Crosson Clarke Carnachan Architects demonstrate with this vibrant and sustainable residence that they can effectively juggle appearance, the environment and safety into one consummate architectural whole. The house is a marvel crossroads between the three concerns and sits over a meter above the ground in order to protect it from major flooding.

In addition to working to prevent the house from being dramatically impacted by natural disasters, Crosson Clarke Carnachan Architects also outfitted the house to make a similarly light impact on its surroundings. With a solar-powered water heating system and a photovoltaic power generator, the residence is a positive example of solid ecotecture.
