North Lakes house is a private residence designed by dsarchitecture and is located in North Lakes / Mango Hill, Brisbane, Australia.
This North Lakes – Mango Hill new home project is a contemporary family home with pool, indoor/outdoor room, views over the North Lakes and beautifully detailed entry & interior spaces.
Dsarchitecture was commissioned to prepare a conceptual design and development of this home plus the addition of obtaining approvals, construction drawings, interior and landscape design and documentation.
The clients were financial planners and their two older teenage children required a family home to satisfy all of their lifestyle needs for the next 20 years. A pivotal component of the design was to design for the homes aspect , views and to maximise the entire site to its full potential. A large component of this design was the external design and interior design also completed by dsarchitecture.
The design provides the client with a sub-tropical contemporary home. Contemporary roof forms have been chosen not because they emphasise the contemporary nature of the clients home but mostly to maximise the homes exposure to breezes and light from the north-easterly aspect and to provide detailed and thought out front elevations for the corner position.
The clients home has been designed as two primary pavilions with the first floor bridging between these pavilions. The first pavilion on the ground floor provides the main indoor and outdoor living spaces with the second providing the main bedroom and utility spaces. On the first floor is located all other bedrooms and secondary living spaces.
Both levels are designed to maximise each areas exposure to either the north-east or south-east or a combination of both preferred aspects and to capture the view or to provide views over the pool area.
