Alexandra House involved the conversion of a turn of the century boarding house and pathology lab into a functional family home. The design incorporates a ground floor response to the site with large open plan areas and zoning to support a growing family.

The upper floor is predominately the recalibration of the original Queenslander, altered to suit the needs of a family while retaining the character of the home. Lush gardens and a warm, rich palette of materials round off a special home that balances the needs of both history and a sustainable re-use of the previously un-loved home.

Exquisitely executed by a passionate team of builders and sub-contractors and supported by informed and invested clients, the house reflects a wonderfully collaborative outcome.

This gently sloped 1.75 acre lot in Atherton provided a rare opportunity to create a contemporary courtyard house that also has commanding views of the surrounding hills. The pleasantly varied massing and simple wood siding gives this house the look and feel of a structure that has evolved over time, while remaining contemporary and fresh.
