Jacobi House in Indooroopilly is what could be considered the modernist take on the typical Queenslander house. It was designed by Hayes and Scott Architects in 1957.
We visited this home when we did the mid-century interiors tour of Brisbane. The home is built on stumps, has a pyramid roof structure and wrap-around verandahs are used on three sides to capture the breezes.

It is a small home which is owned by a lovely couple who are relishing the challenge of restoring this piece of Brisbane modernism.
The kitchen is located in one corner of the box
