Harding

The Harding house makes a striking impression with its all black exterior, punctuated only by glass and small areas of contrasting timber tones. The design saw the transformation of the existing post-war Queenslander remaining largely in original condition, with a new wing cleverly linked to establish a large unified family home.

The site is subject to overland flow flooding, and this provided an opportunity to raise the ground level approximately 1m above the natural ground, establishing a sense of elevation and prominence upon entry to the house.

Internally, the house speaks a different language, primarily all white with tones of cool grey and light-blonde timber creating a sense of calmness, in stark contrast to the bold exterior. Accents of colour in built elements and furniture, give the interior its soft, feminine identity.
