This brand new character home in one of Brisbane’s most sought after suburbs, Balmoral, takes advantage of it’s very narrow and steeply sloped sight through clever design and planning.
Because of the sharp slope over the site, the house appears single storey from the street, but is in fact mostly 2 storey.
The client was concerned about this not providing enough street presence, so the facade become especially important. The brief was for a Californian bungalow inspired Queenslander with a lot of added height to make the house appear larger than it is. The tri-gable design was settled upon which gives great deffinition between the garage and entry, and gets it’s extra height from the third central gable. Extra height is added to the entry via a double height ceiling space, achieved through a perpendicular gable and high level glazing.
The house features a large open plan living/dining/kitchen with island bench that opens onto a big deck that has views over Brisbane City skyline. Downstairs features another Rumpus room, 4 bedrooms, study and pool.
