Modern interpretation of the Queenslander. Moving the veranda
living to the inside of the house. (Lazy afternoon feel)
Style/design walks the line between minimalistic and rustic.
Uncluttered yet homely.
High ceiling. V.J. walls and ceilings. Energy has room to move
and not stagnate. (Stagnate energy is negative energy)
No plasterboard in house.
Bulk insulation is the secret to success in passive solar design
plus minimising of unwanted sun in the summer.
House design does not draw attention to it but allows the
occupance to be absorbed into the expanse of the surrounding space. (Opens the
mind and expands the mind ideas)
One room wide for cross ventilation (human scale, never more then
three steps away from the window or door). No closed in space.
High louvers for hot air removal (giving the control back to
occupance - not relying on machines for our existance).
Human portions to internal spaces not overwhelming cold or
Hand built with passion, which flows as positive energy through
North orientation for maximum winter solar gain.
Controlled energy flows including to entry door.
Clear corrugated sheeting to stair external wall to build on the
internal veranda design theme, as if walking outside the house to access the
main bedroom. This separates the flow of energy between the sleeping area on the
upper level and the living on the lower level without the use of the doors.
Minimum use of internal doors (free but controlled flow of
Roof air extractors to move air within the ceilling space (stale
air forms negative energy to occupance).
House design is a great balance of space materials and energy
flow for calming energy to heal our body and mind.
House is built on solid rock foundations. Large site rocks as
supports to entry, roof expands on rock foundations for safe, calming healing.
Deck to entry door as bridge from external world to calm internal
space (leave emotional baggage on bridge).
