Chester Street Residence
Joe Adsett Architects
This renovation of a classic 19th century Queenslander in one of Brisbane’s oldest suburbs retains the site’s heritage character and adds a contemporary extension with swimming pool and courtyard.
The landscape concept responds to the home’s location in sub-tropical Brisbane and embraces a sculptural and hardy plant palette that underpins the subtle tones of the built form. A calming and serene landscape, dominated by silver-foliaged and white-flowering species, celebrates water and creates a retreat full of surprise for family and guests.
