How to build a home that maximises your location

With its tropical climate, relaxed atmosphere and breathtaking surrounds, Brisbane is certainly a beautiful city to call home.

But the privilege of building custom homes in Brisbane comes with great responsibility and at Adam Mason Homes we’re dedicated to crafting one-of-a-kind spaces that work seamlessly with their surrounding environments.

Keep reading to discover our top tips for building a home that maximises your beautiful Brisbane location.

Maximise views

Does your land include stunning views to the water, beach or lush greenery? Make the most of this! Don’t close your home off to the outside; instead, try to create as capitalise on these views as much as possible.

This could mean opting for expansive glass windows throughout your space or ensuring your home is oriented in a way that maximises your best views. A high-quality builder with experience building in Brisbane should be able to help you achieve this.

Create a bridge between in the indoors and outdoors

Your home’s relationship to the outdoors shouldn’t end with floor-to-ceiling windows. Establish a strong connection to the outside world through seamlessly connected indoor-outdoor spaces, alfresco kitchens and expansive balconies so you and your guests can enjoy all that your location has to offer – particularly in the summer months.

Take advantage of the coastal breeze

We’re lucky to have access to coastal breezes all year round in Brisbane. This is especially wonderful during summer when the breeze offers a cool respite from the heat and humidity.

Through smart design and orientation, you’ll be able to maximise your home’s access to this airflow, which will not only create a comfortable home environment, but will also be healthier for you and your family.

Highlight your environment with your home’s materials

If you truly want your home to work in harmony with the surrounding natural environment, we recommend incorporating natural materials like reclaimed timber and stone throughout.

Not only will this create a seamless connection with the outside world, it’ll allow you to celebrate the outdoor environment even within internal and private spaces like bedrooms and bathrooms.

Use your block to your advantage

While a sloping block can mean a more complicated build, the advantages often outweigh the challenges – especially when it comes to panoramic views. An experienced sloping block builder, like our team at Adam Mason Homes will be able to help you design a home that overcomes any challenges while providing you with incredible views of your surrounds.
