his home was one of the first to be built in the Bluewater Canal Estate. The client, an award winning builder really wanted to create something special, to showcase their workmanship and creative talents. The outlined brief and expectations were comprehensive. The house was planned over two levels with interplay of voids creating playful interaction between the two. An extensive palette of materials was employed – stone features, parapet wall, stainless steel gutters and downpipes which at the time weren't common in Cairns. With its high ceilings, louvered glass panels and wide overhangs to all faces, it is both comfortable in the hot humid summers and wet season weather.
