Campbell dual occupancy

Set on a leafy bush block backing onto a nature park in Campbell, this new house is a downsized gem that sits behind the owner's original home.

Pared back simplicity

Our highly engaged client – one of the participants in our very first community workshops on how to build an affordable, energy efficient house – was familiar with the idea of exploring ‘what is a home’ and keen to create a high degree of comfort from pared back essentials to simplify life in retirement.

Sited on a previously under-used section of garden at the rear of the block, the house is positioned for optimal northern orientation and to provide a sense of privacy from the main home.

The generous living room with study faces north and overlooks the garden; double glazed windows are positioned to capture winter sun and frame bushland views; and the two bedroom / two bathroom floor plan easily accommodates regular visitors from interstate.
