Relocated as part of the greater Lincoln Street Apartment Multi-residential development. Archr Design was engaged to work with Devcorp and assist with documenting the relocation and renovation of three 1911 character houses onto new sites. In Toowong, the third 1911 heritage house presents onto two street frontages. The large gradient on the new site presented challenges but created the opportunity for a mid-level landing at one of the street entrances.
Although appearing to have two entrances, one for each 'house', both entries converge to a central foyer, unifying the split forms. Placed on a roughly triangular site, the modern part of the home tapers into a terrace at the narrow end, affording views out across Toowong, like the prow of a ship.
