House. Traditional Queensland peaked living roof with high ceiling and clerestorey
windows - along gallery entrance as well - cross breeze vents warm air. Client
loved the 'cool queenslander' (page 9) but this twist house was designed to
offer similar dramatic living spaces yet fit a lower budget . This inexpensive
twist house was designed to be built on a concrete slab with pigmented floor
colour (tiles could be added later) and cinder block walls with wooden truss
Plan. Notice that the clerestorey windows above cut diagonally across the
kitchen thereby including the kitchen under the peaked ceiling. As one walks
along the entrance gallery the 12 ft. high ceiling opens up into the peaked
living ceiling providing dramatic effect. Coming out of the kitchen there
are three closets on the right. The first is a pantry closet, the second a
telephone desk and notice board, and the third is a broom closet. There's
an entrance coat closet opposite the door into the gallery from the garage.
Walls and Lap Pool. The walled garden provides security round the lap pool.
Note the garden doors or gates between each bedroom garden - provides privacy
for the bedrooms. Click drawings top enlarge.
