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/

I am pleased to say, not only is the venue fun and relaxed, the beer was pretty awesome! The Lost Palms Brewing Co. is located at 11 Oak Ave, Miami, Queensland.

With beautifully landscaped surrounds it was a pleasure to experience and would recommend a visit. The coffee was great too!
