Lakeside & Reverse Living

On this occasion, our client came to us with an objective in mind. She had an excellent block situated opposite Jackadder Lake in Woodlands. Not only did she want us to capture those views, but she also wanted the living areas to be accommodated upstairs as well.

Having established that she also entertains quite frequently, we set about designing a home that would satisfy all these needs. We provided a large living and kitchen area that captured all the views from every angle while incorporating a huge seamless balcony off the living area ideal for entertaining.

On top of this, we created a second living area downstairs which opens onto a north facing alfresco, perfect for those still winter days.

Capturing Views

We always endeavour to capture views if possible, and in this case, we designed and allowed for a full glass window to optimise the verdant views across to the park and lake beyond.

Coming along nicely with its final render our Lakeside delight is really starting to look the part. We only started on this home 6 months ago and all of the internal rendering has been completed and our trades are now finishing off the remaining areas.

Natural Light

Let’s face it, we spend more and more time in the kitchen these days, whether it be due to the resurgence in cooking shows, or the trend in healthier eating or gourmet style preparation of food, so we all have a common requirement for as much natural light as possible.

You will note that with this kitchen design we allowed for a bench height window to let in as much light as possible, with the added advantage of gaining glimpses of the outside world since this is a two storey structure. In the case of a single storey home, we would have allowed for a verdant garden or water feature immediately to be situated directly outside the window to make for a most pleasant environment. At night time, clever use of outdoor lighting could really highlight this feature.

City Beach Home – Well Under Way

Render is being applied to this classic City Beach Home. We particularly enjoyed designing this home, being elevated and having rear ocean views to Rottnest we captured that outlook by opening up the rear of the home with large full height windows and concertina doors flowing onto a spacious entertaining area and soon to be, sparkling pool.


Double Storey Homes – The Best of Both Worlds

Nothing says luxury like an elegant, architecturally designed, two storey home which incorporates intelligent design, smart technology, ingenious use of space and sensational street appeal.

In real estate there are three important words and they’re all location!


GST Implications

Bearing in mind that there is a possibility of the GST being raised by 5% if implemented in full without offsets, this could add $30,000 to the cost of our average home currently worth $600,000! This is definitely worth thinking about and maybe it’s time for action.

STAIRS – Shapes and Sizes

Stairs, apart from a practical application, can be the catalyst for creating the mood of the home.

Some clients require a Grand Entrance with a more formal open Lobby and sweeping stairs up to the upper floor. Others prefer stairs tucked away in the middle of the home which offers more privacy and does not require having to walk through formal areas to access upstairs bedrooms and living from the kitchen with that cup of tea.



The Pros and Cons of Pools


A well designed pool can add considerable value to your home, well above the cost of the installation. The advantage of having your home designed from scratch by experts such as Design & Construct Residential is that the pool can be seamlessly integrated alongside the main living areas ensuring an aquatic and relaxing feel to the home.
