Developer Rawcorp will build a nine-level apartment building at Robina golf course, The Glades.SEVENTY-SIX new apartments are set to be built at Robina golf course, The Glades.Developer Rawcorp will build a nine-level building on a 2865sq m site on Glades Drive featuring a mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments.There will also be 130 car parks, a roof terrace and communal open space.The development, yet to be named, will be one of the city’s only new residential medium-rise apartment projects to be built on a golf course. Designed by AGA Architects, the apartments will offer both residential use and long-term accommodation, with large internal floor areas and balconies overlooking the water and fairways.Rawcorp special projects manager Dan Rogers said the apartments would offer a rare lifestyle opportunity priced in the mid $300,000s through to the mid $500,000s.“The location is unbeatable,” he said.“You’re a nine iron from the golf course in one of the most picturesque residential communities on the Gold Coast.

Eagle Terraces, also designed by AGA architects, is a collection of nine terrace homes.Marketing Projects managing director Kyia Maidens, who is marketing Eagle Terraces, said demand for Robina property was underpinned by the suburb’s established major infrastructure. “Robina is currently experiencing high rental demand and a vacancy rate of less than one per cent, and with significant population growth projected over the coming years, this trend is likely to continue,” she said. “Rawcorp’s latest apartment project at The Glades has been designed with this in mind and it is being released at the right time to capitalise on the city’s future growth.” The Glades is within walking distance to Robina Town Centre and the Robina railway station.

B & B Residence in Paddington, designed by Hogg & Lamb. Picture: Christopher Frederick Jones.A Morningside home in the same category, designed by Kieron Gait Architects took the approach of adding to the highset 1920s house by connecting it back to its garden via a pavilion. The original Queenslander was now a “retreat” containing the bedrooms and a TV and craft room while the new “garden pavilion” houses the kitchen, dining room and living areas. “Connected by a covered, but open deck and link, it encourages breezes through the site and allows the family to feel like they are within thegarden domain.” Crescent House in Seven Hills, by architecture firm Deicke Richards with Steven Clegg Design. Picture: Christopher Frederick JonesArchitect Jolyon Robinson, whose design for Avonlea saw it short-listed for the new house over 200sq m award as well as the sustainability gong, said the project was bittersweet for him as the property was on the site of his childhood home.“That house was probably the most special to me because our family home used to be on that site when we were kids,” he told The Sunday Mail. “The old Queenslander burnt down nine years ago and I was commissioned by the new owners to design them a new family home. Terrarium House in Highgate Hill by architecture firm John Ellway. Picture: Toby Scott.Also in the category was JB House in Capalaba by Reddog Architects which looked at reutilising the existing home and reconfiguring it for passive environmental control, taking a “simple approach” that revealed “points of intersection between new and old and use ordinary materials to create extraordinary spaces”.“This extension to a single storey, brick veneer home in Brisbane’s east is an example of a new wave of alterations and additions projects in the city’s suburbs,” the firm said in its statement on the project.

Yeronga House by Tim Bennetton Architects. Picture: Shantanu Starick.Smaller renovations under 200sq m out of Queensland also caught the judges’ eyes, three of which were now in the shortlist for nationals including Terrarium House in Highgate Hill by John Ellway, where a 100-year-old cottage was jettisoned into the 21st century with a sympathetic upgrade that involved inhabiting the undercroft. ”The house began as an exercise in pragmatics,” was how the firm described the challenge.

Picture: Christopher Frederick Jones.The fourth house to make the cut for its “over 200sq m” renovation work was Yeronga House by Tim Bennetton Architects in Brisbane. The low key Queenslander was transformed with a new pod or studio created to the rear of the house, separated by a walkway and series of decks going to the garden. They even raised the level of the garden to avoid the use of all balustrades. Avonlea in Eumundi gave Robinson Architects a chance to make the most of the site. Picture: Nic Granleese.“It was a labour of love. I obviously knew the site but hadn’t been there for 20 years. “The old Queenslander was beautiful but hot in summer and cold in winter. Having a blank canvas and the ability to get all the fundamentals right like orientation and windows was so great.”Of the seven Queensland renovations that made the national cut, four were for alteration and addition over 200sq m, including Seven Hills property Crescent House by Deicke Richards and Steven Clegg Design. The home was also short-listed in the garden or landscape category nationally. Avonlea in Eumundi, designed by Robinson Architects.

Glenlyon Estate in Ashgrove by Push Architecture and Louise Walsh Interior Design. Picture: Maree Homer.The idea was to open the Noosa home “to the bush, ocean, stars and sky”, with hardwood screens allowing the owners to control light, breezes, privacy and views. “The long thin plan ensures the building is only one room deep to maximise, ocean views, cross ventilation and natural light. The house layout allows the family to come together to cook, eat and relax, but also the separation of more quiet spaces for reflective time.” Tinbeerwah House in the Noosa hinterland by Teeland Architects.
