North East View showing Entry and
Garage door with master bedroom suite at a slightly higher level. This difficult site
falling steeply away from the street in a south westerly direction presented many
challenges before this solution was finalised. Thank you to my clients who persisted
throughout the process.
South East View (also seen from street)
showing the suspended Garage at right with space below to build in a workshop later. In
fact the house has been designed with a stage 2 development of the areas of the lower
storey that are open at present. Note, a late change (not shown) is the change of cladding
of the Study area (centre-left suspended room) to stucco instead of the weatherboard
South West View showing the main deck
and some of the steel post and beam structure that eventually will fit within the wall
framing of the stage 2 rooms below. The angular shapes of the roof are primarily in
response to the shape of the landform and subsequent maximum height control of 7.5m above
any point. The highest roof plane misses the height plane by millimeters! The Hip was a
last minute change from another triangular gable end in response to maintaning the SW
views from the Master BR.
North West View showing Garage at far
left, Master bedroom with "crows nest" observation deck. Kitchen tucks in
below and front of the Master bedroom and is adjacent to a dining bay window and family
room to the right. The Family Dining room features a pitched ceiling with timber lining
and bifold doors access the deck. Utility rooms are accessed from a service porch nestling
under the bedroom.
