Industrial, Mid-Century Modern Home Designed to Capture Prevailing Breezes


This industrial, mid-century modern inspired home was designed by Tempus Design Studio for a family to capture the rural views in Mackay.

Intending not to dominate the landscape, the ‘Arcadian Abode’ delicately sits on a gentle sloping hill on the large rural block. Design features include raked ceilings, custom cabinetry and a feature industrial-look angled wall.

The rear of the home sits predominantly facing north east, capturing the early morning sun whilst the entertaining deck is left fully shaded during the afternoon.

The lineal design allows for the capture of prevailing breezes, while large openings and Breezway Louvre Windows allow easy regulation and protection during rainy weather.

This project won the BDAQ Regional Design Awards 2019 – New Houses $300,001 – $500,000 Construction Cost.
