Habitat Studio Architects recently completed the Sunbrite Residence in 2022. This contemporary luxury home features a natural material palette of stone, timber and concrete, and is designed to embrace the sub-tropical climate in which it is located.
The dwellings bulk and mass was pushed back into the site to create beautiful light-filled North facing courtyards and take advantage of views to the Broadbeach skyline. Vegetation was integral to the design, with wedges of the building mass carved out and vegetation veins penetrating the internal spaces. Rooftop and First Floor planters provide cooling vegetation, healthy living spaces and soften views from above.
The Sunbrite Residence features passive principles for light, energy and breeze, and its timeless architecture reflects the sub-tropical climate in which it is sited. The result is a luxurious, modern and comfortable home that performs where and how we live.
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.
