Home Concept Design

Contest Brief

Hi
We are looking for concept designs to change our existing house
• Current layout as per floorplan attached
• Site photos provided
• Slope of the property:
o N to S - 2.5m drop
• House aspect is South East.
• Prevailing wind in the summer is NE and great to cool down the house (Wind strength moderate 10 – 15knots)
• Prevailing wind in the winter is S and SW and comes in over the ocean. Strong winds – up to 45knots. Cold winds. - PLEASE KEEP THIS IN MIND FOR THE POSITION OF THE ENTRANCE
• Planning to gut existing house as part of renovation. Keep the existing shell (outer walls) and renovate and extend the house to include the following: (YOU CAN INCREASE THE SIZE OF THE DESIGN BY EXTENDING TO THE BACK)
o 5 bedrooms
o 3-4 bathrooms
o 1 Study
o 1 TV/Games Room
o Kitchen
o Dining Area
o Fireplaces
o 3 Garages
o 1 x store room
o 1 x playroom
o 1x laundry

• Requirements
o OPTIMISE THE VIEWS
o Optimise use of natural light

Big tree in the back of the property will be removed
Extensions need to be to the back of the existing place as there are houses on both sides.
Dimensions of property - 36.5m x 15m
Existing house is facing SE.
We will probably clear most of the existing interior walls and just use the shell of the house and extend from there.
Don't worry too much about what is currently in the house.
I think we would keep the existing shell and remove all inside.
You can close alfresco space.
Total area to use can be up to 80% of property size -
We are budgeting to spend $700 000 on the project -
For now we are looking primarily for conceptual designs

• Deliverables
o 3D Rendered design (all views)
o 2D Floor plans

    Hi, Thank you. Is it ok if I just send the floor plans and elevations first before I begin doing the 3D. I just like to have your comment before doing the Exterior and Interior Renderings.

      Increased to AUD $600. Few questions from other participants - Tree will be cleared. / Extensions need to be to the back of the existing place as there are houses on both sides. Dimensions of property - 36.5m x 15m - Existing house is facing SE. We will probably clear most of the existing interior walls and just use the shell of the house and extend from there. Please let me know if any other questions. Don't worry too much about what is currently in the house. I am open to your ideas regarding bedrooms / master or double. I think we would keep the existing shell and remove all inside. You can close alfresco space. Total area to use can be up to 80% of property size - We are budgeting to spend $700 000 on the project - For now we are looking primarily for conceptual designs
