Considering a land purchase and planning to build? Feather & Lawry Design provide pre-purchase consultations to ensure our client’s project vision meets reality.
We have the expertise to advise on building orientation options, climate responsive design, energy efficiency, sustainability and preliminary research to assess regulations and requirements pertaining to the property. We can advise if other consultants will be required and can prepare an opinion of potential building cost with various material and finishing options.
This VIDEO was filmed during a site inspection on a stunning 100-acre block on the eastern side of Tabletop Mountain, overlooking the Lockyer Valley.
We discussed the feasibility of several building sites to take advantage of views, connect home to the landscape, capture prevailing breezes and minimize earthworks.
The site houses large amounts of natural stone, which can be integrated into the architecture to further settle the new dwelling into the landscape and be utilized for retaining walls and landscaping. The home will be off-grid so energy efficiency is also of vital importance and the bushfire overlay, landslip zones and environmental protection zones were also considered for the Conceptual Design process.
The block includes a large dam which provides a water supply and potential for recreational use and as a landscape feature.
We are excited at the possibilities this magnificent block offers and look forward to responding to all of the challenges and opportunities presented.
