Modern Revival of a Classic Queenslander

This classic Queenslander in Sherwood has been restored and adapted to suit the modern family lifestyle.

Key original features were restored from the pre-1946 building, and throughout the upper level, the hoop pine floors were retained along with original windows. Energy efficiency was improved by achieved by installing insulation, upgrading glazing, adding solar power and rainwater harvesting. The new living area now opens out to the rear deck and pool, creating a larger entertaining area. An overall lovely upgrade for a Queensland icon, from Bosanquet Foley Architects and Thirdson Construction.
