A Room with a View
When designed correctly, sloping blocks of land normally means ‘views and decks’….. fancy your morning coffee overlooking your own private valley…. or perhaps your rugged clifftop coastal vista….or maybe it’s a pleasant outlook over trees and parks. When it comes to designing your new home, designing one that works with the slope will reduce the high levels of excavation and retaining walls required in order for you to maximise those views.
Too often you see homes ‘cut into the block’ which can cause all sorts of problems with drainage, retaining walls and driveways.
Like any project, our Design Team will take the time to study and understand your block of land ….what you can and can’t do with the slope, solar orientation, the views and the prevailing breezes.
It requires experience and skill!
Designing and building homes on sloping blocks requires real skill and attention to detail. With over 25 years experience in designing homes for sloping sites, we understand the careful consideration required pertaining to drainage and soil retention, driveway access, height restrictions, retaining walls, maximising views to name a few. By working with the unique slope of your block and designing a home that works with the slope, you can reduce the need for excavation and retaining walls. Too much excavation can cause additional problems in itself. It can interfere with the drainage of the block, exacerbate erosion, and cause instability.
Whether you have a block that slopes 1 metre or 10 metres, your new home will be passive designed to suit your family's individual lifestyle requirements. We offer a personalised service, which we believe, is second to none. Our ‘one stop shop’ service provides you with teamed skills of Building Designers, Interior Designer and Builders all under the one roof.
