This multi-level home was constructed on the last remaining block on a street that has unparalleled views over Launceston. Nestled amongst beautiful trees, with Ben Lomond to the South and the Tamar Valley to the North, the design of the house has naturally taken full advantage of the site.
Our clients were impressed with the handling of this difficult site; particularly considering the local council’s stringent planning requirements. The steepness of the block was difficult to work with at times due to the high level of rainfall being experienced in Launceston at the time of the build. Our team worked well to come up with solutions to manage this so that the project could continue uninterrupted.
Due to the client’s position at a local commercial contracting company, we were given the opportunity to work with some materials that are not commonly seen in residential projects; notably Alucobond®. Our client organised onsite training for our team to ensure that the product was installed correctly and the end result looks outstanding!
Inside, this residence provides a stunning open plan kitchen/dining area featuring stone benchtops and quality appliances. The floating floor, finished in a Tas Oak style, fits naturally with the bush setting surrounding the site, which can be seen through the many windows that appear to create frames around the scenery.
The light-filled living areas are spacious and open up to a large covered deck, which overlooks the city and Tamar River below.
The multiple cantilevered areas on the upper level provide additional room without taking up land space.
This home has been beautifully designed and created in a joint effort between Streefland Homes & Developments and Honed Architecture + Design. The clients came to us with a vision, which our team has brought to reality.
