Located in Brisbane’s inner-city suburb of Teneriffe, Kingsholme is a modern 4-bedroom home showcasing a contemporary industrial design style. The home is bold and raw, utilising a mix of finished and unfinished concrete and steel surfaces to complete the design.
The result is an inner-city space that is fixable, liveable and stunning no matter when viewing the home externally or internally.
Due to the leafy and open outlook to the north-west, this was chosen as the best way to orientate the new home. Existing homes close to the eastern boundary limited the appeal of a north-easterly orientation.
The home sits low on the site and the vegetation on the high berm to west of the property assist in providing protection from the Westerly aspect.
Even though the site is predominantly flat, two homes where to be designed on the site reducing the usable space for each home.
An industrial style with raw tilt panel concrete walls and polished floors with a mix of raw and finished steel was chosen early in the design phase.
A desire was to design a home that felt insular that looked with-in itself and utilised as much of the small space as possible.
Open plan areas with large doors and windows where to be used to provided light and ventilation to all spaces and to connect the outside and the inside of the home.
The home become a design and construct project and continually evolved until its completion.
