Seeking a practical yet stunning flood-resistant house design? Contact dion seminara architecture, Brisbane’s flood proof house design award winners.
dion seminara architecture won the prestigious LJ Hooker Grantham Flood Proof House Design. If you are looking for a house design that is flood-resistant, we have the expertise, knowledge and design skills to create an exceptional yet very effective flood free home for you.
Major flood events, such as the January 2011 Brisbane flood, remind us of the devastating effects that rising flood water cause. If you are thinking of buying a home, renovating or building in a flood zone, we are confident that we can help you. For a flood-resistant house design or possibly a flood-proof renovation, we would love to be of assistance and can assure you that our designs are not only ‘flood proof’ but are also tailored to your needs and will be a wonderful home for you to enjoy.
If you are seeking to build a new flood proof house, this allows us to start with a clean slate and design not only to prevent damage in the event of a severe flood but also to design to take advantage of your flood zone landholding. A truly successful architecturally designed home encapsulates any views, provides privacy, has living rooms orientated to the direction of the best possible aspect (usually north to north-east) as well as to the prevailing breezes. Just because you are seeking a flood-proof home, there is no reason why your architecturally designed home should not include all the advantages that a truly well-designed home can provide you.
Every flood-resistant house that we have designed is different depending on the needs and lifestyle of its owners and the advantages and disadvantages that the residential block provides. One thing that is constant however is that your flood-resistant design created by dion seminara architecture will ensure that should another disastrous flood occur, your home will be best equipped to withstand this event. Ideally, if your block allows, your new home should be located in an area that is above the flood zone line. This is often not possible, but if there are any variations on the steepness of the block, we would advise as to the optimal placement of your new home and rooms within your new home.
We use innovative designs and approaches that showcase our value of the environment. By incorporating sustainable design elements in our work, we can help you do your part in making your home more environmentally friendly.
