The original home on the site, prior to the construction of One Wybelenna, was designed and built in the 1960's and soon became an iconic home in the local area of Brookfield, Brisbane.
After acquiring the property in 2008, the Sartains developed a design brief that sought to totally redefine the property. Whilst respecting the key elements of the original property's design, they sought to redesign and reconstruct what was once a family home into a spacious and tranquil wellness retreat. This incorporates stunning contemporary features, making ample use of bluestone and timber in the designs, abundant and varied gardenscapes, and the deliberate use of external areas to enjoy the sub-tropical climate.
By the end of 2009, director of One Wybelenna, Heather Sartain, had brought together a talented team for the project, including architect Shaun Lockyer with his newly formed Shaun Lockyer Architects, builder Bruce Mole from Thallon Mole Group, and the landscaping team from Boss Gardenscapes.
The results have been spectacularly successful. Shaun Lockyer introduced the concepts of the '70's Californian modernist architects into a dramatically elegant architectural design. In 2012, One Wybelenna's design won Commendation Awards at both the AIA Regional and State Awards, as well as a High Commendation in the national "Houses" Awards. And for the beautiful landscaping outcomes, Boss Gardenscapes won the prestigious "Residential 4" category and "Irrigation" category at the 2013 Landscape Queensland Construction Excellence Awards.
Heather's interest in health and wellbeing extends back many years, to her initial medical training as a registered nurse.
While travelling and working around the world, Heather's interest in the broader field of holistic health grew.
Her empathy with people's health and wellness issues and needs has evolved through her broad knowledge and experience gained from these years of living and working in rural and metropolitan communities of Australia and abroad.
Natural medicine and various holistic health studies over the years have also helped her to continue the development of her integrated, holistic philosophy towards personal health and beauty.
One Wybelenna now provides Heather with a wonderful opportunity to share her vision and philosophy with guests in a beautiful environment. For her this is made even more special by having personally overseen the full redevelopment of the property that has now become... One Wybelenna.
