New Self Build near Perth

We have designed this house for a client who is using the self-build route to create their own home. The site is in an elevated location on the south side of Perth with great views to the north and to the east.

The house will comprise an open plan ground floor with views towards Perth and the Carse of Gowrie, an upper floor with bedrooms and a basement level with a self-contained “annexe” that is cut in to the steeply sloping site.

Because the house’s principal views are to¬†the east and to the north, we propose a modest amount of apertures to the south so the roof is opened up to allow a large roof light to flood the three levels with natural daylight.

Because the project is self-build, we propose a simple palate of materials and a monolithic shape to reduce the amount of detailing complexities.
