Coastal Lifestyle Combined With Traditional House-Sized Units


Christopher Design Group has done a remarkable job with this interesting request from his clients to have a coastal lifestyle combined with two traditional house-sized units.

Breezway Louvres on second floor of Suller street
Kitchen area of house sized unit
Bathroom inside houze sized unit
Breezway Louvres help ventilate kitchen area

Both townhouses enjoy street frontage and relaxing views of a park behind the property along with a small swimming pool and a seamless indoor/outdoor design.

The plan utilises floor-to-ceiling glazing including Breezway Louvre Windows and bi-fold doors to help achieve this seamless integration.

There are three bedrooms on the top floor of each home and the split-level design provides a feeling of spaciousness that is much needed on this narrow site.

The lower level of the units differ slightly with one encompassing a media room and open plan kitchen and living area whilst the other incorporates an all-in-one living space and pantry in the kitchen.

The result of the design allows for very livable, house-sized units that have the capacity to change with the clients over time.

This project has won the following award:

  • Building Designers Association of Queensland (BDAQ) – State Awards 2017 for Multi-Residential Projects up to 6 Dwelling Units
