Belmont History and Architecture

Belmont is approx 12 km south-east of Brisbane CBD. The Belmont estate was created in 1876. Over time it grew and in 1901 became known as the Belmont Shire.

Homes in Belmont vary from luxury homes to Queenslanders with massive verandahs, to townhouses and everything in between. If you are looking for a home on a large block then Belmont may be right for you.

The requirements for this renovation included a new entertainment pavilion with guest bedroom, separate terrace and kitchen as well as new ensuite/main bath and laundry.

Design Concept

A new wide terrace was built from the clients existing lounge and dining area. This space has a new insulated and lined skillion roof to maximise light and natural ventilation by taking advantage of the north-east breeze.  For a higher degree of waterproofing louvres and an inlay roof were built.

A new pavilion-addition accommodating one extra bedroom and a large entertainment room now flows out to a covered terrace overlooking the pool. The new entertainment and terraced areas relate to the existing pool location and the remainder of the backyard.

The majority of the new windows face north-east and are casement windows and louvres to capture maximum airflow.
