J A S HOUSE
DATE: 2020 | LOCATION: Balinga, Gold Coast QLD
Nestled behind an existing weatherboard and fibro house you will find JAS House.
Hidden from its Golden Four Drive address, the visual delight of the J A S House contrasts with the compact design.
The brief was for a secondary dwelling with a minimum of two bedrooms.
Adhering to strict town planning guidelines, the initial design phase-resolved a small footprint and explored unifying a typical old house with a modern haven.
Externally, simple materials and colours don’t overwhelm the scale.
The spaciousness of the ground floor is amplified by a double-height void encompassing an industrial-look spiral staircase.
Stylish and uncluttered living areas benefit spatially from raking ceilings and an abundance of natural light courtesy of large openings.
Living areas are orientated with north-facing glazing and thoughtfully designed outdoor areas that contribute to an accentuated feeling of expanse.
Brass fittings throughout and raw exposed concrete flooring are balanced by a simple earthy palette.
