Chelmer Residence

Wednesday 03 Jan 2007

Element 10 is an expansive, new residence location on the Indooroopilly Reach of the Brisbane River. The design of the house seeks to create spaces in which the benefits of being close to the river - breezes, open vistas and intimate glimpses can be experienced. A 'public', double height spine connects the front courtyard area, through the house, to the river. The principle living areas are located along the river edge and open out onto the river side with a series of open terraces and platforms. changes in materials and finishes along with varying volumes are used to define the public and private parts of the house. These materials and finishes which include timber, masonry, stone, textiles and stainless steel also contribute to the character and the experience of the house.
