Gold Coast Home


Mel and Brian built their dream home in on a quiet street between the ocean and the rainforest on the Gold Coast of eastern Australia. Mel describes their home’s style as ‘a purposeful injection of Canada into an Australian home’. The majority of the home was designed as one big open space, made for entertaining and making music; the kitchen flows into the dining space, which flows into the living room, which flows into the open deck overlooking the mountains.

Just over two years ago Mel and Brian turned the key to their home for the first time, excited but the countless evenings of making music, sipping wine, hosting friends, and being together as a family. A lot of the homes that I photograph contain a lifetime of memories, they have seen children grow and lives change. The piano house however, sits at the beginning of of what will no doubt be a long and beautiful history.
