At home with heritage: classic Queenslander design

If you prefer to pay homage to old world charm, the Georgina residence goes back to basics when it comes to traditional Queenslander house design. Warm timber finishes and decorative colonial details feature on sweeping verandas, that speak to the superb aesthetic value and livability of Queensland sub-tropical climate. With space to spare, this timeless design is one to check out, especially for those with children, seeking a stunning yet practical home for years to come.

Grand Designs Australia: Trinity Pole House

The Trinity Pole House takes the central elements of Queenslander homes, and reinvigorates them for the modern age. The soaring heights of a colonial style roof remains, but natural materials like timbers are effectively featured in shutters and exposed timber panels on the exterior. Light and nature are welcomed into the home, but this time through stunning architectural design and additional hints of Balinese and Japanese styles infused into the home. This is Queenslander home design verging on resort-style elegance, a perfect interpretation of the style for the modern age.
