Design of the Month

Studio 104

This month we’ve chosen Studio 104 because it is warm and compact; perfect for those who are after something small & low-maintenance or, for those of you who are wanting to downsize. 

The kitchen is open plan, with a large island in the centre for preparing and serving food & drinks from. The dining and living area is also part of the same space, making communal living a breeze.

The main living space is flanked by bedrooms. The large master suite is at one end complete with a double wardrobe and ensuite. At the other end are another two bedrooms and a bathroom/laundry.

Heron 103

Heron 103 is an awesome two bedroom design that packs a punch. The focus in this design is living, the whole house is dedicated to it.

An atrium in the centre of the house provides a nice entry point for visitors and is also space for storage to be tucked away in the cupboards. The atrium is flanked by two wings which create a nice symmetry.

The master bedroom is large and equipped with an ensuite. The guest area or second bedroom is small and could double as an office or hobbies room.

Both the master bedroom and the lounge can open out to their own patios, allowing for easy outdoor living.

Panorama 112

Panorama 112 is a small two-three bedroom home perfect for those wanting a modern, low maintenance home. With two double bedrooms and a third single bedroom, which could be used as a study, this design can work for many people.

Kitchen, dining and lounge are all situated in one room which is basked in light due to the many windows in the space. The lounge opens up to a large covered patio, extending the living space from inside to out.

A lot of great features are attached to this design which uses space smartly. A laundry area tucks away neatly off to the side of the kitchen. Beside that is a recessed space for a fire, which would do an extremely efficient job of heating the kitchen, dining and living space during the winter. Two bathrooms, including one ensuite, make this house very functional, especially if guests are staying.

Espresso 214

With ample space for family living and entertaining, you can be sure everyone in the house will have their own space to wind down and relax.

Two living areas give you options for entertaining. Use the two spaces as open plan or shut off one room from the other. The kitchen is spacious and open with a large scullery that can be used as a pantry, or to hide away clutter.

The bedrooms are separated by the living area; giving those in the master bedroom space from guests or children in the remaining bedrooms and vice versa. 

This design also accommodates the space needed for a fireplace, so that you can stay toasty and warm during the cold winter months.

Pukeko 185.2

Pukeko 185.2 is an awesome option for people wanting comfort and practicality in a home.

Four comfortably sized bedrooms offer plenty of space for a growing family or visiting guests. 

There is plenty of storage throughout the house with multiple hallway cupboards plus in-built wardrobes in all of the bedrooms. A spacious scullery off the side of the kitchen makes room for kitchen appliances and food prep.

There are multiple access points to the outdoor living area. Kitchen windows open up to the patio with a plinth on the outside window, perfect for serving food and drinks from to family and guests in the entertaining area.

Heron 238

Heron 238 is a stylish and modern design. A great option for a family not wanting to skimp on their entertaining area.

Plenty of large windows offer this house light and sun filled indoor spaces. What’s more, the layout is designed to have all living on one side, grabbing the all-day sun, with bedrooms and bathrooms down the opposite side.

Entertaining is made easy from the spacious open-plan kitchen with large scullery off the side. The kitchen is the heart of the home in this design, acting as a bridge between living and bedrooms. 

Living extends from indoors to out, with two separate patios that jut out from the living area. This makes it easy for you to soak up the sun and enjoy the fresh air.

Pacific 202

Pacific 202 is a great choice for people wanting a great flow throughout their living area.

Family, dining and kitchen areas are open plan, and two large doors open up the formal lounge to connect all the spaces. There is also plenty of space for family with four bedrooms, or three bedrooms and an office, each with built-in storage, the master with a walk-in wardrobe.

Pacific 202 allows for plenty of storage. Several cupboards are located throughout the house, and a separate laundry and walk-in pantry in the kitchen help to keep household clutter out of sight. This plan also features a covered patio to provide protection from that hot summer sun.
