We have bought a property to knock down the existing building and build a new home.
Consisting of an expansive area to the rear, we intend to build a 4 bed home on this back block and a smaller 2 bed home on the front thin block in the position where the current house is.
Main Home - Back large plot - Things we need
Pool fence as per Aus law
We enjoy high ceilings and would like areas of the build to be 4 to 5 m high.
We must pay attention to neighbours to the left and right of the long thin section of the plot and not build too high to obstruct their sunlight
Kitchen with 4 -5 m island bar to sit stools at
Butlers pantry behind the kitchen
Laundry with storage.
Access to outdoor area with clothes lines for drying
Master bed opening to the pool area
Master bedroom to have walk-in robes and ensuite with bath and shower
2 bedrooms with built-in wardrobes and ensuite shower and toilet
1 spare bedroom
Large living space of at least 5 x 6 m, this should be high ceilings
Large dining area adjoined to the kitchen area.
Toilet for main area of house
Large black steel look aluminium doors will be used to connect the inside and outside of the home.
We may use bifold doors to open up large areas or use more classic doors to open individual areas, see pictures for examples.
Light concrete floors are an option.
Nice to have for main building but not essential
Dark home theatre room of approx 16 square meters
Music and games room of approx 12-15 square meters

We need a garage at the rear.
Garden in between main house and front house
Line of sight between garden and pool behind main house

We want an architecturally interesting and beautiful home, adding boxes as rooms is easy, we need to gat a layout that is more exciting and keep an eye of affordable build, finishes etc.
The house will be built using timber frames and not brick.
We would like a brick feature wall inside.
We would like to see your portfolio to show you have experience with this sort of work.
