Shaun Lockyer Architects | Highgate Hill HouseThis project involved significant alterations and additions to a turn of the century cottage sitting high up above Brisbane City on a corner small lot site in the suburb of Highgate Hill. The house is well set back from the corner of the block affording a private and open garden courtyard and pool area from where one can enjoy city views. The house itself enjoys a progressive and overt contemporary “sleaving” of the new through the old.
