  • 188 sqm ground floor
  • 32 sqm alfresco and terrace
  • 3 bedrooms
  • 2.5 bathrooms

This architect designed simple house design, results in an efficiently planned and passive designed three bedroom residence with 188 sqm open plan living space and 32 sqm  of sun drenched exterior living area. The simple house design ensures a thermally efficient passive design. The well considered planning and space relationships create a simple house design that can utilise slab on ground construction or the cost effective patented prefab footing system. The generous open plan living areas of the simple house design are separated by generous sized 2400mm high clear anodised end-sliding doors from the outdoor northern alfresco. The simple house design strategically locates the living space to the northern aspect which is integral to performance as an energy efficient passive design. The simple house design has northern living space that connects and spills out onto the alfresco to encourage indoor-outdoor living embraced in the Australian lifestyle.

The simple house design and passive design are achieved on a small budget by incorporating a patented prefab footing system, solar hot water and wood fuel firebox for wood fuel boosting. Visitors to the passive house are greeted with a large 2400mm high double glazed timber pivot door and are only then ushered into the passive house’s open plan living areas. The architect designed kitchen incorporates the latest porcelain panel selections with a 1200mm wide kitchen island bench that maximises interface between the kitchen hub and adjacent living area. The simple house design features kitchen perimeter benchtops in the passive house also boasting the latest porcelain panel selections, coloured back glass and Blum Adventos lift overhead cupboards cantilevered above the benchtop height slot window.

“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.”

“I was very impressed with the ideas that Stuart incorporated into the design for our family home in Perth.   Stuart designed a free-flowing open plan living space that perfectly suits our family of four. Stuart listened to our ideas and delivered the brief within the budget constraints.  My wife and I would be happy to recommend Threadgold Architecture as a business that still promotes the old values of honesty and integrity.”
