Contemporary Indoor/Outdoor Living at Park House, Brisbane

Fortitude Valley-based architectural practice Shaun Lockyer Architects have created the Park House project. Completed in 2012, the contemporary home is located in New Farm, Queensland, Australia.

According to the architects: “The contemporary Australian house is a dramatic alteration and addition to what was originally a speculative ‘cookie cutter’ style house in a larger development (but in a fantastic park-side location in inner city Brisbane).

“The luxury Brisbane house explores the reprogramming of two key areas, primarily associated with living and lifestyle. The first and foremost altered area is the kitchen / living / dining which has been redesigned to optimise the indoor / outdoor living experience.

“The second area involved the addition of the ‘Park Room’ on top of the existing living areas which personifies the best of subtropical indoor / outdoor living. This addition afforded the opportunity to introduce a number of voids and volumetric devices that link the different levels and create a sense of drama. These devices also allowed for light to penetrate deep into the existing living spaces.

“The new work involved a significant qualitative upgrade with bespoke timber joinery, marble accents and a beautifully landscaped perimeter to heighten the enjoyment and experience of the new spaces of the contemporary Brisbane property.
