The suburb of Paddington - Brisbane, is renowned for its slopping terrain.
When we were presented with the opportunity to create a home on Rockbourne Terrace, we were delighted.
Our site has two primary triggers.
Many of our houses are informed by circulating around one core idea, this scheme is no different.
Our first design move was to try and think about how we could respond to the existing contours.
Next, we punctuated the roof to create three courtyards, all of which serve different purposes.
The westernmost courtyard acts as a private outdoor retreat that is directly linked to the Master Bedroom.
The central court is the largest of the three due to the integration of a circular plunge pool and a sunbaking deck, also totally private.
The lowest is linked to the open-plan public spaces and integrates an outdoor fireplace.
Enjoy the plans and images.
