South Coast

When a sweet but tired 1950s beach shack with absolute water frontage came up for sale, our very own architect, Harry Poulos just knew he could turn it into a dreamy family holiday home.

Brisbane architect Harry Poulos and his wife Georgia adore the beach. Queensland born and raised, they both grew up holidaying by the ocean and share a love of salty air, sand between the toes and horizons of blue-on-blue.

They’ve always enjoyed family getaways on the Gold Coast and had often fantasised about owning a holiday home on that famous stretch of golden sand. A couple of years ago they began casually casting around for a place where they could create an escape for themselves, their daughters, and the family pooch Winston (Winnie), a tan-coloured groodle.
