Location: 62 Marina Quay, Bluewater Marina, Trinity Park, Cairns Queensland

Client brief: Well in this instance we were the clients, as we created this home as a spec build to show what we can do! We live in this marina already and really appreciate it’s proximity to water and the outdoors for fishing and adventure, so when this odd shaped block down the road with views out to the water came up for sale, we decided to create a home with all the elements we would want. Top priorities were flexible rooms/spaces, private upstairs balconies to take in the views, a spot to cool off in the summer, a cool space to entertain (and to hide the mess that comes with entertaining!), a double garage with additional storage and work space area for tinkering, a feeling of space and openness, a sustainable and naturally cooling design….. oh, and just a bit of ‘wow’.
