This new home is the perfect example of award-winning architect James Russell’s use of space, consideration of client’s lifestyle, and sensitivity to the surrounding neighbourhood. Intelligent utilisation of space and building products are combined to create a house that lives, while also providing secure spaces for when the family is out of town.
Located in Clayfield, amongst Brisbane’s northern inner city, this home identifies with the historic brickworks in the area. Working within tight Council Small Lot and Character zoning regulations, James has brought a collection of design ideas together to achieve this outstanding home. Earthy and durable building products were chosen and engineered to achieve the design objective. The brickwork is beautifully used throughout the home in the finished texture, as well as providing structural support for the suspected concrete floor system. Careful attention to detail has been taken to ensure this family home structurally stands the test of time in this older suburb.
