Project Description

496 – Herston

Back to Folio

Lift & Builder under Queenslander with a split storey two level extension at the rear of the dwelling. This was a challenging project from a planning perspective with overland flood overlay restricting the minimum habitable floor level and height restrictions limiting the overall height of the completed dwelling. The design outcome was to lift the existing house providing precious off street parking and storage space below leading to a split level rear two storey extension. Clever design and use of space has maximised the facilities and storage opportunities.
