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.
I recently visited a project in Coombabah, on the Gold Coast, where I was involved with the re-design of the facades. I had a tour of the site and managed to take some photos during construction. I might have to re-visit once its all done. http://hansfordresidences.com.au/
The 3D render artist has been busy working up our new home designs lately. This one is for a new home at Fitzgibbon Chase in the Brisbane suburb of Fitzgibbon.
Matthew Dean Architects specialises in the design of prestige modern homes. Here is another currently under way in Kedron, on the Brisbane’s north side. We’re looking forward to seeing this one come to life in 2017.
We recently completed a design concept for a Hamptons style house in Kingscliff NSW.
An architect in Iran has designed as built a house that rotates. Apparently this provides flexibility to open up to the views in summer and close up in winter. The central void space means the house lets plenty of natural light regardless of whether the rotating boxes are in or out. However, I’m not sure the rotating option was really necessary; an interesting house nevertheless.
