Project

Townhouse Development

Pfeiffer Place, Cairns

 

Details:

JB’s brief included instructions to:

  • Design a triplex (three townhouses) to blend into the urban environment
  • Design a structure to best suit the natural fall of the land
  • Triplex design to consist of three x bedrooms and two x bathroom units
  • Each unit design to accommodation a single garage plus an open carport

The constrained sloping site presented an overall design challenge, particularly for vehicle access as the site has a 3-metre even fall to the rear of the block and this feature demanded a design that would allow a structure to step evenly down the site.

JB’s contemporary design encourages the townhouse complex to quietly travel down the slope, in such a way that the complex disappears from view at street level.

The angled building design element, enables a modern-style-construction arrangement to work easily with the minimum requirements for vehicle access with turning, allowing drivers to leave the site in forward gear.

The overall design establishes private, covered outdoor living spaces, that provide additional shading to ground floor living areas.

Project

Residence

Palm Cove, Cairns

 

Details:

Located in beautiful Palm Cove, our clients wished-for a hill-side house that maximises soft, summer breezes and year-round spectacular views. They asked for a contemporary, idiosyncratic, functional home-design; a bespoke residence.

The clients summarised their personal wish list as:

  • separate, private bedrooms / retreat areas
  • four-car garage
  • two-car covered areas for visitor parking
  • wet-edge pool
  • indoor / outdoor bathrooms.

The carefully designed floorplan responds well to the tiered building envelope. Movement between each room is seamless. This Palm Cove home is a delightful series of interlinked spaces; each with its own purpose, reflecting the clients’ unique vision.

Framed horizons establish connections between each dedicated area; demonstrating the floor plan is fluid, creating interesting and relaxed living intervals. The smooth flow of structure, texture and modern materials journey through the design, mixing delight and surprise with their combined effect.

The master bedroom boasts an indoor/outdoor ensuite with amazing views and planted privacy. A wonderful way to get wet!
