Located in one of this Brisbane suburb’s most prestigious streets, the site’s existing house has been removed to create a new family home, for this family of four, which responds to the site, the client’s design aspirations and neighbourhood features.
The nature of the 405m2 block, relationship to the adjacent park and proximity of surrounding neighbours were sensitively considered and responded to appropriately by the Happy Haus design team. The arrangement of rooms and living spaces have been informed by the desire for a feeling of space, the ability to see past the immediate area in the main living zones and seamless connections between indoors and outdoors.
A strong emphasis is placed on creating valuable connections to the outdoors through the outdoor areas; a space which blurs the line between internal and external areas. Specifically, there are voids and changes in ceiling heights to create special spatial qualities in specific areas of the home.
Due for completion in early 2019.
