The residence was designed on a very steeply sloping site facing west to magnificent city and river views. The design incorporated multiple levels matching the slope with extensive balconies facing the views with the maximum amount of full width openings. Internally the house is completely open planned with high ceilings and large void areas connecting the internal levels. This consideration enabled the occupants to take advantage of the visual position and retain spaces that accommodated changing lifestyle demands. The emphasis of the design was on modern and contemporary structure with minimalist detailing, focusing on the relationship and harmony of natural and unnatural space. The swimming pools integration into the lower floor of the house and garage meant the building maintained a visual continuity and with landscaped planters surrounding the boarders to the space maintained its privacy.
Designed for beach side living the house built on a corner site, opens out onto public parkland with attention given to the maximum visual amenity of the coastal bush, whilst maintaining privacy to poolside living beside a high traffic road. Full consideration was given to the open plan on both floors and wide balconies facing towards the water with the side street being maintained as the main entrance for both people and cars so that the maximum frontage for balconies, living areas and bedrooms could grace northeast and the coastline. Use of two-storey voids, internal glass partitions open staircase and light coloured internal finishes enhance the visual and physical space of this plan with glass doors folding away to living size balconies.

This house was built on a steeply sloping site that began from the road and subsequently the garage was utilised as the fence boarder, additionally a suspended driveway was implemented from the footpath which enabled a split-level entry. An elevated plunge pool allowed the building to balance itself on the site creating a cascading flow over multiple levels. The internal design incorporated open planning and high-level ceilings with split level rooms that promoted natural light to come into the house at various points. Extensive use was made of folding doors opening out onto large balconies and folding windows from the kitchen to the outdoor dining area to open each connect space. The house is uncompromisingly modern with use of modern materials and finishes with minimalist detailing.
This is modern contemporary residence on an inner suburban block designed in an open plan format utilising maximum openings and glass to an enclosed yard space and swimming pool. The house has been designed with consideration to retaining privacy to the neighbors. The internal/external open relationship is further extended through the house with a structurally maximised two-storey void that flows around the staircase the living spaces are connected through a bridge between the upper floor bedrooms. The kitchen space has a foldaway wall, which then allows the internal space to flow with the external living space. This design encourages one large informal space that is beautifully flexible.
Design for a inner city corner lot, this contemporary home has to relate to the both streetscapes, with the emphasis being on a juxtaposition of portico statement to gate house. The house largely turns its back onto the streets with all of the internal living spaces opening to a resort pool wrapping around an outdoor living pavilion that flows from the internal living spaces. This preserves maximum privacy of indoor and outdoor living spaces from a high profile corner position. The detailing is consistent with a modern minimalist theme and simplicity. The central staircase has been designed as a feature within the living space to add drama to the space both physically and visually.
Located in a traditional federation area of Brisbane the existing dwelling was extensively renovated and added to, including raising the house and completely building in under and extending out to the side of the house. Major extensions towards the rear incorporated a lap pool, which utilised the available space whilst giving care to the liveability and practical utilisation of each area. The renovations and additions closely match the detailing of the original house so that the distinction between new and old was sensitively merged together. Some of the newer detailing included a large glassed landscaped atrium to the centre of the house, bringing natural light into the major living areas and allowing a flow of space to the outside.
These residential architecture additions incorporated building in-under and extending out to the font of the house, which was positioned in a demolition controlled precinct. The focus was to maintain and develop its original federation character and in turn the original federation gables and staircase as presented to the streetscape were considered and amalgamated into the design. Internal detailing was to largely match the original internal character with decorative arches and mouldings implemented to further develop the houses character and distinction.
