After many, many months of anticipation, this beautiful home in Trinity Beach in idyllic North Queensland is ready. Ready to take on the world with its Australian debut on Grand Designs in the near future, on the Fox Channel in April/May.
This project began with an impossible driveway in one of the wettest areas of the country, high above the trees with the mountain to the back of the site. The video on the Grand Designs website is a glimpse into what the builders and designers (to say nothing of the home-owners and even the TV crew!) had to face to begin the long journey of creating this masterpiece.
These photos say it all. The house has been landscaped perfectly into its tropical setting, and it’s all too easy to envisage yourself slipping into that lap pool on those hot, summer days. Best of all (OK, we’re biased…) but our balustrade works perfectly in this environment – tropical, timber, elegant and almost invisible – timeless character to an already classic Aussie contemporary home. Obviously the producers of Grand Designs think so, too.
Can’t wait to see our balustrade and pool fencing in the round, so to speak, when the program goes live next month. Stay tuned via the blog or ‘Like’ our Facebook page to hear about when the show is on. Can’t wait!
The beautiful home is set into the landscaped gardens with filtered ocean views. The cool and very necessary breezes coming off the Coral Sea flow freely through the balustrade uprights.
The design is really unusual and obviously alot of thought has gone into framing the pool with our balutrade, whilst still maintaining the seamless ‘infinity’ profile that is so luxurious and desirable these days.
The view from inside the home out to the Coral Sea. I want to live there! Simple, refined and uncluttered. You can see that the designers have used our balustrade around the total perimeter of the building, incorporating it into a beautiful, yet functional, maintenace pathway around the entire dwelling, making window cleaning a snap! Not a bad job to have to do in that setting…
