Contemporary 2-Story Dream Home

Résumé du concours

I am seeking an architect to provide the following:
- CAD based floor plans for a modern contemporary two storey home,
- A scaled site plan of the new home based on the site surveyor plans provided including all site levels (R.L'S)
- A minimum of two real life 3d rendered colour visualisations of the new homes front façade, side and rear view.
- Side elevation with heights detailed.

Project Background ...I’m envisioning a contemporary, two-story home that balances both practical needs and architectural ambition. With a plan for 4 bedrooms, this home should cater for a modern aesthetic of contemporary design. Here’s what I’m looking for:

- **Design Objectives:**
- A contemporary two-story house plan with a focus on open, fluid living spaces.
- 4 bedrooms, incorporating flexible spaces that can evolve with family needs, one bedroom can be bedroom and also a optional study.
- A design that maximizes natural light and blends indoor and outdoor living.

- **Key Features:**
- Modern kitchen that opens to dining and living areas, ideal for entertainment.
- Smart storage solutions throughout to maintain clean lines and reduce clutter.
- 4 bedrooms in total. Master bedroom prefered downstairs street facing (eastern side)
- A second living room upstairs facing the front (eastern end) this will have room for a second small kitchen against the wall, also a study room facing the eastern side on the first floor (second storey).
- A swimming pool in the back yard to be designed to be a lap pool that is no more than 7 metres in length and 3.5 metres in width. Double external garage in rear yard.
- Bedroom sizes minimum 3 x 3 metres.
– House not to extend more than 15 metres in length, the western side boundary line is not allowed to go beyond 900mm.
- Roofed alfresco on ground floor that flows from the living rooms
- Modern design with low line roof pitch
Allow 3 metre driveway access for cars to drive through and accommodate a small secondary dwelling in the future, Leave garage seperate in rear yard or do a basement undergrounnd from street.
If basement option is provided then flatter roof will be essential as height restrictions to roof line (top of ridge) is 9 metres in height.
I want to maintain the side access to at least 3 metres so I can accommodate for a secondary dwelling onto the rear yard in the future.
- Downstairs bedroom with walk in robe and also a possibly a separate ensuite or one shared close with the ground floor area. This is to include a walk in shower
- Laundry on ground floor. Walk in pantry from kitchen. Kitchen to be located facing the rear yard and open living to the back pergola area.
- Modern architectural home design with floor to ceiling glass to front façade (east side)
- Cantilever balcony on first floor that extends out 2 metres of front building line and also has another1 metre that is above the ground level the home.

Other design elements to consider:
I am also open to the idea of having a basement car park to free up space in the rear yard, however, the basement should not to be too deep from the existing natural ground level as there are 9 metre height restrictions from local authorities, The height of the basement to be 2.4metres floor to ceiling.
Note, the front balcony or front building line has to commence where the past western neighbour’s balcony line commences and eastern neighbours building line commences, ie average of both.
The side yard on the western side boundary has to be 900mm from the boundary line on the surveyors report.

I have attatched some elements of design facades i like to go in this general theme- some are one storey however i like these type of roof lines, please be creative and design your own design as i have an open mind, just expressing a style that i like.

Note: north is where the arrow is pointed on the surveyor plan!

Winner can possibly get contract to go on to design full home architectural plans
Thanks, Best Wishes

      I will also try to explain it here, so for the elevation, ground floor is considered 0.00, the street level, is -0.75 from 0.00 (ground floor), the basement is -2.75 from 0.00, level 2 story is + 3.05 from 0.00. The top of roof is + 7.80 from 0.00. Hope this explains. Thank you.

      Hi, yes contest is still valid Marcos. The measurement between the font line and future construction is the two things, the balcony on the first floor can start at 5.5 metres from the font line. The lower floor must start at at least 6 metres fron the front line. Hope this makes sense

      what do you refer to by terrace, when i say cantilever balcony i just mean an entertainment area on the first floor outside where i can go out and enjoy the view. A cantilever allows me to go more forward for council requirements i am allowed to extend to 5.5metres from the front boundary line. It doesnt have to cantilever much

    Qestion: i dont understand this part: "Cantilever balcony on first floor that extends out 2 metres of front building line and also has another1 metre that is above the ground level the home." to be more specific i don't understand where the front line of building is according to you, is it the front facade that faces the road? should i put the balcony there?

      • il y a 1 mois

      yes the front building line is the front facade that faces the road. Also i want a cantilevered balcony facing the front, would prefer some roof protection for shade and raid. Doesnt have to be roofed the entire terrace/balcony

      I putted the basement on the right side because the entrance needs to be on the left side since you would like the master bedroom to face south East, also the basement area is under all the house area, and for its aeration and natural light there isn’t problem since not all the basement front facade is under ground, we can add some high windows to basement

      • il y a 1 mois

      Hi, would prefer it external in rear yard after pool or basement as site is narrow. The basement depth can go level with street and house won't become to high.

      • il y a 1 mois

    • il y a 1 mois

    also in second option as illustrated in my submission #37 i have left the entrance of 3m to rear backyard on eastern side, should i keep basement or remove it?

    • il y a 1 mois
  • NemerMoncefAmine
    NemerMoncefAmine
    • il y a 1 mois

    well the depth of basement can be either the same level as the street, and then we can access the ground level of house by going up some stairs, or i could put the parking basement down by 1m from street level, and we can access the house ground LVL by going up only 0.6m, i have added a submission to explain the second option

    check #31 , from street level to northern level it is 3.5m (one story level), should i design the house basement parking floor on street level? it would look more esthetic, only if i made the site correctly

      I'm not sure if I should put garage at rear or basement, i have been unsure for a while. What would the depth of basement be, depth of street level?

      • il y a 2 mois

      I'm not sure where these 2 points start from, there is slope more from the street to the 7 metre point inside the boundary, other then this there is very small slope.

      The surveying plan shows the house and garage on the lot that are currently on the land. I am considering to knock down this home and build new. The site levels on surveying plan are true and not indicative. I wish to put garage in rear yard or have a semi underground car park/basement.
