This house was designed for clients that wanted to subdivide the property, build one house for themselves to live in (unit 1), on the front of the site. And build another house to sell for the rear site (unit 2).
The rear half of this site had a number on unique challenges. It was tapering dramatically to the rear of the site (rear of site is only 12.5m wide), aswell as a dramatic crossfall of approx 3m. On top of that there is a public sewerline that runs diagonally through the rear half of the site. This is why the ground floor plan looks rather odd, in order to get the appropriate clearances to the pipe.
Never the less an appropriate design was generated taking all of these factors of difficulty into consideration, whilst retaining the sites view potential and essential good northern orientation.
