An adaptation of our 8 stars + Ordinary Miracle house to an irregular block, is another example of sustainable design & construction, to produce a truly low impact mainstream offering.
The scope of works was for a 4 bedroom plus study with spacious vaulted ceiling kitchen living that opens to where there will be a pool for the kids.
The house was set back to allow northern solar access, and the bedrooms allocated in southern wing, with the master suite having view of the swimming pool (when completed) to the north and chicken coop to the east. The trampoline will be found next to the media room, where access is via one of two grand sliding doors.
The entry hall encompasses all the storage need you would want, shoes, hats, coats, bags, helmets and more. The polished concrete floor warms from the sun in winter, and spreads throughout the living areas. Recycled timber flooring provides softness in the bedroom wing. Internally and externally, warm tones of timber used in conjuction with accent colours throughout. Such combination sits very well with the white polished concrete floor.
Designed for space efficiency and function, the laundry is next to the pantry, where the unsightly can be hidden with the sliding of the bifold doors. And the clothes line is right outside the glazed door from the laundry. Heat pumps and water tank all lined up tidily in the back, tucked out of sight. Garage door cladded in Abodo FSC timber closes flush with the wall.
In the previous house, when the train passes next to the property, all conversation has to stop. Now, within the calm modern interior of the new home, the train is but a visual transgression. Double Glazing on uPVC doors and windows provide both thermal and accoustic comfort.
