105 V is a contemporary renovation and extension of an original pre‐war cottage in New Farm, Brisbane. The design incorporates a dramatic screening device designed to offer sun protection, privacy and intimacy of space.
A large central void joins the new and the old parts of the house and allows for North sun to flood the living space. The house has a deliberately minimal and restrained material palate with a highly articulated timber and steel bridge as a feature within the space.The project was completed in February 2012.
