Doonan Glasshouse Maximises Cross Flow Ventilation with Breezway Louvre Windows

NOOSA, QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA

This project was Sarah Waller’s own personal, architect’s ‘dream home’ in Doonan, Queensland and was designed around three primary elements: a white concrete slab that appears to be floating, long expanses of full height glazing and a near flat roof. The clean lines, total transparency to the landscape and minimal detail of this design combine to create an architectural home that reflects the houses of the 1950’s Modern Movement, whilst the monochromatic colour scheme of the finishes and interior styling pull the house together, resulting in a chic, modern and flowing family home.

With an extensive architectural background and expertise as a licensed builder, Sarah creatively designed her home inspired by the simplicity and sophistication of mid-century modern architecture.

Walls of glass, including the incorporation of Breezway Altair Louvre Windows, span the length of the home, blurring the distinction between indoor and outdoor spaces. The extensive glazing also allows an abundance of natural light and ventilation to stream through, imbuing warmth and unimpeded views of the verdant surrounds. Sarah Waller states “I love that you have all the comforts of indoors, yet you really feel part of the landscape. We wake up with the sun and experience the subtle changes in weather throughout the day.”

Taking style cues from the Modernist Palm Springs pools popular during the 1950’s, a similar look is evoked with a streamlined resort-style linear pool, offset with a chic cabana furnished with casual pieces ideal for relaxing and soaking up the sweeping views.

This project has won the following awards:

  • 2016 Queensland Bathroom of the Year, HIA Queensland Region Housing Awards
  • Bathroom of the Year, 2016 HIA Sunshine Coast Housing Awards
  • Bathroom over $40,001, 2016 HIA Sunshine Coast Housing Awards
  • Kitchen of the Year, 2016 HIA Sunshine Coast Housing Awards
  • Kitchen over $50,001, 2016 HIA Sunshine Coast Housing Awards

Large Family Home Maximising Beach-Side Views & Ventilation

Large Family Home Maximising Beach-Side Views & Ventilation

MACKAY, NORTH QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA
This large family home designed by Tempus Design Studio was built on a small block on the coastline in North Queensland.

The ‘Sunset Abode’ was designed to capture the beach-side views from all multi levels within the home and for all aspects to flow together seamlessly.

A modern facade was called for with the incorporation of a raised pool. Due to the overall height of the building it was important to create a facade with depth and character. The double height alfresco area and cantilevered elements help soften the facade by providing articulation.

Breezway Louvre Windows are incorporated into the bedrooms, kitchen and alfresco area to offer a number of benefits to the homeowners including fresh air and wide open views out onto the natural surroundings. When closed, they offer protection from the elements so outdoor time can be enjoyed without the worry of the weather changing.

The sleeping quarters are located on the upper floor which looks down over the main living areas. With a busy family lifestyle, this allows communication between both levels whist having a feeling of separation.

The project was the winner of the BDAQ Regional Design Awards 2019 – New Houses $750,001 – $1,000,000 Construction Cost.

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

MACKAY, NORTH QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA

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.
