A lawn terrace and show room to the street.
Located on Latrobe Terrace in Brisbane this project began as the refurbishment of a traditional timber house for use as an office space; subsequent expansion however brought about the brief for a professional display room to be built below.
The site with a strong and visible presence on one of Brisbane's major ridge roads, presented further potential though and the design grew to encompass the concept of creating a showcase to the street frontage.
A raised grass terrace addresses the street and extends the use of the display room, to include both organised and passive social engagement, while operable glazing allows occupants to blur the line of internal/ external space.
