Skyview with Roof Terrace by Ownit Homes

The Skyview is a brand new two story home that features an awe-inspiring and innovative architectural advantage, a Roof Terrace, that gains street presence and takes this family home to the next level, literally. The project is situated in Pallara, QLD, Australia.


Entering the house, note the position of the entrance provides an uninterrupted and wide view down the centre of the home, encompassing the much desired open plan living and ensuring a seamless transition between interior and exterior is achieved by the detailing of the concealed stacker doors out onto the Alfresco at the rear. Meals, Family and Kitchen with Butler’s Pantry are accompanied by an additional Living area, Powder Room and Laundry to this level of this home.

The staircase opens up to the Lounge on the second floor and accommodates the Master Bedroom with an open plan Ensuite and Walk-in-Robe, and three additional Bedrooms all with Built-in-Robes. The Main Bathroom has been designed with functionality in mind, with separated Toilet/Bathroom areas to accommodate the needs of all family members and guests of the home.

Continuing outside from the Lounge upstairs, the Front Balcony provides access to the external open riser Staircase, cleverly designed through the roof, that proceeds up to the third level of the home and out to the acclaimed Roof Terrace™.

Taking full advantage of potential views, the concept of the Roof Terrace™ has been carefully designed to maximise the entertainment value of the house by creating a third outdoor living area without having to compromise any more of the backyard or land size. Crafted from heavily waterproofed and sealed external sheeting, the floor of the area is topped with 25mm artificial turf which comes as a standard inclusion when the Roof Terrace™ is added. The ingenious design of the Roof Terrace™ overall makes it economically priced and allows for the optional provision of a gas point for future barbeques and cooking, and a hose connection for ease of cleaning. By having this area open to the elements, the Roof Terrace™ complies with city council town planning restrictions, making this a completely self-assessable and unique architectural standpoint. This extra living space can be used for early morning yoga, family get-togethers or evening entertainers.

Practical as ever, storage opportunities abound over all levels of this two storey design demonstrating another critical element is accomplished for creating a home that will suit the requirements of a growing or established family. Delight in the provision of the rich inclusions that come standard to the home such as 40mm edged Smartstone benchtops and Italian 900mm ILVE appliances to the Kitchen, high quality fixtures and fittings throughout along with a standout street appeal with the front façade utilising a mixture of textures from render, sheeting and the newly acquired and innovative timber-grain embossed cladding material which comes in a variety of colours. As an optional extra, the choice is there to also have the free form stone feature wall to the front elevation.
