Project

Cairns Kangarooms

Lumley Street, Cairns

 

Details:

The client’s brief was to design a 45-bed, student accommodation facility in a Character Precinct.

One design challenge was to blend the new development in with the Character Precinct and existing surrounding buildings. The design retained the building-style and effect, to the area and blends perfectly with neighbouring properties.

The new and renovated buildings were given design-appropriate embellishments to match the Character of Lumley Street.

The building design achieved an 8.8 Energy Star Rating.

Modern materials were used for easy maintenance and cleaning, whilst retaining the traditional Queenslander-style.

Each unit is well lit, well ventilated and provides enough privacy for the occupants to embark on serious study or enjoy a well-earned rest with friends. The living spaces are a good design mix of functionality and cosiness.

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!
