Tinbeerwah Residence by Richard Kirk Architect
Brisbane-based architectural practice, Richard Kirk Architect, has designed the Tinbeerwah Residence project. Completed in 2011, the contemporary family property is located in Sunshine Coast hinterland, Brisbane, Australia.
This luxury home is a semi-rural retreat located in the Sunshine Coast hinterland, and was designed for an international client.
According to the architect: “Siting of the residence has been carefully considered to respond to environmental conditions, and to control the transition from the designed landscape of the residence to the natural bushland beyond. The central axis of the house is oriented North-South which aligns toward Mount Tinbeerwah – a landmark for the region.
“The design of the residence continues RKA’s commitment to simplicity of form and planning. There is a great emphasis on material qualities, with a shared commitment between the client and architect to produce a residence that will age and improve over time.
“The palette of external materials consists mainly of off-white cement render, zinc panels and Western Red Cedar cladding which are allowed to weather naturally.
“Bespoke New Guinea Rosewood timber joinery and Silver Ash timber panelling provide warmth to the interior spaces.”
