18 Jun Can you achieve an architectural home design with a builder?
Many clients worry that an architectural home design cannot be achieved by working with a design and construct builder. This couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, it is absolutely possible to create a Brisbane house design that draws upon stunning architectural features.
This recently completed property in Clayfield is just one example of this. Construction of this home was the final stage of a sub-division development. The original property was a combination of a pre-war workers cottage and a large post-war extension and the challenge here was to satisfy the strict character code requirements of the pre-war portion of this home, while achieving a new architectural look overall.
As Brisbane’s expert custom home builders, we were called in to look after the sub-division of the property, splitting the block into two and demolishing the post-war extension so the workers cottage would fit on the reduced block. The cottage was then raised and moved onto its new position on the smaller site.
For the second newly created lot it was decided that we would design and construct a generous and contemporary family home as there is a strong market demand for family homes in the area. Given there was no contracted end user, a Brisbane house design that would appeal to multiple owner/occupier scenarios and could be built to a set budget was selected.
The completed custom home is a contemporary and modern space with bold aesthetics and a value engineered structure designed to mitigate costs. With the focus on achieving a wide market appeal, the facade was designed and built cleverly with attractive geometric shapes and forms, coupled with the use of external cladding materials, feature elements and colours, which give the home a breathtaking street appeal.
This stunning Brisbane house design has been created to suit the subtropical lifestyle of the city. It incorporates expansive living, yet is low maintenance, making it ideal for entertaining. The home has been built to suit the prospective owners needs and lifestyle both now and into the future, with the possibility of repurposing rooms if necessary.
The most striking element of the home is the clever layout and feeling of spaciousness achieved, despite being a small block (only 305m2). The home incorporates a casual open-plan kitchen and a large living and dining area that flow onto a covered patio. With four spacious bedrooms, complete with built-in robes, and an oversized home office, it has the flexibility to support the modern family. There is also a separate sitting room, substantial family bathroom, stylised powder room and large laundry, as well as a double car garage.
As with all of our homes, we incorporated the highest level of workmanship and attention to detail into this Brisbane custom home to create a luxury, stylish and elegant finished home.
Our team was tasked to look after this stunning Brisbane custom home from concept to completion. This project is a fine example of the kind of architecturally-designed custom home you can achieve with a builder. Our expert residential architects worked closely with our custom home building team to ensure we delivered on a functional and stylish space that capitalised on space perfectly and was to budget.
A big thanks to all the consultants and authorities who were sourced, engaged and managed throughout this project.
