Designer Homes Brisbane


The pre-war dwelling has all the character of that irreplaceable old world charm. DesignBuild were given the task of keeping this charm alive whilst taking advantage of the spectacular city views. The clients were after a space that was perfect for entertaining in their down time.

To create the social areas that this couple desired, their living space was expanded to create more bedrooms, a study and a rumpus room. The house was also raised to make the most of the spectacular city views and address the parking issues that came with having a steep driveway from a raised property.

The design takes advantage of city views throughout, with feature windows and open plan living. The house is adjacent to the swimming pool, creating a seamless outdoor and indoor entertainment area. DesignBuild utilised materials that matched the existing residence, creating consistency and authenticity throughout the home.

This project took sixteen months to complete, with design and documentation for the house appearing as the most ambitious of exercises. Problem solving of architectural and engineering problems that we encountered made for a successful outcome.
