The client brief for this dual occupancy development was to get the largest homes possible on the 820m square block. The homes in this dual occupancy are 3 and 4 bedroom homes. Both homes also have their own study and 2 living areas.
A major factor in designing this dual occupancy was to ensure the homes whilst being large enough to suite a family, kept a sense of openness and that each house had a great outdoor area for entertaining and gardens.
Some of the challenges when designing a dual occupancy are the site constraints and local council limitations.
This dual occupancy was no different with a site that had a steep incline from the street to the rear boundary, and a number of issues that had to be overcome with Ku-Ring Gai council.
The existing residence was completely demolished.
The 1st residence in this dual occupancy development included a double garage, entry foyer, laundry and study on the ground floor. On the first floor there are 3 more bedrooms with an ensuite bathroom to the main bedroom, 2 great living areas, kitchen, bathroom and outdoor entertaining areas.
The 2nd residence in this dual occupancy development included a double garage, entry foyer, laundry, guest bedroom and a study on the ground floor. The first floor includes a master bedroom with ensuite, 2 more bedrooms, 2 great living areas, kitchen, bathrooms and outdoor entertaining areas.
Privacy has been achieved with both homes, whilst making the most of natural light and ventilation.
Both homes have a fantastic flow from living spaces to the outdoor entertaining areas giving occupants a fantastic “Lifestyle home”.
