  • 20 Currimundi Rd first floor extension
    20 Currimundi Rd
First floor addition to a 1983 steel framed Logan home.  To maintain continuity with the place, the original was “lightly touched” by a new first floor.  Full advantage was taken of the northerly exposure towards the lake, with midday sun admitted during winter but excluded in summer due to fine tuned eaves overhang & sunshading.

At the completion of the Design Development stage, a walk through or fly-by is shown to give you a full visualisation of the entire building. ArchiCad can model sun path diagrams so that summer shading and winter sun penetration can be optimised.


 


  • Buderim Extension
    Buderim Extension

This 1970's vintage brick home in Buderim was altered and extended with dramatic effect. Translucent walls on the south (street) side admit natural light without contributing to heat loads. Curved battening provides a durable surface, and together with the fibreglass create an unusual play of light.

 

  • Sea & Sky

Sea & Sky units

Medium density housing needs better acceptance if we hope to preserve areas of natural environment.  The Sea &   Sky Units at Golden Beach use fibro cladding with a texture finishes. this allows use of colour and minimises maintenance.  Sun control is carefully considered.  The style is reminiscent of the 50s and 60s beach houses. The Project won the Sunshine Coast

Housing Industry Association's (HIA) Energy Efficiency Award for 2000

  • Trentham
    "Trentham"

Conservation and change of use for 7 Wilson Ave, Dicky Beach, Caloundra. The original  house had been built in 1939 for rental accommodation, and has some local significance in that it is one of the originals in that area. It was also important in it's contribution to the character of the streetscape, and in it's ability to demonstrate the evolution of the post WW2 beach houses.
