ARCHITECT DESIGNED MOUNTAIN RETREAT
Designed as a modern rainforest retreat in the lush hills of the Scenic Rim above the Gold Coast. Ten minutes drive from the M1, it feels like a world away from the bustle of the City. The dwellings height above the rainforest floor, achieved with cantilevered, galvanised structural framing, allows an extremely low maintenance landscape. No lawn mowing required.
The design of the steel support frame allows the dwelling to hover well above the landscape and offers easy access to parking and house.
The floor plan is highly efficient. The bedrooms can be separated from the living space with a double curtain of shear and heavy drape on one side and a shear and operable solid core folding door / wall system to the other. Excellent cross flow ventilation is obtained with louvered glazing and sliding doors.
The large island bench in the living space provides a clean, minimalist kitchen focus, enhanced with the separation of a Utility Room which contains refrigerator, Miele dishwasher and washing machine.
The screened terrace space which can be open to the living room with stacking sliding doors, allows sitting amongst the tree tops with views of birdlife. The trees can be made even closer by operating the 6m wide flyscreen on hydraulic struts, which opens to sit neatly in place in a recess of the terrace ceiling.
This is an extremely uniquely designed architect home that is a must to see to really appreciate the splendour it oozes. Call your local agents to arrange an inspection.
