Kauri House

A coastal lifestyle for a family of four in Ashgrove, Brisbane


Located in the suburb of Ashgrove, this Queensland house serves as a family home for four who came to us with the hope of creating an environment that could give them a coastal lifestyle within inner Brisbane. The project involved extensive internal renovations however the prevailing objective was to create practical and spacious outdoor living space. 

A shallow backyard provided quite the challenge. In order to exploit the available space as much as possible we set up movement through and views across the space in a diagonal gesture that connects a new pavilion both physically and visually to a lower deck and stairwell from indoor spaces above.
