New Queenslander

Posted on Thu, 9 Aug 2007 by midcenturyjo

This is the future of the Queenslander house. Just as the old houses addressed climate issues, today’s architects are taking a holistic approach in climate consideration and design. Houses are often only one room wide to improve cross ventilation and louvers, sliding doors/walls and breezeways are an important feature. Natural vegetation is left not only to provide privacy and views but to shade the house from the hot sun. Once again houses are raised to improve air flow. What results is a stunning home like this one by Andresen O’Gorman Architects. (Recently sold for $1.3 million AUD)

wow. this place is awesome. too woodsy for me but it’s gorgeous! feel like living in a treehouse!

AUD$1.3 million is actually low Jo! Houses here in North of Melbourne are going for that all the time… and not even that impressive looking!

This place is amazing….but I wonder if all the vertical lines would drive me insane. Sort of like being in a prison cell.
