Jolly’s Lookout Residence

This Mt Nebo new home design is essentially a concrete structure with large concrete columns with buttress-like shapes.

These buttresses, along with the tower and large concrete wall at the entry, give the home a castle-like resemblance. Set high on the hill the house looks over the property as if it is a castle looking over its territory.

The external materials of the home are book-leaf stone to the front face of the house, off-form concrete in its natural state, aluminium and timber framed windows with expansive glazing and a mixture of gravel covered concrete roofs and copper sheet roofs (which will age gracefully like Customs House in Brisbane City).

From the entry, the house has a fortress wall. To the north and east, the house has glass walls, predominantly. External Venetians protect from the harsh sunlight in the morning, and large eaves overhangs ensure the home remains cool most of the day.

Beyond the fortress wall, you will ascend the entry steps through a bamboo forest; the first view of the tranquil gardens surrounding the home. While climbing the entry stairs, you also look across the reflection pools to a Japanese-style sand garden. This straightforward and structured garden provides order and discipline to the front of the home.
