New Dwelling Contemporary
The client had an opportunity to build their dream forever home and were looking for a contemporary 3 bed house with modern open plan living. Since it is set in such beautiful surroundings the materials used should be sympathetic to this and the layout of the house should take advantage of the beautiful vistas as much as possible. The client is also a car enthusiast and wanted to include a 3 back garage/ carport.
It’s fair to say that a picture paints a thousand words and this proposal, with it’s 360 degree first floor terrace, is by far one of the most unique house design
’s we have been involved in to date. The dwelling is to be set in one and half acres hectares of wooded terrain and the client’s wish was to complement the natural surroundings with the timber cladding, whilst taking on a very contemporary design. The design also had to take into account passive detailing along with some careful consideration of the surface water run-off from the upper floor balcony. We are looking to hide the downpipes within the wall of the house to give a clean, gutter free look. The owners of the land are looking to create their dream family home along with substantial storage for a car collection and this is reflected by the fact that there are only three bedrooms to the dwelling. Choosing your house design is one of the most exciting phases of building a new home. Essentially, the key attributes of a great home include liveability, functionality, convenience, comfort and style. The layout and the way the space functions are key to a comfortable home and we have considered that this being a family home, it’s important that the home grows with the family. It must also retain its functionality and comfort for the time frame it’s intended to stay for.
