During the planning stage of La Fleur, three primary focal points were established to direct and drive the design and build of the house. This included future-proofing the house to allow for a multi-generational life span of the dwelling, maximising cross-ventilation throughout the internal spaces of the home, and a high energy efficiency rating.

This enabled the delivery of an incredibly spacious, open-plan style home that accommodates the vibrant and modern Brisbane lifestyle. La Fleur aims to seamlessly blend eco-conscious design with modern living and technology, pushing boundaries and challenging the construction model at every turn.

The dwelling minimises its carbon footprint by using environmentally-friendly materials such as increased fly-ash and recycled slag in concrete, Chain of Custody certified timbers, insulation manufactured from recycled plastic bottles, alternative cladding materials to standard FC sheeting, GreenTag Certified Italian porcelain tiles, and energy efficient lighting. La Fleur is a carbon minimised home, featuring 5 bedrooms (4 with walk-in robes and ensuites), a freshwater pool, sweeping city views, and dual Tesla powerwalls, to provide comfortable and uninterrupted living all year round.
