New home coastal design
This home focuses on the outdoor living and takes advantage of the Queensland climate. Through the use of subtle, natural textures internally, and the balance of mixed materials on the external face such as stack stone and Axon vertical cladding, the design has resulted in a seamless transition between the indoors and outdoors.

Total House Size 750m2
