    Hello there, I presume from the currency that the location is Australia, i.e. southern hemisphere. So you need to get your natural light primarily from the northern side? Also, triple glazing ? would you not prefer to stick with double glazing and invest the savings in energy efficient appliances and devices ?

      Hi. Yes. double glazing would most likely be sufficient. I agree. Thanks! Yes, most of the light comes from the north.

    Hi everyone, I have changed the brief to relax the 'autocad' requirement as I understand it is/was a lot more effort than I thought orginally. Please submit just a quick 'rough sketch' style design that meets the general requirements and is in keeping with the 'houzz' items that we like.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone. Clearly I have under estimated the effort involved. I also see now that a contest is probably not the right approach for this type of work. As such I have created the following project: https://www.freelancer.com/projects/threed-modelling-AutoCAD/Provide-possible-duplex-designs.html
