Inside one of the homes featured at Brookfield’s Street of Dreams display.With space becoming a costly luxury in Brisbane, developers and homeowners are becoming increasingly savvy when it comes to converting every square inch into functional space. And they are not being lax about the luxe factor.Brookwater general manager Nick Kostellar said display homes within its Street of Dreams precinct gave developers the opportunity to showcase the latest trends and provide potential buyers with the chance to see their dreams as a reality.“We wanted to cater for that niche market … the million dollar buyers,” he said. “We found there was a gap in the market and wanted to give people a one-stop shop where they could see so many ideas and designs in one street.”PS Designer Homes, Metricon and Steve Parcell Building Services have completed homes within the display village, with Stylemaster to come on-board next year.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus23 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market23 hours agoMr Kostellar said the display homes showed the latest trends and innovations in luxury home construction, with buyers able to access Brookfield’s own architect.“Buyers may like a concept from one home and ideas from another or they may come to us with their scrapbook of ideas and our architect can work with them and the builders to make that happen,” he said. “By having some of those concepts on display, buyers can really see how they add to livability, and then we can work with them and their budget.”A rooftop terrace is one of the features of the PS Designer Homes display. Rooftop terraces feature in the display by PS Designer HomesWith a spa and entertainment zone overlooking the golf course, Mr Kostellar said the rooftop terrace benefited from the views and breeze, and made use of traditionally wasted roof space.“Not everyone can, or wants to, have a big backyard,” he said. Other trends include voids and glass panelling to draw in light, and water-feature or resort-style pools. The Scandi look was proving popular, as was the modern industrial and Hampton’s styles.
