Few inner city suburbs offer as much contrast in terms of the views on offer as in Brisbane Australia and designed to perfectly take advantage of this diversity is the Fifth Avenue home by O’Neill Architecture.
One can instantly notice diverse textures and the exquisite beauty they bring inside the home as each room offers something unique and exceptional. It is the lower level that houses the living spaces along with a fabulous kitchen where the long custom island steals the spotlight a beautiful dining room a home bar and powder room.
A pavilion-style living area makes up the core of the house and flows into the spacious courtyard that contains a large wooden deck refreshing pool and ample space for a rejuvenating outdoor living experience.
Using two intersecting volumes the architects aimed to overcome the challenge of creating a stylish spacious and organic family home with a light-filled and airy interior. It is the lower levels of the two volumes that house the large living area and an additional family room along with a sleek modern kitchen in white and a lovely dining space.
Concrete is the main component of the lower level of the structure that sits on load-bearing stone walls while the top floor is comprised of a precast wood construction and contains the bedrooms and other private spaces. It is the ground floor that holds the living areas kitchen and dining space which offer panoramic views of the countryside.
Each unit takes 30-60 days to build and can be delivered almost anywhere and at a price of it does seem like a bargain for those looking to find some solitude in the lap of nature.
Large glass doors and skylights bring in ample ventilation across the various levels of the overhauled interior with simple finishes in contrasting textures making an impressive yet understated visual presence. A space-savvy staircase with steel mesh connects the mezzanine level with Juno’s bedroom and the top level studio.
