Modern Home Collection

No. 12

SHINING A NEW LIGHT ON COMPACT LIVING. This home is a study in expansiveness - a compact house that does not put a squeeze on contentment. Typically, long & narrow houses are dark in the center. This can be especially true on the upper floors where bedrooms are pushed to the outer ends – resulting in rooms that are usually too small, and unpractical. Not so, with Plan No.12. In this house, natural light abounds with the addition of a courtyard casting light deep into the house. And if that’s not enough, there’s even a rooftop patio.

Flexibility for a modern lifestyle.

Open and flexible, the space supports a spontaneous city lifestyle. This plan is extraordinarily modular; accommodating anywhere from two-seven bedrooms. Spaces can be used for myriad purposes and can shift as life does. What’s more, this design could be used to make a duplex, if two plans were mirrored back to back. Alternatively, it would make a terrific two-storey house should you be searching for a smaller ‘semi-detached’ dwelling.

Open up your home and let the sun shine in.

The most common challenge with a narrow house is that only the front and rear rooms are daylit, while the interior spaces are all but left in the dark. The incorporation of an inlet courtyard turns this preconception on its head, allowing for multiple lifestyle benefits that simply aren’t available in conventional narrow lot houses.

With this newfound light, your typical front living room or dining room is now able to be relocated into the centre of the house – still with plenty of daylight, but now with a more intimate and private setting that opens onto the courtyard. This allows for a true entrance that functions as an entrance should. Instead of greeting visitors directly in your living room or dining room, you can now have the space and separation to greet and control your visitors’ access to the house – with twice the amount of usual closet space.

Form and function working together.

The living room, dining room and kitchen are generously proportioned, with the right balance of connectivity, privacy and fluidity of movement. Pull your floor to ceiling doors wide open to expand these rooms onto the rear deck or out to the courtyard.

The kitchen layout stretches into the dining room, with an uncommon amount of storage for this type of plan. With space for a large family style table, this plan provides ample room for entertaining. You’ll enjoy plenty of space for multiple people to work without bumping into each other, and everyday tasks like setting the table will be easy, with everything within reach.

The upper floors also take advantage of the opportunities that the courtyard offers. No longer do just the front and rear bedrooms have windows. Now, nearly every room has floor-to-ceiling windows that let in daylight and afford views. Furthermore, you can now have bedrooms in the centre of the plan (where with typical narrow plans, you can’t). The result is a design that doesn’t feel the need to cram everything in, but rather contains bright generous spaces, that can breathe, while still having all of the amenities on your wish list – like fully-appointed ensuites, a home office, a fitness room, or a private rooftop terrace.

The little house with no limits.

The third floor also maximises the benefits of the internal courtyard. There’s a level of openness which allows the floorplan to be programmed freely. Whether it be a home office, fitness room, art studio, bedroom, or family room, flexibility and amenity are aligned.

Customization

Just because your home’s plan may be preconceived, doesn’t mean its features are presupposed.

This is our most flexible floorplan with many living options to support the diverse needs of any family. Choose to have all the bedrooms on the second floor, freeing up the third floor for a home office, gym, or studio. Conversely, you could move the bedrooms to the third floor, so that the semi-common areas are closer to the main floor. Our architects are at your fingertips to make alterations and your dream home a reality.
