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.
The Haddad Residence is set on the slopes of Mount Whitfield. The home is a stunning rainforest eyrie with views across Cairns to Trinity Inlet and the Coral Sea. The design philosophy was to create the feel of a single storey home grounded in the earth on a steep and challenging hill site.
