DiGirolamo Residence

Chermside, Brisbane

The primary strategy of this refurbishment was to activate the previously unused extremities of the rear yard through the placement of deck, seating and storage areas, and in so doing extend the yard visually and physically. 'Outdoor rooms' have been defined through the use of different terraced levels and surface finishes, to create a diversity of environments in which to indulge. The reclamation of the rear yard to the large residence has also extended the internal spaces creating an outdoor/ indoor environment suited to the South-East Queensland climate.
