Open and Light Three-Storey Home


The Queenscliff 2 project involved the demolition of a post war single storey masonry dwelling, replacing it with an open and light three-storey home, taking better advantage of the north aspect and sweeping views.

The focus for Hobbs Jamieson Architecture concentrated on working with the significant slope on the site to create a dwelling that improved access to the street and provided generous spaces that took advantage of the aspect, employing a varied natural palette of materials and colours.

The result is a home that doesn’t forget to address its street frontage, rests comfortably within the context and manages its scale through interlocking volumes and complimentary material use.

Breezway Louvre Windows have been strategically placed throughout the home to help ventilate living areas while allowing outdoor views to be maintained. Breezway Louvres can also be easily screened so occupants can live comfortably at any time of the day or night without the worry of insects or bugs entering the home.

“Right from the early stages we were happy with our decision. The further we got into our project the more comfortable I became in trusting Adam’s advice on just about everything.” Paul Houston, Homeowner.
