Green living in the city.
This Queenslander-inspired contemporary home is situated in Bulimba, Brisbane, and aims to encourage interaction and connection. The main living space of this building is located in a central void, which promotes engagement and activity within this space, whilst the external public spaces of the building- such as the pool and casual sitting spaces- create casual interaction with the street through placement and visibility. A larger urban picture is also created, by connecting the block’s ‘green strip’ to a substantial green planting zone and “back”-yard within the development. The long, north facing building and simple form also takes advantage of the best solar aspects for the site, whilst providing dual sun and rain protection. Ultimately, this house was created as a place for sharing and connecting, and this key concept has been captured in the design of both internal and external spaces.
