The material palette of these narrow house plans incorporate Corten steel, locally sourced Australian hardwood internal timber flooring and ‘Monument’ paint finish Scyon Axon cladding.

The concept of these narrow house plans place significant importance on sustainability and energy-efficiency design principles. The well considered narrow house plans cleverly achieves passive solar design principles when correctly sited, allowing the open plan living spaces to capture the winter heat gain, when the sun is at lower azimuth, and eliminates the worst of the summer heat gain. The narrow house plans also feature highlight windows to maximise natural light through the daylight hours and vent stale hot air via ‘stack effect’ ventilation.

The narrow house plans colour palette also includes clear anodised window frames and Artedomus tiles throughout, while the wall cladding material finishes for these narrow house plans, combine horizontally formatted Corten steel with a single lock standing seam, which is juxtaposed against the vertically grooved Scyon Axon cladding for this green building’s higher BAL rating.

“We commissioned Threadgold Architecture for the refurbishment of our house in Dalkeith for both design and contract administration services. We were delighted with the design which Stuart tendered to a select group of local builders. We were also grateful for Stuart’s contractual understanding and attention to detail which kept the builder focussed on the desired outcomes throughout the building process. We are very happy with the renovations and the enjoyment we now get from our transformed living areas.”
