A Central Courtyard Fills an Australian Home With Light and Lush Greenery
The renovated family home in Queensland has a modest footprint—both in its physical build and its approach to sustainability. For an Australian couple, the search for a new home led them right back to where they started—their modest Queenslander home in the quiet Brisbane suburb of Paddington. “The clients loved their location, and had been looking for another house in the area that could grow with them as their children started high school,” says Matt Kennedy, architect and founder of local practice Arcke. “Underwhelmed with their options, but happy with the size of their house, they felt they should re-renovate.” Andy Macpherson “Our overarching brief to Arcke was to have a family house that would suit our needs for the next stage in our lives,” say the clients. “We were happy with the overall size of the house, and we were looking for improvements to its layout and functionality, rather than an extension.” Andy Macpherson The home sits on a long, narrow site in Paddington, a city-fringe suburb characterized by a consistent streetscape of Queenslander-style houses built between 1900 and 1940.
