D & B Cooper (Brisbane House)
“We reached out to Slater Architects after seeing an article of their Rural House in a magazine.
Being based in a different state it could have presented challenges, but it was never a problem for Cathy. It never limited our selections and every time Cathy visited, she brought along a (heavy) suitcase full of samples. With four children, the floor plan really suits our busy life. As the children have grown into adults the house continues to accommodate their changing needs.
We have comfortably entertained up to 50 people. We love that we can open the doors and there are indoor and outdoor rooms that flow beautifully into one another. From the road, the house sits elegantly on the top of the hill and the proportion of the house in relation to the land is perfect.
We are so thrilled with our home and receive many compliments. Cathy really has created our dream home. We never tire of the beautiful timber trusses, stone fireplace, and so many more of her design elements.
One of our favourite things to do is sit in our loggia and watch the horses graze in the paddock in front of us. It goes without saying that she was very easy to work with and very respectful of our ideas.”
