Morningside Residence by Kieron Gait Architects is a quiet, respectful and poetic addition to a 1920s Queenslander house. The existing 1920s house is a beautiful house, but highest and divorced from the garden.

The brief for the Jacaranda house was to turn an original 1920’s Ashgrovian house into a family haven, with the flexibility to accommodate the changing needs over the next 20 years.
This playful renovation dramatically transforms a modest cottage into a flexible family home, with the lower kids level also configured as a self-contained flat.
The Tarragindi Steel house is an exemplar for small lot family living. The spacious light filled interiors and dramatic double height spaces defy the constraints of the block size.
This project re-invigorates the life of an existing Queenslander cottage in inner city Paddington. A new extension is carefully considered to mitigate the issues of a steep site and overlooking neighbours, creating platforms and private courtyards that extend the functioning ground plane.
Taringa Treehouse has been designed as a “weekender in the backyard” for a young couple on their suburban lot. Initially briefed as an extension to the original 1900’s Worker’s cottage, the project quickly migrated into the garden.
