2016 CQ Regional Building Designers Association of Queensland Winner!!! Residential Design – New Houses up to $500,000 Construction Cost.
The client is one of the leading award winning builders of quality homes in the Gladstone area, with a reputation for quality & innovative building techniques.
This design was for one of their display homes and also part of the builder’s standard range of plans. As such, a large requirement for this design was its need to be adaptable for different locations. This stunning European-designed home exhibits the wow factor whilst still appealing to first home buyers, families and retired couples. It has been designed for modern, easy and enjoyable living.
This home was designed to feature what could be achieved on a smaller block with a reduced floor area. Through clever design we were still able to achieve a modern, affordable home with 4 bedrooms, 2 livings areas, double garage and large kitchen.
The use of exquisite design elements created a large open air feel to the home. Such design elements included raked ceilings, clerestory windows, large bi-fold glass doors and the use of strategically placed windows throughout the home. The stand out feature is the glass bi-fold windows locking directly into the wide kitchen bench and opening onto the outdoor living area. This allows the entire dining/kitchen area to be used for the largest of entertaining nights.
The living and dining areas are all zoned around the kitchen creating a large open area for the family to enjoy. The living dining extends out onto the spacious and relaxed BBQ area through large bi-fold doors.
An exceptional design that definitely ticks all the boxes for a family home – within a small carbon footprint
