Ashmore Duplex, Gold Coast

This duplex development I completed last year, in Ashmore on the Gold Coast, is currently under construction.


Mudgeeraba house, Gold Coast, Australia

Situated alongside a small creek in the picturesque countryside in Mudgeeraba in the Gold Coast Hinerland, this new home has been designed to complement its context by Matthew Dean at Matthew Dean Architects. The home has been designed to maximise the level of quality natural light provide cross-ventilation into the internal living spaces, by using high louvred windows. The large deck off the main living spaces takes in views to the creek and out towards the landscape. Living spaces are open plan and perfect for entertaining with a butler’s pantry and outdoor kitchen on the extensive deck. There is also a self-contained office that has been designed to be flexible and could also be used as a guest suite or elderly accommodation.

3D Virtual Tours

Sometimes visualising your project is difficult, leading to indecision, changes, and more expense. This is where technology can help. Interactive virtual reality is available to assist you to experience the design of your space in 3D high definition from any device.

Tiny Houses

Bigger is not always better in the world of quality architecture. Great ideas can be found in some of the smallest homes. Here are some  examples to inspire your next project.


Update: Coomera Waters Residence Under Construction


The construction on the mystery project in Serenade Drive, Coomera Waters, Qld has progressed. Roof sheeting and insulation is now in place and the client appears to be experimenting with the idea of external timber cladding. Its taking shape and looks promising.


Underground Homes


If you are prepared to compromise on a view and cross ventilation, an underground home may be a feasible option.


On the up side, underground homes provide effective shelter from extremes of weather, resulting in a constant internal temperature all year round. Noisy neighbours would also be less of a problem as the sound insulation would be optimal.
