Set on rolling farm­land, this south-east Queens­land home is blessed with in­cred­i­ble views. Want­ing to max­imise their en­joy­ment of the spot, the home­own­ers turned to Wright­son Ste­wart to re­design the front en­try and en­hance its role as an in­door/out­door en­ter­tain­ing area. They wanted a com­fort­able, flex­i­ble space that could cater for large or small groups, with a range of seat­ing op­tions. A new tiled en­trance now merges with an ex­tended tim­ber deck and some walls have been re­placed with pull-down in­sect screens, a prac­ti­cal­ity that doesn’t de­tract from the over­all de­sign. The re­sult is an invit­ing so­cial space that frames the view and lights up like a lantern at night. “It’s like a bea­con for vis­i­tors in the mid­dle of the park set­ting,” says Ian Wright­son.
