sawtell architect builder green coffs harbour modern

 

This project transformed an old brick-veneer building on one of Sawtell’s best sites into a modern, comfortable home with a very low eco-footprint.

 

 This Sawtell based project is modern with a low eco-footprint. Designed by Reiner Schimminger a Coffs Harbour based Builder & Architect.

 

Unassuming from the street, this home also had great privacy from the surrounding homes.

 

 

 

From the moment you enter, the house opens up to wonderful views to the ocean and the hills on the far horizon.  Bespoken interiors throughout with a focus on sustainable and healthy materials.  Included was an efficient layout which was tailored to the owner’s specific needs as well as excellent thermal comfort all year round.

Building second dwellings in NSW is something that is not only allowed but encouraged, to address the shortage of small housing types.

 

 

 

We used to – and still do – call this housing type a Granny Flat, and they range from handy man converted garages, to kit homes, to bespoke little gems of architecture.

 

 

 

This one falls into the last category, a little gem.

 

A 1960’s retro style interior, with a marvellous window seat as the ‘Piece de resistance’, that tempts you to sit there all afternoon, gazing at the garden and the forest beyond.

 

 

 

It was important for the building to maintain the view for the public, from the street to the forest and horizon. To allow this, a flat roof as extensive green roof was the solution.

 

 

 

The granny flat had to blend in with the existing house, which determined the choice of external materials and colours.

 

 

 

The building provides easy level access and a high degree of comfort for elderly people or people with restricted mobility. It follows the Livable Housing Design Guidelines and achieves a ‘gold’ standard. It provides good adaptability, so that simple modifications can cater for specific needs of a future tenant.

 

 

 

The granny flat is fully self-contained with kitchen, bathroom and a laundry facility to provide maximum independence for an elderly person or any future tenant.
