This strikingly modern abode celebrates the best aspects of contemporary living.
The inclusion of an upper-level swimming pool is a particular highlight of the design, which elegantly wraps around the internal living areas, providing water views from multiple aspects.
The main living spaces have also been carefully crafted to provide optimal views of the nearby Brisbane River and Kangaroo Point. The views are further enhanced through the inclusion of an oversized deck, which not only faces the stunning surrounds, but also provides ample room for outdoor living and entertaining.
Providing easy access to the ground-level outside spaces was imperative for the homeowners, who have a growing family to consider. To facilitate access to all levels of the abode, a convenient three-storey lift was also included.
The home has achieved a 6-star energy rating through the inclusion of solar panels and underground storage tanks, which recycle stormwater for the swimming pool and grey water requirements.
Utilising a passive environmental design, the home encourages natural heating and cooling solutions. In particular, the oversized, shaded entertaining deck provides much needed protection from the harsh, western summer sun.
Automated privacy screens were also installed along the home’s façade, which provide crucial shade during peak periods and added privacy in the main bedroom and accompanying en suite.
Likewise, the use of LED lighting throughout the house is a simple and effective energy-saving feature, while the installation of a lightwell at the rear of the property allows plenty of natural light to enter the rear bedrooms and utility areas
