Residence Sandgate

Residence Sandgate

This residence is facing east overlooking the bay. The original 1900 building is located on a 13m wide site and was shifted sideways and raised to a minimum legal height to preserve the proportions of this handsome Queenslander. The brief required 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms as well as a generous 2 car garage. The existing traditional stumps and subtle arches are reflected in the new work. The exposed lower side wall is recessed to avoid the 2 stories of weatherboard look. It is painted cheerful colours to reflect its seaside location.
