Palissandro, Captures Light Breezes and Views

Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

Palissandro is a contemporary two-storey house in New Farm. The design creatively addresses the constraints of the character code, acknowledging its historical context while still achieving a progressive outcome.

The building was conceived as a pure form, chiselled out to reveal apertures and fenestrations which capture light, breezes and views. Altair Louvre Windows help capture this natural light, fresh air and scenic views by using clear glass blades.

The striking rosewood facade is one of the defining features of this project, providing an ever changing play of dappled light and shade.
