Light & Airy Sunrise Beach Renovation Project

Light & Airy Sunrise Beach Renovation Project

QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA

The Sunrise Beach project is an incredible renovation by Adrian Ramsay Design House. The kitchen area has been repositioned into the heart of the home to allow a more natural flow-through home design. By redesigning the kitchen layout and incorporating Breezway Louvre Windows, this entertaining space can now take in the outdoor views and natural breezes for the clients to enjoy.

It was also important for the clients to be able to connect with their outdoor surroundings but still have privacy while occupying the bathroom. Therefore frosted louvre blades worked perfectly for this. By adding Breezway Louvre Windows into the bathroom this allowed for masses of airflow, and helps the room to breathe and keep it dry, reducing any build-up of mould in wet areas.

Overall a stunning redesign making this home a more naturally comfortable living space for the homeowners to enjoy.

This project also won a Regional Building Designers Association of Australia award.

QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA
This stand-alone 20m x 7m studio was designed by Adrian Ramsay Design House and was requested by the clients to integrate well with the existing property and to flow into the existing home seamlessly.

Whilst the project faced some site challenges including boundary setbacks, AR Design has done an amazing job creating a relaxing and multi-functional space.

The structure houses a rehabilitation resistance pool indoors that is completely bug-proof. Breezway Louvre Windows were selected as the window of choice to allow abundant crossflow ventilation into the area with the option of air conditioning, if required.

The space also accommodates a full gym for both clients and their personal trainer, a playroom including pool table, and an area for massages and rehabilitation.

This project won the Regional and National Design Award for the Building Designers Association of Australia.

Breezway Louvres help win Best Contemporary Residential Design for 2021

QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA
‘A House that Breathes’ is a new build project by Adrian Ramsay Design House. The project has been designed with no fixed windows, only doors and Breezway Louvre Windows to allow the house to breathe all year round from its fresh, natural surroundings.

The clients have never had to use their power-hungry air conditioning, even during its hottest months in tropical South-East Queensland. This is due to the constant flow of natural ventilation from wide open Breezway Louvre Windows. The owners, Heather and Glenn stated, “no matter what the weather is they can always have a louvre open”. The design of a Breezway Louvre allows blades to be freely angled, even during light rain, so that natural air can continue to flow in and circulate the house.

This strategic, well thought-out design is naturally brightened, and is all about bringing the outdoors in, to help make the home come alive and allow the owners to enjoy their living space all year round.

This project won ‘Best Contemporary Residential Design (Australia)’ by BUILD in their Architectural Awards for 2021.

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.
