For this project, Geomancer Construction was briefed with creating a family-friendly home that would suit its surroundings and incorporate contemporary Hamptons-inspired features. Located in Graceville – one of Brisbane’s oldest regions – the abode exemplifies the area’s current trend towards redevelopment and modernisation, while also honouring its history.
To achieve the brief, Geomancer Construction’s in-house building designer worked closely with the clients through a series of detailed consultations, which ensured they were included in every stage of the design process.
As the residence sits within the Brisbane river flood zone and the city’s overland flood plan, the design’s habitable base was raised above street level. While this proved challenging, with expert planning a layout with exceptional flow was achieved. The elevated design also created an opportunity for a large storage space to be incorporated beneath the abode.
Featuring James Hardie Linea boards and decking, and COLORBOND roof sheeting, the home’s façade is a stylish inclusion to the neighbourhood. Continuing the aesthetic of the exterior, the generous kitchen, living and dining area exudes coastal charm; white and blue hues are present in abundance, as are sophisticated furnishings and a host of modern inclusions.
Designed for both functionality and enjoyment, the interior entertaining space offers views of the backyard pool and surrounding streetscapes. A void above the entertainment zone creates a sense of spaciousness. A connecting staircase adds visual interest, and leads up to the home’s top level, where bedrooms and a study nook are located.
The indoor and outdoor zones are seamlessly joined by sliding glass doors, which are conveniently positioned within the central hub. The doors lead to a covered deck, which is an ideal place for relaxing with family and friends regardless of inclement weather.
Specialising in custom design and architectural homes, Geomancer Construction was established two years ago by Mark Hancock. Having previously worked in government and commercial spaces, Hancock has extensive experience as a project manager, and expert knowledge of the industry. Hancock understands that although projects may appear similar, they are just as unique as their owners, and this philosophy is reflected in every aspect of Geomancer Construction’s work.
With an in-house building designer, and the ability to create 3D models that design and estimate each project, the company can quickly and accurately price and plan each build, ensuring clients have a solid understanding of their new home before construction begins. The company also completes lifts, raises and basements within custom homes.
Servicing anywhere in south-east Queensland, Geomancer Construction is a boutique building company, and only builds a select number of homes annually. This guarantees each development receives the team’s utmost attention, and a personal approach.
