The (w)right House is four bedroom contemporary home designed by Charles Wright just moments from the beach in cosmopolitan Port Douglas. It 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. The roof cavity is double insulated and separately vented utilising venturi effect – eleiminating heat gain from roof penetration. The house has indoor and outdoor dining places with open plan kitchen and gas BBQ relatively. The living room has an LCD widescreen TV/DVD/CD, Cable TV, WiFi and surround sound entertainment system. The house is a great retreat near the beach to spent holidays.

This house was designed by Tony Owen NDM to capture the spirit of Sydney's Bondi Beach in a home which both beach house and urban style dwelling. The line of the wave is the underlying element which runs through the house. It forms an entry wing over the garage at the south and rises to give greater height to the living room at the north end. Kitchen, dining and living areas are combined and lead out to the garden. The centrepiece of the area is a built-in, cantilevered polished concrete workbench in the shape of a moulded seven. High windows run the length of one wall, while a low, glassed wall on the other side looks out on an elegant pool. Despite plenty of glass, the neighbouring houses are not visible. Because glass is everywhere in the house it isn't surprise that the owner also owns glass supply business.
