This home design packed with clever, sophisticated design features, creating a luxurious and innovative feel to this starters market home, therefore rewarded with a Master Builders Award.
The clients brief was really open, but it had to be built within a tight budget. (First home-owners)
Modern, different and contemporary. Fresh, spacious and needs to have 4 bedrooms for resale value but they would like to have some rooms multi-functional for office space or media room.
We took their love for nature and entertaining as a starting point and created an indoor-outdoor undercover area with big glass sliding doors and wrapped the house around it.To keep within the budget, we create a sense of space by making all the ceilings raked. (Height & light makes all area’s look a lot bigger)
Raked ceiling also create an options of louvres up high, bringing in lots of light and creating cross ventilation/airflow Opening the entrance door, the design enabling to look over the kitchen onto the garden wall, covered with white wisteria.
Big sliding doors opening up to the outdoors, disappearing into a wall cavity, so with no doors visible, creating a uninterrupted outdoor connection.
A Master bedroom design with full wall-sliding, floor to ceiling wardrobes. A glass block wall with 2 rain-showers which created dividing and connection of ensuite and master at the same time.
By using different materials on the floor, walls and/or windows in the 4e bedroom, it has been easy to give this room a multi-functional touch.
