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.
The sloping site looks out over a regenerated silver and lead mine to the south – a bush setting in suburban Brisbane. To accommodate a growing family, the brief adds additional living space and bedrooms to the 3 bedroom high set Queenslander house.
