It’s difficult to imagine this house in its original “spec home” format – Shaun Lockyer Architects have certainly done an amazing job dramatically altering and extending the home in a way more fitting to the fantastic park-side location in inner city Brisbane. The lifestyle areas of the house were re-designed so that the kitchen, living and dining areas optimise the indoor/outdoor living experience. The second, and perhaps more dramatic change was the addition of the ‘Park Room’ over the existing living areas, providing a subtropical indoor/outdoor living area. This addition allowed natural light to penetrate deep into the lower floor living spaces and created a sense of drama by introduced a number of voids. The new home was fitted with bespoke timber joinery, marble accents and a beautifully landscaped perimeter to heighten the enjoyment and experience of the new spaces. Go ahead and be amazed!
