp House by Charles Wright Architects boasts a modernist look that seems to defy gravity.

The cantilevered construction hovers over a lake, in a tropical area. While the beach and rain forest views are certainly beautiful, they come at a price -- the area's climate is prone to tropical cyclones. According to Deezen Magazine, "the chunky cantilevered volumes are not only strong enough to withstand these cyclones but also prevent water from getting in during any accompanying floods."

Aside from the weather-withstanding qualities of this home, it is evident that it is nicely integrated into its breathtaking landscape surroundings. The Stamp House by Charles Wright Architects is a marvel in utility and excellence in aesthetic design. Stats for Hovering Indestructible Homes Trending: Older & Average
