DUKE HOUSE

This is a major renovation of an existing large house in Doonan, that occupies a double block high up in the Hinterland enjoying far reaching views to Noosa and the beach beyond. It was decided to demolish the house back to the original suspended slab and ground slab, this would allow us as Architects to completely redesign the house with new layouts and a totally different style of architecture.The design is based around a series of floating roof plains some of which have large cut outs for feature trees to grow through. The house now embraces the enviable ocean views as soon as you enter through the front door and also from all the main living and sleeping areas. The poolside elevation has been designed around a large framing detail that spans most of the width of the house. A free standing garage has been extending to now be a Guest Cottage for visitors coming to stay.
