ascot house

a creative addition to a traditional queenslander that compliments the existing building while transforming it for a contemporary lifestyle.


this innovative addition responds to the unique culture and climate of the region. the design preserves the street character of pre-war houses while opening the house to the rear of the property with new gardens and swimming pool.

the proposal was to remove previous additions at the rear of the house and replace them with light filled spaces and outdoor rooms that connected to the new subtropical gardens.

by using traditional light weight materials in a new configuration this design proposes  a contemporary interpretation of the traditional queenslander.
