Deucker Residence, Helidon Hills

      Deucker Residence

  WHO:  Hank & Judith Deucker

  HOW: Architectural services commenced with a walk over the 625ac property to assess and resolve selection, with the Clients, of the most preferable building site. Design to specifically suit the selected site in the midst of verdant grassland and to address the peculiar brief requirements has resulted in a very functional family residence affording excellent cross ventilation and a most enchanting living space based on a traditional Mongol yurt.

  WHEN: 1993 - 1995

  WHERE: Sandy Creek Road, deep in the Helidon Hills north of Grantham, Queensland

  WHY: To provide a unique family home adjacent the to orchard. The ‘yurt’ shaped main ‘living’ space forming the corner of the home also serves as a meeting venue for the various organisations in which the occupants are participants.
The Owners were actively involved in the construction using timber cut from the property and local contractors.
This residence is located in an often hot area but it is always possible to find a cooling breeze on the expansive verandah. The single room depth wings also afford excellent natural cross ventilation.
