A Design Brief: "Capture the Moon" and We did.
Updated: Oct 17, 2019
Sounds simple enough right? "Capture the moon" and bring the best Bribie Island living has to offer into the home design. Pavilion Studio Brisbane loves design briefs like this!
Not an ordinary day at the drawing board and no ordinary home design for this Bribie Island family.
From the street, the block presented a steep incline that levelled out to a flat pad with stunning, north-easterly canal views that not only stretched 180° from left to right of the block, but also as far as the eye could see.
To the rear, the block fell away down to canal level. Making access to the boat ramp somewhat challenging. It’s not every day that blocks of land like this come across the drawing board…
There were three main design objectives:
Capture the view in as many rooms as possible;
Must have high ceilings to the kitchen, dining and living for added light and breeze and finally, “Capture the moon!"
Pavilion Studio's client comment was that they "can see the moon at night all year round, and we don’t want the house to block it”.
The end result – a single level home with a humble facade that blends nicely with existing homes in the street. The rear of the home is an unexpected surprise of sweeping five metre high ceilings to the heart of the home.
Complimented by highlight louvered windows and a landscaped courtyard to the east taking in subtle canal views.
An imposing double height alfresco is complimented by striking structural framed posts, positioned to not only provide protection from the elements; but to capture both the breezes AND the moon - Success!
