Small-lot Code & Character Code
The owners of this property approached their builders, Living Homes, with plans to demolish the existing pokey post war cottage and build a new contemporary home on the site. A steeply sloping site with northerly views over Kedron Brook, the challenge was to design a building which accommodated the slope and took advantage of the views.
The client had a general idea of what they wanted, so Frank (the builder) brought their graph paper sketches to us to develop them into a fully resolved design.
The house was split into two sections linked by a staircase with the rear section half a level above the front. The rear section was also offset to one side to open up views from the main bedroom on the top level. The front section of the house was dedicated to open plan living extending on to the large north facing deck.
