Designed by Eckersley Garden Architecture, nestled amongst large native trees, clean and simple of Garden Architecture. The brief for this garden came from a young active family who love to entertain and didn’t want to spend all of their spare time slaving in the garden. A new pool was also an important inclusion for the fast growing tribe of kids. The result is a contemporary garden which extends the strong lines of the architecture into the garden and then softens them with carefully sited plantings. Material choices are also sympathetic to the neutral tones of the house – muted greys of pebble seeded aggregate and weathered timber all work easily in the space.

Designed by Richard Kirk Architects, Highgate Hill Residence is located on a south facing ravine adjacent to one Brisbane’s oldest ridgeline roads – Dornoch Terraces. The steepness of the rectangular site has resulted in a verdant and mature landscape consisting of a mixture of native and exotics, which created the opportunity to place the house within a rich landscape environment.

Kensington Residence by Nicholas Murray Architects1 Kensington Residence by Nicholas Murray Architects

From Architects : ” An industrial backdrop provides an inspiring location for this refined, full width extension to an existing triple fronted Victorian. The existing house was demolished beyond the front four rooms and a large 15m wide extension spanned nearly the full width of the site. A palm tree placed in the central Castlemaine stone walled courtyard beside a 12m lap pool provokes a sense of oasis and escape from the industrial context. This residence forms part of a larger development that consists of boutique office suites and apartments that were constructed within the grounds of the previous residence and adjoining warehouse. ”
