Boomerang House is the stunning home of architectural husband and wife team, Hayley and Joe Adsett. Designed to their own brief, the luxurious home has functional family living at the core of each meticulously considered decision.
Set within the inner-city suburb of Ascot, Brisbane, the home was built on a 1200sqm block by high-end residential Brisbane builder/developers GRAYA as a masterpiece of design and craftsmanship.
Boomerang consists of five bedrooms, including a parents' retreat, five bathrooms, a four-car garage, underground wine cellar, upper-level lounge and a light-filled downstairs living area. The enormous square block also facilitates a 9-metre swimming pool and tennis court for the Adsett family.
Grand in scale and impressive in nature, Boomerang was one of the biggest builds undertaken by GRAYA.
“This was one of the biggest homes Graya has built and we’d never completed a home with a tennis court. It was a great challenge and we enjoyed watching it all come together,” said Rob Gray from GRAYA.
While generous, the property still manages to feel relaxed enough to accommodate family living. Curved geometry defines the inside space, resulting in an organic, natural sensation throughout the home. Statement architectural features are layered throughout the interior in a palette of fresh white and soft grey, juxtaposed with striking furnishings, while floor to ceiling windows and sliding doors enable natural light to flood the downstairs living area, maximising the connection with the outdoor space.
“This was Joe Adsett’s personal home, so he wanted it to be functional for his family, whilst bringing the inside out and connecting key interior and external design elements,” says Gray.
The defining feature of the downstairs living area is a helical stairway that joins two floors of the residence. This magnificent sculptural masterpiece was created with CSR Gyprock’s premium Flexible plasterboard. Designed to impress, Gyprock Flexible enables specifiers, designers and installers to easily create architecturally defining moments such as curved walls, ceilings and stairways.
“This was the first curved stairway we created, Gyprock Flexible helped to make this process seamless,” said Gray. The 6.5mm thick plasterboard sheets have an enhanced gypsum core, which is designed to bend for small radius curves, enabling designers and installers to create convex curves with a 250mm radius and concave curves with a 450mm radius.
The stairway culminates in a beautiful wraparound library, complemented by a circular skylight, which enables light to fill a spectacular void that traverses the three-storey home. Impressive, impactful and breath-taking, the skylight and void were also created using Gyprock Flexible, demonstrating how elevated design thinking, coupled with great craftsmanship, can shape basic building materials into modern masterpieces.
The L-shape configuration of the home takes advantage of the large block, and also enhances indoor-outdoor living. The practical configuration enhances the liveability as the separate living spaces all connect to the pool, garden and tennis court.
With oversized windows featuring throughout, the remarkable light-filled property is grand and impactful on all levels, yet responds to the dynamic of family life and living.
