The development was a re-interpretation of the duplex typology for a narrow site. The dwellings were stacked in a Class 2 configuration with similar floor plates on the lower & upper levels. The mid floor was split with additional bedroom spaces to each dwelling

Private roof top areas accessible from the units were provided with outdoor entertaining areas, BBQ spaces and rooftop pools. The rooftops were utilised so these outdoor spaces could capitalise on views over Burleigh Headland and the surf break and ocean beyond

A heavier more brutalist form was used on the design being softened by natural materials of timber & stone

Larger North aspect decks & outdoor areas were positioned to capitalise on views, breezes & Northern light. Large overhangs for the sub-tropical site

About the

We Are Habitat Studio Architects

Habitat Studio Architects is a progressive design based boutique architectural practice committed to providing our clients with quality design and professional service.

Habitat Studio Architects is a multi-disciplinary practice established in 2010 out of an urge for creative freedom to maintain a high level of design on projects that connect with & consider the environment in which they are sited. Each of our designs are a reflection of the unique character of the site, to create a ‘sense of place’ that responds to climate and the local context. Environmental sustainability of our architecture is part of the process rather than an option. We incorporate sustainable principles and appropriate material selection in all our designs relevant to the brief.

The collaborative nature of the studio allows great flexibility with a large range of project scales including high end residential and beach houses, multi-residential townhouses and units, mixed use commercial, hospitality, industrial, fit-outs & interiors. Habitat Studio is an Australian Institute of Architects A+ Practice with project locations spreading down the Eastern Coastline from Cairns, Airlie Beach, Gold Coast, Northern NSW, Newcastle, Melbourne & Internationally to Singapore & Papua New Guinea.

You’ll probably find we are more passionate about your project than you are.

Habitat Studio Architects offers services in Architecture, Design & Documentation, Interiors, as well as 3D Visualisation in the form of concept modelling & sketches through to photorealistic marketing images.

We have a close working relationship with all secondary consultants required to realise your project and coordinate the relevant approvals process by authorities. We value the close working relationship between the client, architect and builder and have point of contact with previous recommended builders to tender for you and ensure a smooth process. Our fine level of detail and resolution of our buildings and documentation has a reputation amongst builders, making their job easier to achieve the desired outcome.

We have a varied scope of services reflective of our fees tailored to suit your needs & budget. Whether it be design only, DA approval, documentation, interiors or complete contract administration through construction, Habitat Studio Architects can accommodate your requirements. Through value adding to your end product and the cost savings through the construction phase it should be considered as an investment through the building process you can’t afford to go without.

From conception through to completion we work collaboratively with the client for a greater understanding of how they live their life, to develop their brief and to create a solution that far exceeds their expectations.

At ArchiPro we recognise and acknowledge the existing, original and ancient connection Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have to the lands and waterways across the Australian continent. We pay our respects to the elders past and present. We commit to working together to build a prosperous and inclusive Australia.
