Mackay Terrace is a project designed in 2014 by Shaun Lockyer Architects and is located in Bardon, Queensland, Australia.
Mackay Terrace is a progressive, contemporary reinterpretation of character vernacular architecture situated on a steep, inner-city Brisbane site. The house explores an industrial aesthetic through the use of durable materials such as concrete, stone and timber. The architecture focuses on the ideas of transparency and volume to creatively articulate the living spaces and interrelationship between the inside and out. A key feature to this design is the reflection courtyard, located at the front of the home. This zone includes an outdoor fireplace and water feature to add a level of atmosphere to this key space. These elements provide an unexpected punctuation to the house from which panoramic district views can be enjoyed.
