2 New homes
These two new modern homes on Russell Terrace in Indooroopilly are positioned on a sloping block with great views over the mountains and tree tops to the south. The block is unique as it backs onto a nature reserve full of natural bushland and established trees. There are many restrictions on the site including tree preservation, biodiversity, bush fire and rear easements, so the design had to take all of these into consideration.
Despite this, both houses still manage 4 large bedrooms, 2 living rooms, double garages and large open plan living. The rear of the houses feature double height alfresco areas to maximise the views from the open plan living & alfresco area on the ground level, and the master bedroom & ensuite on the upper level.
The front boundary is on an angle, so this was emphasised in the facade design by having window hoods and cladding following this angle giving a unique look to the otherwise minimalist modern look. The houses were designed to look different, but ustilise the same materials and similar scale so that they compliment eachother.
Due to start construction early 2020.
