fresh and stylish


The Weekend Post - Real Estate - - COVER STORY -

ANEW approach to liv­ing in the trop­ics was the de­sign brief given to the ar­chi­tect of Uni­son Homes three dis­play homes at Argentea.

Greg Tate of Uni­son Homes said he be­lieved they had de­liv­ered a fresh­ness that in­cor­po­rated all that was re­quired for trop­i­cal liv­ing but with a con­tem­po­rary twist.

“Ar­chi­tec­ture in north Queens­land has been dom­i­nated in re­cent times by in­flflu­ences of the Ba­li­nese or colo­nial style,’’ he said.

“We be­lieve that the so­phis­ti­cated and savvy home buyer or in­vestors are look­ing for more than just the repet­i­tive tra­di­tional styles.

“The de­signs pro­vided at the Argentea De­sign Cen­tre pro­vide a new fresh approach and ap­peal. Our de­signs in­vite peo­ple to ex­pe­ri­ence prac­ti­cal and com­fort­able liv­ing so­lu­tions for a trop­i­cal cli­mate.’’

Mr Tate said in­te­rior de­sign was also an im­por­tant func­tion of liv­ing in the 21st cen­tury and should work in har­mony with the ar­chi­tec­ture.

“Cool, com­fort­able and very prac­ti­cal are the key el­e­ments that Vic­to­ria Ciddor De­signs has im­ple­mented through­out the in­te­ri­ors of th­ese spec­tac­u­lar de­signs,’’ he said.

“The three homes show­cased have com­mon de­sign fea­tures, of­fer­ing flflex­i­bil­ity of de­sign in a pavil­ion style, with a con­tem­po­rary mod­ern twist.’’

All in­cor­po­rate a cen­tral breeze­way that acts as a nat­u­ral air­con­di­tioner to cool the homes, high ceil­ings, high qual­ity fi­fix­tures and fi­fit­tings, in­ter­con­nect­ing decks and walk­ways are also fea­tures of the homes.

The breeze­way also acts func­tion­ally as the main cir­cu­la­tion hub for the home, pro­vid­ing a shel­tered, se­cure but open con­nec­tion be­tween all of the spa­ces.

“Uni­son Homes of­fers as stan­dard ar­chi­tect de­signed homes to po­ten­tial clients and this re­fresh­ing approach en­sures they re­ceive a home that is uniquely de­signed for their po­si­tion, lifestyle and bud­get,’’ Mr Tate said.

“Homes from Uni­son are not just a roof over your head they sim­ply need to work in bal­ance with the en­vi­ron­ment, fu­ture needs and bud­get con­straints,’’ he said.
