Architect, Bud Brannigan’s own house is set on a narrow, lushly vegetated block in the suburban Brisbane suburb of St. Lucia. The house is a contemporary interpretation of the traditional Queensland elevated lightweight timber house, a building type ideally suited to the sub-tropical climate.
The design takes advantage of the economy, environmental performance and the natural warmth and beauty of modest timber products, and uses them in a simple and ingenious way. Fittingly, the house won the 1994 Robin Boyd National architecture Award for housing.
