Adapting the Hamptons Look to The Brisbane Climate!

Inspired by the luxury holiday houses found all across The Hamptons in New York, Hamptons architecture is now found worldwide! The Hamptons look has proven especially popular here in Australia, likely due to our live of indoor-outdoor living (something the Hamptons look is very compatible with) as well as the classy and timeless aesthetic the homes offer.

Creating a Hamptons look in Brisbane will require modifications to the design so the home suits our local climate – this is where we come in! Let our experienced architects transform your home into the custom-designed Hampton’s style home of your dreams.

Not only will you have a home which is beautiful, but also one that is tailored to suit our environment, ensuring the best fit for you on energy consumption and lifestyle. Our specialist team can guide your project through the design phases, getting the building approvals, and we can even provide project management all the way through to completion!

Adapting to Your Hamptons Style Renovations

Benefit from 30+ years of experience!

Dion Seminara and his team of architects are experienced in transforming a range of residential styles into bespoke Hampton’s Style homes. We do this while maintaining any elements of the original house which were suitable for our climate. Are you in the market for a Hampton’s Style new home or renovation? Let our team deliver the house of your dreams!

Hamptons style renovations to Queenslander homes, as well as Hamptons style new house designs, have become increasingly popular throughout South East Queensland over the past few years. Whilst these homes are popular summertime retreats of the rich and the famous in New York, they are not exactly suited to our subtropical climate without some design adjustments. Careful planning and design adaptation is required to create a Hampton-style home that is stunning to look at, and practical for our climate.

Hamptons Style Home Features

Hampton-style homes get their name from the beach houses located in the prestigious towns of The Hamptons, Long Island, New York. The Hamptons look has spread worldwide in recent years, likely as a result of the style’s elegant and impressive look, combined with it’s indoor-outdoor lifestyle.

Common features include:

  • Timber exteriors are typically painted white
  • Gable-styled roofs with wide balconies
  • Large windows, including feature bay windows
  • Large openings connecting indoors to outdoor undercover areas
  • Timber-framed bi-fold glass doors
  • Wide verandahs and other undercover areas
  • A focus on indoor/outdoor living and entertaining
  • Kitchens tend to be elaborate and centre-pieces

Our holistic approach to design and architecture

Hamptons style homes are designed so that the outdoor undercover areas effectively become an extension of the home’s interior. Movement in and out of the home is effortless, and often unnoticeable, as the openings are wide and the floor finishes tend to carry through from the interior into the wide verandahs. The floor finishes themselves can be polished timber or tiles.

We find that the key to creating the perfect Hamptons style home is to ensure that all parts of the property are designed to work together and compliment each other. Our holistic approach to exterior architecture, interior design, and landscape design perfectly lends itself to this home style.

Hamptons style meets Queenslander style

Hamptons style merged with Queenslander homes is a union first envisioned by experienced Queenslander architects – and the combination produces stunning offspring!

There are plenty of similarities between the two styles of homes, but it’s the differences that make them such a natural match.

By taking the best design elements of one, and combining them with the benefits of the other, architects like us make it possible to create a truly stunning Hamptons-style home that excels in the Brisbane climate.

Adapting the Hampton Style for Queensland

Whilst Hampton-style homes are often called ‘summer homes’ in New York, they don’t lend themselves to our subtropical climate – at least not in their traditional form.

To get the Hampton’s style look in a form that suits our climate year-round, you need an architect who has the skills to blend the Hamptons style of home with the eco-friendly functionality that South East Queensland requires.

As a firm, we have a great understanding of eco-friendly home design, cross-flow ventilation, and how to take advantage of natural lighting. When we combine these architectural principles, we can adapt Hampton’s style to perfectly suit the Brisbane climate!

Our ability to create seamless connections between interior and outdoor living spaces is essential to creating a successful Hamptons-style home design. Your lifestyle is the main consideration in any home design dion seminara architecture undertakes. As experienced Hamptons-style architects, we can create a master plan for your home design – so you have the flexibility to build in stages if required.
