Designed as a space for extended family to gather with their families, the Brookes Residence respects the character of the existing Queenslander to create a home focused on connectedness.

With consideration to the streetscape, the existing home was repositioned to allow the new addition to embrace the most desirable light and breezes from a north facing landscaped courtyard and pool. Adjacent to this is the new kitchen which forms the heart of the home and serves as the new center connecting the old with the new.

It was important that the materiality continue the traditional vernacular of the existing home, but without imitation. The external cladding of the new two story pavilion is a horizontal timber cladding to reflect the existing home. The internal materiality was restrained to neutral tones and limited species of timber to allow the landscape, light, shadows, sounds and scents to be the hero of the occupied spaces.

The result is a home that reflects the best qualities of living in suburban Brisbane while playing host to the next generation of family and friends.
