Located in Brisbane’s inner-city suburb of Clayfield, Bayview is a renovated and extended Interwar Queenslander. This newly refurbished home has a mix of old-world charm and modern contemporary design elements and provides a warm and inviting sanctuary for this growing family.
The upper floor of the home remains largely unchanged except for minor updates the existing kitchen, such as stone benchtops and new cupboard doors and fittings. Upper floor spaces were painted to ensure a seamless connection between the old and the new.
A breezeway is used for the internal polished timber stairs connecting the two floors. Banks of floor to ceiling height louvers are used to maximise light and ventilation to both floors and to provide an open and inviting space when in the kitchen.
Upon entering the ground floor via the stairs or separate entry, you are greeted with a large open plan living area opening onto the outdoor living space. Large bi-fold doors and windows create a sense of space even when closed and allows light and ventilation to reach the bedrooms at the front of the home.
The two additional bedrooms are separated by a new bathroom. French doors provide access to private external spaces and provide natural light and ventilation for each room.
The design and building of this Bayview satisfy the clients brief and budget. The traditional character of the home is retained with a mix of modern contemporary living spaces.
