On a small lot in central Rosalie, this renovation extends an existing small Queenslander with a new volume to the rear of the site that accommodates a program of spaces more familiar to the Queensland lifestyle. With bedrooms suited well to the confines of the original house, the addition houses a central rumpus, gym and master suite at the upper level and kitchen, living and dining at the lower which overlooks a new pool and extensive green space. Maximising the outlook across the urban landscape of Brisbane’s timber and tin houses, the house maintains its original presence on the streetscape while maximizing open plan living and connection to the outdoors to the rear of the site.
