This incredible new home nestled amongst tropical treetops in Cairns belongs to architect and builder Jesse Bennett, and his wife, interior designer Anne-Marie Campagnolo. Jesse and Anne-Marie run their own small design studio in Cairns, offering both architectural and interior design services, as well as selling their own range of handcrafted timber fixtures. The design and build of their own home was the ultimate all-consuming creative collaboration for this talented duo.
Their home was built from scratch on a sloping site, which presented significant challenges during the build. Both Jesse and Anne-Marie were closely involved in much of the construction process, employing sub-contractors where necessary.
The couple officially moved in to their home at the beginning of 2015, but throughout the build they camped onsite the property for many months! They say the best thing about living here is how the house integrates with the surrounding landscape, and embraces the tropical climate. ‘It makes us feel both inspired and thankful everyday,’ says Jesse.
