I think anyone would want a Peregian Beach House by Middap Architects for their dream vacation home. I absolutely love this Queensland, Australia house from top to bottom.
Some of the awesome features of the Peregian Beach House by Middap Architects include a thermal mass that allows the house to cool or warm along with the natural climate and a solar hot water system. See the links for more of this home's innovative features.
Implications - Architecture, eager to incorporate developing technologies into building design, has recently turned toward more "futuristic" looks. Although the housing market is just recovering, the arena is ripe for the introduction of new, cheaper, more utilitarian homes to replace the more expensive, traditionally built structures that are being foreclosed on.
