A steep inner city property with an old building past it’s used by date was the starting point.
A smaller smart design solution was needed, working with the existing site conditions.
The owners brief to allow most areas of the home to capture the magnificent Brisbane city views was the main focus of design. The living areas and master on the upper level being almost a self contained apartment and a further 2 bedrooms and living areas and wet bar down makes the home truly adaptable.
Re-entrant outdoor areas on both levels allow for taking in the views no matter the weather conditions and gives control on those inclement or windy days.
Once the demolition of the existing home was done, care to preserve the existing but well maintained retaining walls helped manage the project budget.
