Chambers House


The Chambers House is the restoration of a raw, crafted, modernist building which presented a number of practical and deterioration challenges to overcome. First constructed in the 1970s, the house sits proudly alongside the timber Queenslander-style homes of Teneriffe and New Farm. Raw, concrete blockwork and local Brisbane ‘tuff’ stonework are juxtaposed with blackened timbers and light oak interiors to create a modest yet striking palette of materials. The outcome respects the past and breathes new life into a much-loved Brisbane icon.

Mosman House


The Mosman House is a ‘Brazilian Modern’ inspired home perched on Sydney Harbour overlooking Taylors Bay. The house mediates between grounded courtyard living on the north and a dramatically cantilevered edge that addresses the enviable water views to the south. A textured and honest palette of concrete, stone, timber and steel creates a timeless and robust backdrop to the interiors, exquisitely executed by Justine Hugh-Jones, as well as the landscape, masterfully curated by William Dangar. The architecture juxtaposes ideas of solidity and intimacy, with lightness and extroversion, all beautifully crafted by the hand of County Constructions for our generous and supportive clients.

Danny’s House


Dannys’ 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.

The Nest


The Nest is a family home tucked away on a large bush block that combines an enviable combination of city views and an acreage lifestyle within the inner-city of Brisbane. The house draws its inspiration from modern roots, expressed through the juxtaposition of heavy vertical and light horizontal planes. A palette of sandblasted concrete, Spotted Gum timber and natural stone create a robust, warm and timeless aesthetic.



The Greenhouse is an environmentally responsible family home built on acreage outside Brisbane. A wonderful collaboration between architect, builder and friends, this home represents a wonderful balance of lifestyle aspiration, sustainability agenda and rewarding process. Our first collaboration with Healthy Abode Living, this home looks to explore the simple, the crafted and poetic with regards to architectural agenda and interior fit-out.
