This intergenerational family house was designed for a spectacular elevated and sloping site on a hill near Coolum on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. Capturing the northern views towards Noosa was a primary driver for the design. On the ground floor level the house is arranged around a landscaped north-facing central courtyard, adjacent to which are the master bedroom, main deck and kitchen spaces. Overlooking this space on the upper level are 3 bedrooms for visiting family members, as well as a study. The private lower level accommodates a separate apartment.
