His firm told the awards that “the block falls steeply to the north allowing two stories of home to tuck in under the more public office”.“The house was close to a squat when purchased, but one with a long history of transient musicians and graffiti artists living there. The walls were covered in works by well known artists such as Sofles and Lister. Sofles came back to paint a new work in the house which now sits within the new three storey void connecting ground through sleeping to sky.”QUEENSLAND STATE ARCHITECTURE AWARDS 2017:Residential Architecture – Houses (Alterations & Additions)The Elina Mottram Award – Burleigh Street House by MEAward – Dornoch Terrace House by James Russell ArchitectCommendation – Paddington Residence by Kieron Gait Architects(Source: AIA)QLD Architecture Awards 2017 – Commendation for Residential Architecture – Houses (Alterations and Additions): Paddington Residence by Kieron Gait Architects.

The designers said the pavilions helped to create “a series of gardens that moderate breezes, internalise the view providing privacy and reinforce the landscape”.The pavilion to the north contained a new master bedroom and outdoor room, while the one to the south was where a carport and a substantial garden were put in place.According to the jury citation, the reworking of the small brick bungalow created “a fine sequence of connected indoor and outdoor spaces”.“The three connected pavilions intelligently incorporating existing building fabric create open rooms engaged with garden interstices while secure from the street.QLD Architecture Awards 2017 – Winner for Residential Architecture – Houses (Alterations and Additions): Burleigh Street House by ME.
