Contest Brief

I have a two bedroom single front terrace in Melbourne. I am looking for some design ideas to extend out the back and build a second storey. I want somebody to put together floor plans including dimensions. The winning design will also win the right to further work on 3d rendering, and more detailed plans.

Filename19 - renovations next door (116) and current floor plan (114)
1935 - Shows rear of buildings from Arnold St
1938 - shows rear of buildings from other side
1936 - shows front of buildings

Some important considerations are:
- the front facade can not be altered as it is heritage listed
- light well/side passage on bottom story is only light source for much of the house
- able to build up only after the front chimneys (which are situated in between bedroom 1 and 2 currently)
- can build to the boundaries of the block on the side but will need to consider light
- can only extend out the back 2.5 metres

Customer wants:
- expand property from 2 bedroom to preferably 4 bedroom or at least 3 bedroom and a small study
- create a second storey
- expand living space
- open and plenty of natural light
- consider dropping the ceiling height so that the 2nd storey is not so high (not essential but may reduce some costs)
- turn light well into a practical and featured space

Further wants include:
- refresh the front rooms
- spacious kitchen
- practical laundry space
- indoor/outdoor living
- looking for a lot of wow factor and a maximisation of the small block

Potential ideas:
- happy to send through a number of design ideas/other potential floor plans but really looking to you for some creative ideas
- if we are happy with the floor plans will also look for help with design
- some recent developments in the area are [login to view URL] and [login to view URL] these have aspects that we like but lack some of the wow factor we are after

    Michel, please could you tell us what is the background length of the existing house? I think some proposals have increased the possible back length.

      Hi RCDA, the images are to scale so just use the dimensions provided on the house next door. Many thanks,

      Hello. Is there the possibility to build something in the back of the plot, as it has done your next door neighbour ?. He has the studio and laundry in a separate building in the back.

      Hi Ivanmfernandez. Yes it is possible. But remember two things. There needs to be rear access at the back of the property. And I think council regulations say you cannot build on more than 80% of the property
