This Brisbane Home Features Apertures Within Its Facade

Shaun Lockyer Architects designed the 'Palissandro House,' a Brisbane home located in the city's New Farm suburb.

The architects' main objective when designing this contemporary residence was to ensure that its historical context remained intact, even whilst endeavoring to create and implement progressive design principals. In that way, it was all about striking a balance.

The defining feature of the home is its rosewood facade, which was carved out to reveal apertures that take better of advantage of both the natural light and beautiful views of the Australian neighborhood. Playing with light and shadow, the facade offers an arresting visual dynamic that can be appreciated whether you're hanging out inside, or passing by on the street.
