Our clients wanted to create more space for their rapidly growing family. The brief was to create an upstairs bedroom, robe, ensuite and possibly study.
The major challenge we faced with this project was the width of the site. The site was just over 7.6 meters wide 313m2. With such a small block the only way we could design was up. However, Bayside’s siting requirements on a site this size demanded side boundary setbacks of approximately 3.5m leaving us no room at all to build an upper level.
On investigating the neighbouring homes it became apparent that many of the blocks of similar size were 2 storey.
Based on this fact we decided to apply for special permission from the Bayside Planning Department in variation to this regulation.
Our application was accepted, allowing us to go forward.
Our Highett clients wanted to create more space for their rapidly growing family and for the future possibility for older family coming to live with them.
The home was a 2 bedroom post war clinker brick home typical of the area. The client wanted to build a sustainable home that respected the surrounding environment and existing character of the neighbourhood.
The Client wish list included;
Below is our design.
