Danny’s House is a refurbishment of a Queenslander in New Farm, Brisbane with a contemporary, predominantly concrete extension to the rear. The house embodies overtly subtropical themes, with deep overhangs, protected edges and the greening of the roof planes, creating a soft edge to the hard architecture. The house is experienced as two quite distinct personalities which overwhelmingly align with the two street frontages – timber to the front and concrete to the rear. This has been truly collaborative project between the builders, sub-contractors, consultant team and client, all rounded off with bespoke landscaping and a fully tailored interior. This project was a joy for all involved and this positive energy is now resonant in the built outcome.
