The existing Queensland weatherboard home, quintessential of its New Farm streetscape, was transformed as a renovation and additions project by Vibe Design Group. The home located just outside of Brisbane had a design approach that focused on the successful integration of old and new. The modern addition respectfully cradles the old, allowing the existing ‘Queenslander’ to retain its prominence to the street. New spaces are carefully integrated with the existing conditions for seamless functionality and an understated harmony between the two styles. Smaller elements add to great effect. The garage door is hidden amongst the weatherboard cladding while the study roof hovers above the existing pitched roof that completes itself entirely.
Thoughtful integration culminates in an improved outcome for the existing building while taking advantage of all the new elements of the extension.
