Intermode expands into Queensland
Positioned on a spectacular hillside site overlooking Noosa’s hinterland and the ocean, we are thrilled to announce that Intermode’s latest project is our first in Queensland. Click here for more images
With a dramatically sloping and densely treed site, the challenging topography prompted a two level configuration. Capitalising on the slope of the land, the upper level living zones are afforded spectacular views whilst the lower level allows for protected underground garaging for two cars, water tanks and storage.
With the client brief calling for a pool, a perfectly square, concrete plunge pool rises from the lower level and appears as a floating form that punctures the timber deck providing a striking and unique design element.
Spotted Gum decking runs the length of the façade with expansive full width stairs providing the dual purpose of casual bench seating and a generous descent into a sunken entertainment deck where a pool house with bar facilities provides areas for outdoor entertaining and dining.
With a palette of finishes alluding to the warm climate of the Sunshine Coast, Intermode developed custom timber paints and stains to further complement the environment.
A custom silver grey timber stain to the exterior cladding was developed as a nod to the beautiful silvery, grey bark of the surrounding eucalypts while contrasting black steel columns provide strength and connection to the land and are purposefully dark to emphasis the juxtaposition to the pale timber form.
The interior colour palette is dominated by white and the pale grey of the polished concrete floor ensuring the spaces are cool and light as a counterpoint to the humidity. The one exception is a charcoal wall defining the working zone of the kitchen and the true centre of the house, providing for a strong visual element and point of interest. This same detail is cleverly replicated in the Pool House.
