QUIET CON­TEM­PLA­TION

Australian House & Garden - - ADVICE -

Some­times de­lib­er­ate sep­a­ra­tion is the se­cret to es­cape. In this beau­ti­fully con­ceived Bris­bane home, the own­ers de­cided against an open-plan lay­out in favour of de­fined spa­ces, such as this serene sit­ting room. The thought­fully crafted tim­ber floor and open­ing glass ‘walls’ cre­ate a time­less im­pres­sion and en­cour­age a slow, con­tem­pla­tive pace. “The house was in­tended as a sec­ond res­i­dence for a re­tired cou­ple who di­vide their time be­tween the city and coast,” says ar­chi­tect Sandy Cav­ill, di­rec­tor of Cav­ill Ar­chi­tects.

“The own­ers now spend the ma­jor­ity of their time here, be­cause it of­fers them the sanc­tu­ary they sought.” cav­il­lar­chi­tects.com

A breezy con­nec­tion to a pri­vate gar­den pro­vides a point of depar­ture.
