The Tarragindi Steel house is an exemplar for small lot family living. The spacious light filled interiors and dramatic double height spaces defy the constraints of the block size.

Intimate and generous garden and court spaces weave through the house bringing the interior in constant connection with the outside – providing a range of garden spaces for sitting, kids play and veges. The robust expressive use of steel, concrete and brick is softened by the warmth of timber and brass and the bold use of colour.

Functional and simple, the planning of the house keeps the service spaces discrete and ensures that all the living spaces and bedrooms enjoy lots of north light and access to winter sun.  The design facilitates energy minimisation with lots of natural light, hot air venting through high level windows and well shaded living spaces kept cool by the thermal mass of the slab-on-ground construction.

A private, landscaped, north-east courtyard forms the catalyst of the ‘V House’, which sits proudly on the edge of Sunshine Coast’s Mooloolah River. The ‘V’ refers to the floor plan which hugs the boundaries of the property allowing for a transparent living pavilion that physically and visually connects the courtyard to the water beyond. The architecture continues SLA’s dialogue of concrete, timber and stone, drawing heavily from both Modern and South-American, subtropical narratives.

The idea of the long hallway connects this project to the existing 4 room workers cottage.

Set on an elevated site looking over Brisbane city to the East, the house navigates between a series of small rooms and courtyards connected via a hallway running from the front door to the rear garden.  Rooms and spaces peel off the corridor to reveal their own identity and relationship with the sheltered garden to the north and outlook to the east.

The materials shift from a solid ground plane of reclaimed brick and concrete to an exposed structure of hardwood framing and exposed joists.  The upper level becomes a lightweight volume, lifting up to the Southern sky above the cottage roof.

The elevated structure has a translucent skin, shielded from the sun by a timber screen.  Openings punctuated in the skin each focus on a particular outlook.  The upper level spaces culminate in a ‘birdcage’ – an external screened terrace nestled amongst the treetops.
