The city grows and rejuvenates and this was the third time this land was improved; first farmland, then a typical Queenslander, the timber and tin vernacular of Brisbane, and now three houses. But links to the past are still evident.

 

The project is driven by an underlying concept to celebrate this journey `from old to new’. The existing timber house was renovated, maintaining its authenticity and historic charm. Two new houses were added, which make a conceptual bridge to modernity in their architectural expression. Their use of building forms and articulation, materials and colour bring to life the concept `from old to new’.

 

Thank you to our client for their trust and courage. It was a pleasure to work on this project and I believe it did turn out a bit special.
