Court House

We were approached by a middle aged couple with young adult children to design a new home for them on a vacant site with access to a secluded beach via a walking track at the end of a court.  The couple are involved in the recycled timber industry and have relocated to the Surfcoast from Melbourne.    The original brief called for a modest timber dwelling with a protected outdoor area away from the strong Southerly breezes and a bridge to enhance the sense of entry. This idea of entry became a prompt for our conceptual framework and through a series of hand drawn sketches the strongest recurring theme was the idea of a central courtyard as an orienting device as well as an arrival point.   In place of the original id...

New Farm House

The existing Queensland weatherboard home, quintessential of its New Farm streetscape, was transformed as a renovation and additions project by Vibe Design Group. The home located just outside of Brisbane had a design approach that focused on the successful integration of old and new. The modern addition respectfully cradles the old, allowing the existing 'Queenslander' to retain its prominence to the street. New spaces are carefully integrated with the existing conditions for seamless functionality and an understated harmony between the two styles. Smaller elements add to great effect. The garage door is hidden amongst the weatherboard cladding while the study roof hovers above the existing pitched roof that completes itself enti... More
