McLean Architects worked very closely with this family client and their specialist medical team from Southport Hospital to design a sensitive but stimulating living environment for a severely disabled little boy and his team of 24 hour medical carers.
The child’s lively interest in ‘pirates’ was our design catalyst for a ‘flotsam and jetsam’ theme for this new home and helped to maintain his active involvement throughout the whole project.
Ideas such as a treasure chest with the lid lifted up are reflected in the kitchen dining room roof sitting at an angle with clerestorey glazing.
This project has featured in the ‘Herald Weekend Living’ supplement, ‘Homebuilding & Renovating’ magazine and was shortlisted for a Saltire Design Award in 2004.
