New Home

Built by: Executive Living Homes

This contemporary home was designed for a young modern newlywed couple seeking a long linear home with stunning street appeal. A key focus was to ensure adaptability for a growing family and to separate the children's wing from the parent's retreat. The outdoor entertaining area links the homes key areas, including the kitchen, dining, living and family rooms allowing flexibility and security for family living.


This home features a well thought out interior with custom cabinetry to enhance the appeal of the home. By incorporating timber features throughout the interior and exterior spaces of the home, it allows all the materials to flow seamlessly with one another.


New Home

Built by: Ascension Homes

This large family home was built on a small block on the coast line. It was designed to capture the beach-side views from all multi levels within the home 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. 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.


New Home

Built by: Cotter Builders

This semi rural setting home was designed for a young client's first home. The intent of the design was to capture the modern vibes of the home's design and to ensure longevity out of the design. This was achieved by careful consideration of cabinetry design and material selection throughout the home. 

The kitchen, the heart of the home, was to be generous and pack a visual punch. The Ultra Abode balances strong exterior form along with seamlessly integrated interiors that promote open plan living by connecting the living, dining, kitchen and external entertainment spaces to flow together. By incorporating high ceilings, stacking doors and breezeway louvres, this complemented the open plan living spaces.


New Home

The client's of this stunning designed home were two brothers, who wanted their home to be designed with an 'entertainers' feel. In order to meet the design requirements, the house was designed with an open plan living integrating with the entertainment area. High ceilings, timber beam features, mixed textures and materials creates an appealing look that the clients were extremely happy with. 

The living and entertaining area are centrally located in the home and are sheltered from the western afternoon sun. We have incorporated a corner stacker door adjoining the kitchen, dining and alfresco to maximize the ventilation and natural daylight for penetration to the core of the home, complemented by Breezeway louvres and raked ceilings.

Inverted Abode
New Home
Built By - Brad Kirkpatrick Builder

A family home with ‘Easy Living’ as the key element in design.  The design incorporates the need for space and separation for the family members while allowing good interaction within the common spaces.  The façade sets the home apart from others in the street with a stunning inverted truss entry portico which appears to float only supported by steel columns protruding from the walls beneath. 


The use of modern low maintenance products gives the home a striking commercial look.  The home is set on an angular section of land and this has formed the basis of the built form.  While appearing quite modest from the street the home develops into a spacious layout with raked ceiling to create volume.
