The Brief

A dual occupancy designed for two owner-occupiers, our clients wanted to maximise the site by building two modern residences with luxury touches like a small pool and zen garden to suit the lifestyles of the families.

Our Approach

Designed to give both some individuality, the facades and floor plans are completely different, customised to suit both families but also give the illusion of a single residence outside. Both homes feature 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and 2 living spaces each. There was a challenge getting enough light into the southern residence. The architect solved this by designing a circular staircase with large skylight above creating a lightwell in the middle of the home. It became a striking design feature that not only brings light in during the day, but also allows a generous view of the stars and the night sky.
