Coorparoo III

The Coorparoo III Project

As is so often the case, children seem to emerge  as young adults almost overnight and we find  ourselves having to adapt our homes and  entertaining areas to the lifestyle requirements this change brings. One minute they are happy to sit  around with mum and dad, the next, they are looking for their  own space — as was the scenario for homeowners Bruce and  Sonya and their three daughters at their Brisbane abode. Their backyard was modest and contained a reasonably sized  garage in one corner and the remainder was predominantly  lawn, with a gentle slope that the girls had made great use of  in previous years. However, the need for a more substantial  entertaining area and a separate outdoor retreat was now  desired. The owners also wanted to retain some of the lawn  area for the odd game of badminton plus the addition of  attractive gardens to frame the space.
