However, these were overcome very early on in the process and the builders, M2 Construct, did a fantastic job, completing the project on time and on budget,” Mr Lockyer said.“Architecturally, this project represents a great example of how with relatively limited means, something interesting can be achieved.” The new build cost about $1 million.Combined with a couple of full-height walls featuring large circular apertures, the design of the outdoor room adds depth and intrigue to the property without inhibiting the flow of space and light. “The clients were interested in mid-century modern work, referencing white painted brick specifically, but they also wanted to contextualise the house in the subtropics,” Mr Lockyer said. “To this end, we proposed a mix of simple modern forms with some playful combinations of simple, timeless materials.”He said they chose a random selection of bricks from PGH Bricks and had them painted in Dulux’s Lexicon Quarter Strength.
