Glass House Dream - "Commendation"
Commendation – Custom Built Homes Category,2009 Sunshine Coast / Wide Bay HIA Housing Awards.
The Glasshouse Mountains provide a stunning backdrop for this 446m2 executive style home.
Upon entering the house, the transition from outdoors to indoors is seamless with glass bifold doors that give the appearance of vast space and light and only enclose the living area when there is inclement weather.
Curtain wall windows throughout the house offer uninterrupted views of the majestic mountains and the feeling of space is complemented by the high raked ceilings on the upper level.
Three bedrooms and an executive office provide plenty of space for a growing family and the self contained lower level of the house was cleverly designed to accommodate maturing teenagers with its own private deck, lounge, kitchenette and bathroom.
The external cladding utilises composite aluminium panels, a feature tiled facade and hardwood chamfer boards that merge with the surrounding environment. Gabion baskets create aesthetic stone retaining walls on the sloping block.
