Aussie architecture firm Aboda Design Group sent us images of the Peregian House located in Noosa Heads of Queensland, Australia. The home was made as a prototype to give potential owners a solid idea of what the pre-designed house plan will look and feel like. These homes come in a range of different styles, ensuring there is something out there for every buyer. This particular home was created for a young family with an eco agenda and a budget.
They say location, location, location is everything, and this particular location is a steep site that required careful considerations in terms of access, vehicle storage, green space and outdoor living areas while leaving the existing environment intact.
According to the architects, “The reduced level of the ground floor was determined to ensure that the required retaining of the superstructure and pool would create flat external zones, on an otherwise unusable terrain. The final building position promotes a well-oriented building, to capture prevailing breezes, minimizing heat loads, maximizing natural paths of ventilation and the National Park vistas from Mt Coolum in the south through to Mt Cooroy in the north.”
This custom house design meets all the homeowners’ criteria – low-maintenance and durable, well suited to the site and scenery, fitting for a family, and cost-effective.
Interiors are made for to suit the daily life of a growing family who appreciates sleek style and the finer things in life. This simple layout divides the home into 3 areas: the kids’ wing, living quarters and the parents’ retreat, all connected to the outdoors through expansive windows. The kitchen, living and dining areas take advantage of the north-facing orientation to flood this open space with natural light. Views to the north-west capture breathtaking vistas.
Floor-to-ceiling glass doors open to the deck surrounded by trees and enjoying privacy afforded by the steep rocky hillside. While small in scale, interiors are spacious and offer a big impact in their modern finishes and stunning views.
Step out into this alfresco living area, where a palette of white and wood echoes that of the indoors.
The wide windows lighten and brighten this home, but combined with the overhanging roof and orientation, they invite seasonal solar gain and the opportunity for passive climate control.
The deck works its way around the house, leading you to the shimmering pool that links the house to nature. This yard has a bit of everything – grassy ground, shady trees, sparkling water and blue skies. What more could you ask for?
The expansive glazing affords interiors views of this inviting outdoor paradise, extending living space far beyond its walls.
