Surfers Paradise 1950s Home "Coolibah"


The Gold Coast is a place of constant renewal and rapid change, where the highrise is king.

This home in Surfers Paradise is a reminder of a time before the 1960s when this period of architecture would have been more the norm than the exception.

It's amazing to witness the rate of progress with massive highrise towers gobbling up every inch of space, and all in just over 50 years.

Homes such as this one featured are a social and architectural reminder of the cities architectural legacy.

Interesting features include the name of the home as well as the upper bay timber and glass windows.
