Open plan living and entertaining areas in modern houses can be planned in a mul tude of ways but the configura on that works best on a narrow site is the last one with a long outdoor space and the kitchen, dining and living areas all arranged alongside the outside space which allows many di erent ways of accessing each zone.

Outdoor living spaces next to open plan kitchen, dining and living rooms are becoming a necessity to modern living. They are o en equipped with a second kitchen and alongside a pool. My concept is to incorporate these outdoor living spaces, indoor living spaces and pools into one area that is perfect for entertaining.

Di erent configura ons of the house, garage and outdoor area have various pros and cons. The best configura on has been reached by placing the garage to the south and the living areas and outdoor spaces running north south so that both areas benefit from northern sunlight, direct access to the outdoor area from each zone and good ven la on.

revised subdivision

The site is on the corner of Park Road and Cli on Street in Nedlands. It is within walking distance of the Hampden Rd cafe strip, UWA, King’s Park and the Swan River.

Re sub-dividing the lots into three equal rectangular lots with their primary street being Park Road eliminates the issue of overshadowing and provides each lot with good northern sun access. As the lots are narrow they only allow a building of 2 rooms wide meaning all rooms will have good access to natural light and ven la on. This arrangement also provides be er privacy by reducing overlooking as the courtyards can all be situated to the north. It also allows the two outer lots to have hidden garages o the primary street or for all of the garage to face south so that they don’t waste northern sun.

The graphs show the demographics of the suburb and therefore who the poten al owners are. -The local demographic is older than the Perth average age with the majority in the 35-49 and 70-84 range. -Household income is in the highest bracket of $3,000+ per week due to the high cost of houses in Nedlands. -Almost 60% of the households in Nedlands are families and almost 50% of them are families with children

Medium to large modern houses in Nedlands that are built for a similar demographic and brief. They are all: -3 or 4 bedroom -2 to 4 bathroom -2 car garage -worth $1.6 - $3.7 million

3 x lo-CAL From the demographic study the best market to target are families where the parents are professionals aged 35 to 49 with young or teenage children and younger professional couples aged 26 to 35 with no or young children. People who buy houses in Nedlands have higher than average incomes so therefore would expect a certain level of luxury from a house. House requirements for this market would be: -3 or 4 bedrooms -2 to 4 bathrooms -Separate living areas -Double garage -Outdoor entertaining area

North Eleva on

The houses will all be two storey with the ground floor occupying an open plan living, dining, kitchen and outdoor area with a lap pool and a double garage. On the second floor will be the bedrooms, bathrooms and an addi onal lounge area and balcony. Zero lot lines will be u lised to maximise the use able space as well as garage setbacks of 4.5m rather than 6m.

Overlooking from the second storey of the houses will be minimised through high windows and screening which will also provide privacy and shade from the sun. On the north side overlooking into the adjacent courtyards will have to be considered and on the south side privacy and overlooking from the balconies will have to be considered.

South Eleva on The overshadowing at midday on the winter sols ce is minimal as the shadows are projected onto Park Rd as a result of the new sub-division.
