James Street, New Farm

This project consisted of a 3 storey addition to the rear of an existing residence in New Farm.  Inertia worked closely with the architect to deliver a great indoor and outdoor living and entertaining space.

Our design process started with our Project Lead conducting a pre-design site visit to understand more of what the existing structure will allow for in our design and discuss any potential opportunities and challenges that could be faced.

The main challenge for this design was the allowance for large open spaces with large spans. As more common bracing options would not be sufficient, our design allowed for the use of portal frames to accommodate for, and even add, additional span to the living spaces.

As always, we then worked closely with the Builder to ensure a smooth construction process and Client piece of mind
