There’s not much that is round in the house. Everything is square,” he said. However, it is the well-thought out details of this home that bring softness to the space. The kitchen area, which exudes style and warmth.Take the polished hardwood flooring made of Queensland spotted gum that runs throughout the three-storey home. Look up in the covered external spaces, such as the back patio and courtyards, and you find the same timber on the ceilings as well.“Putting those boards on the ceiling wasn’t easy to do,” Goran said, “but we wanted to make the house a little bit more interesting. Enjoy the outdoors, indoors in this covered courtyard.“We also wanted to build a home rather than a house, so apart from the geometric design and the quality of the materials, we wanted to create a sense of warmth, which we have done through the wood, the furniture and other features.”One thing you can’t help but notice as you look around the middle floor, and there are many things to catch your eye, is the shimmer of a bronze tree in an outside courtyard. The house has amazing city views from the balcony.“The architect wanted to create a Japanese garden in the area but I wasn’t ready to go that far, so I thought of a tree,” Goran said. “It was a big process to get it up to that level and in a custom-made box, but it’s a lovely area where you can sit and relax and be inside the house but feel like your outside.”Also on this floor is a fireplace, expansive kitchen and butler’s pantry, a living room, games room, library, laundry and study. From the kitchen, the dining room leads out onto a rear balcony where you can find an outdoor entertaining area and pool. The spotted gum floorboards are repeated on the ceiling of the outdoor areas.On the lower level is the garage, a large cellar and entertainment area with a pool table and cinema room. But that’s only a quarter of the space here. The other side of the floor is taken up by the guests quarters, which has its own entrance.“It was designed so be self sufficient., so guests can do their own thing,” Goran said. But when no one is staying we use the adjoining area as a gym space, so it’s always utilised.” The home’s large cinema room.On the top floor is where you will find three bedrooms, including the master, further living spaces and the Mirics’ favourite space in the house — the top balcony.“We have full city views and there is an outside bar, it’s absolutely amazing. We’ve held lots of parties with up to 60 people there. The house sits high in the suburb so it’s just an amazing area that gets nice breezes and amazing sunrises and sunsets. It’s my favourite place.”More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus9 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market9 hours ago Sleek lines are a feature of the this home.There are internal and external stairs joining the floors, but Goran said the house also had a void, should someone wish to install a lift.While the sheer size of the house has made it ideal during lockdown, Goran said the time had come to downsize. “There’s 750sqm of inside space, so it would be a little bit much for just myself and my wife,” Goran said. One cannot forget the outside pools.“Our two kids are of the age where they would like something that’s a bit more inner-city living. We enjoyed the house while the kids were younger, but now we want something like an apartment, maybe by the river.”The family originally chose to build in Coorparoo because they were already living and working on the south side of the city. Warm yourself by the fire of an evening.“We considered other areas such as Hawthorne or Bulimba, but we settled on Coorparoo because it was easier to get in and out of,” Goran said. “It’s close to the city and major highways, so it’s easy to go north or south from here, which is important,” he said.“It’s become more trendy over the past few years, since we built the house; lots of restaurants and bars are popping up. There’s also a real community feel, that is quite nice.”The house will be auctioned at noon on June 6 through Place Estate Agents, New Farm.center_img The gnarly Brisbane home with a skate bowl in the living room 39 Illidge Street, CoorparooThis architecturally designed house in Coorparoo is all about geometry.From the roofline outside to the internal spaces, it’s all cool, clean, straight lines and large open voids.Yet for such an open-plan minimalistic building, the home exudes nothing but softness and warmth, which was what homeowners Goran and Linda Miric were hoping for when they built it six years ago. The entrance of the home is on the middle level.Linda was heavily involved with the design, which took a year to complete, and it was brought to life by KP Architects.last_img read more

  • Clippers‘s Blake Griffin plays through illness; new President of Business Operations introduced

    first_imgDown the stretch Saturday, star power forward Blake Griffin made big plays for the Clippers to help them pull out a big victory over Western Conference foe Portland. Those plays were even bigger after considering Griffin was battling illness as well as double-teams all afternoon. Griffin was battling a stomach bug that he says started Friday night, sitting out Saturday’s game was never an option for him. Griffin managed to pour in 23 points, the second-highest total on the team, along with six rebounds. He made seven of eight attempt at the free-throw line. “People play sick all the time,” Griffin said. “I had low energy. I felt nauseous. It wasn’t too bad until I started running up and down, and that’s when I really felt it, but that’s besides the point. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error New Clippers owner Steve Ballmer feels he picked up another big win for the Clippers off the court. Before Saturday’s game, Ballmer introduced the newest member of the franchise: President of Business Operations Gillian Zucker. The team announced Thursday the hiring of Zucker, who comes to the NBA after nine years overseeing Auto Club Speedway. “There is a lot of things that can make someone qualified, but the most important thing is to find someone with enough intensity and enthusiasm and wisdom to do this job well in a very important time for the Clippers,” said Ballmer. “She’s an amazing person. I’ve has a chance to work with a lot of energetic people, very intense, very bright people at Microsoft, and she compares very favorable with some of the most enthusiastic people I’ve gotten to work with.” Ballmer said he interviewed around 25 to 30 people before choosing Zucker, who also has experience in the NFL, MLB and hockey.“Here I am, the destination, the NBA,” said Zucker with a laugh. “I think that having the perspective of a bunch of different sports, and the way that fans sort of embrace their teams is one that is pretty consistent across all of the sports. Why they are passionate and what they are passionate about, that changes a little bit and there are some nuances there.”Zucker has not only won over the new owner, but head coach Doc Rivers is also excited about the Clippers’ newest pickup. “I like her. I like her a lot. I just liked her immediately,” Rivers said before Saturday’s game. “I was immediately impressed with her. I do think it was time and we really needed a president in place, and I think that will help everyone.”center_img “The way we played and that unit played in the third quarter and down the stretch in the fourth was unbelievable.” While Griffin tried to downplay the importance of playing through illness, his teammates saw it as a major factor in defeating Portland. “It was an amazing effort,” Chris Paul said. “He looked like he was about to almost die at halftime. He was laid out in the locker room, but it shows how selfless he is and how he sacrifices for the team.“Any time he could have said, ‘I haven’t got it fellas,’ and we would have tried to pull it out for him. But he didn’t want to come out. “Without him,” Paul added, “we don’t win this game.” L.A. introduces Zuckerlast_img read more
