North Arm Project
“We have been very happy to have chosen Steve Campbell Design to create an extension to the existing home on our property. Steve incorporates eco friendly and sustainable designs as well as using feng shui to create harmony within the house. We have been very pleased at the quality of the finished product, it looks and feels amazing. What was put on paper as the design exceeded our expectations in the creation of something we shall enjoy for many years to come, it certainly has the WOW factor. Steve was very easy to work with and very patient with our changes to the original plans.”
Leonora Raven Secretary of Subud Sunshine Coast Inc.
The Subud Sunshine Coast Group wanted to create a space for their weekly spiritual practice.
They found a beautiful property nestled in the Noosa Hinterland that suited their needs with sheds that could be converted into halls and an existing house that could be the main centre for the group.
The brief was to add a west wing (Guest Quarters) to the existing dwelling to accommodate interstate and international visits from all over the world whom will be visiting and staying at the spiritual centre. The existing dwelling was a bit outdated and in much need of a more modern look that also needed to blend in with the new guest quarters to create the impression of one large centre that can be shared by many at any given time. To house as many extra people (thus two extra large bedrooms and a lounge room that can be converted into another bedroom) as possible in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.
The centre has a hybrid system that generates most of their power, there is no need for air conditioning as there is plenty of insulation in walls and roof cavity, ceiling fans and louvre windows also help keep a comfortable temperature in the centre. There are many inside & outside areas where one can relax, unwind and enjoy the beauty of the natural surrounding environment.
With the generous help and experience from philanthropist Renee Goetz who is now a permanent resident on the property the project was a real delight to work on and everything went like clockwork.
