Queensland Style House

Queenslander buildings are primarily of timber construction and can be low or high-set, one to two storeys. They are typically ‘tripartite’ in sectional composition; underfloor (stumps), primary rooms (can be two levels), and roof. All have one or more veranda spaces, a sheltered edge of the building that is typically only part-enclosed and used as another living zone. This consideration for climate is the defining characteristic of the Queenslander type.
