Category House

Island Hideaway, Bribie Island

This luxurious home was awarded 2017 Brisbane House of the Year at the Master Builders Awards.

The home was spread over two blocks of land and three levels with uninterrupted views of Pumicestone Passage and the Glass House Mountains.

Some of the challenging aspects of the design included:

  • the house being made up of 6 pavilions buildings connected by curved steel framed corridors;
  • high ceilings (up to 3.6m in some rooms);
  • large glazing walls including frameless corners to maximise views
  • a roof hung steel and glass floating stair enclosure over the pool between residence levels;
  • a basement wine cellar;
  • large areas of reflection pools built flush to the walls of the house and a waterfall edge to the lower swimming pool area; and
  • a large span suspended concrete slab roof.
