Shaun Lockyer Architects are behind the 'Terraced House,' a family home located in Brisbane, Australia.

The designers concerned themselves with making sure the home had optimal lighting, high functionality and a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere fit for a family. All three of those requirements were more than adequately met, with the architects successfully creating a warm and luminescent residence that facilitates a well-rounded family life.

The architects groomed the landscape by situating an elevated courtyard to the side of the renovated post-war cottage. The home itself expresses a range of different materials, from concrete and timber to blockwork, juxtaposing the original structure. Despite the various materials, the home presents a unified, harmonious front; everything complements each other perfectly, whether it's old or contemporary in style.
