We started with a 100 m2 site for a simple 2-storey box and a generous living area that flows into the kitchen at the ground floor. Simple forms mean fewer corners allowing for cost efficient framing and minimal construction waste.
An awning over the front door distinguishes the main entrance and can provide visual contrast if desired. An entire wall of windows captures natural light and brings them deep into the main living space. An excessive use of windows is one of the reasons modern design has been thought of as more expensive than traditional homes.
All 3 bed rooms are at the second floor with a roof garden as back yard or the master bed room. Total develop area is 150 m2.
