This is one of our favorite houses. It embraces our ideals of building small and efficient. It is also one of our earlier prototype projects to test out ideas on future proofing. It was originally a compact two and a half story, 1625 sqft intermediate link house, which we souped-up to 4 stories (half basement and master bedroom attic) with an internal green wall courtyard. It now has an approx 2400 sqft final built up. When we started, the clients; a young couple with their first child on the way, had a very tight budget (as always!). This was their first landed property (they were then staying in an apartment) and it was going to be “the” house; their (hopefully!) final home, where they will settle down properly and raise a family. In order to build the house within budget, the footprint had to be kept small. We are a very big proponent of efficient design and we believe we can fit in all the client's needs, without having to extend the house too much.
