123 OLD BURLEIGH ROAD, BROADBEACH
REDEFININGTHE QUEENSLAND BEACH HOUSE
Each of OBR’s fourteen homes is derived from the concept of the Queensland beach house, a typology synonymous with living on the Gold Coast – characterised by the following key concepts:
- The separation of public and private functions, into living and sleeping ‘pods’
- A permeable facade, with access to landscape and greenery
- Arriving at the Verandah: a space which mediates the transition between public and private, but is also designed as habitable breezeway – an indoor/outdoor dwell space that takes advantage of views, light, and the sub tropical climate
ARTIST LIZZIE GILL
Lizzie Gill is a mixed media artist. Her work explores retro nostalgia in a contemporary context. Through a variety of mediums she illustrates a time warp, composed of everyday life, human agency and the disingenuous. The disingenuous nature of her work pertains to one’s ability to mislead through dress, speech or manner. Growing up in the digital age, this deception is often conducted behind a series of computer screens. This manipulation is also evident in her process. Her canvases are comprised of mixed media and oil, a process first approached through digital collage and then translated onto canvas.
