The Woodlands Residence started as a sloped site with established trees and a dated pre-existing home. Our clients’ desire for a larger and more suitable family home led to the decision to demolish the existing home and build a new one.. The new home’s entrance leads to an open plan living, kitchen with a walk-in-pantry, and dining area configured in an L-shape around an alfresco area. Also on the ground floor is a playroom, study, bedroom, bathroom, and laundry/mudroom. The first floor contains the master bedroom with a walk-in-robe and ensuite, a secondary bedroom and a bathroom. A double garage holds a large storage area for bikes, paddleboards and surfboards The facade is a combination of vertical Colorbond cladding, horizontal white fibre cement weatherboards, vertical James Hardie cladding in both shale grey and natural white, and matt black brickwork on the ground floor. The windows are covered with a decorative perforated aluminium screen.
