Every conceivable luxury

This project was the result of the combined dream of Matt and Caitlyn Lancashire alongside Channon Architects.

Mid-century Palm Springs modernism
This high-set house located in the quiet outer northern suburbs of Brisbane has made quite the impression, with its distinct style earning it the 2018 AIA Brisbane Regional Award. Typical of its style, the primary upper floor living areas were disconnected from the yard, whilst under the house was not at a legal height for habitable rooms – challenges our team wholeheartedly took on. This is an exciting new house design for inspiring clients, with decorative brick, hovering roofs, light-filled spaces and mid-century Palm Springs modernism colliding in Geebung, Brisbane.More
Contemporary finishes with old-Queensland charm
The team at Black Developments will never shy away from a challenge, which is why we were thrilled by the opportunity to rejuvenate this classic Paddington Queenslander. The aim was to keep the original character and charm of the home while adding a twist of modern finishes and details, while working around the tricky foundations of a 690-square-metre sloping block. A 10-metre-long custom glass roof and impeccable blackwood veneer joinery are just some of the standout features on this impressive project.
A Hamptons-inspired haven

Black Developments has combined design and quality construction to create this stylish dual-storey statement house in Camp Hill. With its cooling north-east aspect to the rear, a wide 20-metre-plus frontage and commanding facade with modern architectural lines, this home’s street presence is second to none. Unique, architectural and with an industrial edge, this home was designed and built to the highest standard.More
Spacious and refined
Once complete, this Alexandra Road project will be a shining example of how visionary design and high ambition have the power to transform a space. Shaun Lockyer Architects has come on board to turn what was once a 12-bedroom boarding house into a true architectural masterpiece.More
It’s not often that you are completely satisfied with the level of service, professionalism and quality of workmanship you receive when engaging someone’s services, particularly in the building industry. We engaged Tim Black of Black Developments to build our family home at 50 Crase Street, New Farm and he exceeded our expectations on every level. I have dealt with many builders in the past with a number of project I have been involved in, however I can tell you, Tim and his professional team completely exceeded both Caitlyn’s and my expectations on all levels. Building can often be an incredibly stressful process, however Tim was always was very professional in the way that he communicated with both of us and his commitment to making sure we were happy with every decision we made was always high priority. There wasn’t a day that went by that Tim didn’t keep us completely up to speed with everything and he has continued to well after the handover period. Whether it was the daily phone call or the comprehensive emails, we were spoilt to have such great service. There were a number of hard decisions and through Tim’s experience he was also able to give us the right recommendations. Tim runs a very open and transparent operation, and has a keen eye for details. When building a high-end architectural home, it is crucial your builder pays incredible attention to details and can work well with the architect and trades. He has a great relationship with all of his contractors and every aspect of the process was structured and came together with precision. I am an incredibly tough marker and the fact that we both came out on the other end unscathed is a true testament to Tim and his team. We absolutely love our home and if we were to go through the process again, we would engage Tim and Black Developments without hesitation (if he would work with me again!). I am only too happy to talk to anyone personally should they have any further questions about our experience and the process with Tim and Black Developments.
