2 Houses in Glendowie

 

DLM were invited to design two houses for a subdivision in Glendowie. The brief was to provide two, four bedroom family homes that took advantage of the position and views, but ensure privacy for both.

 

The site was challenging with a council drain bisecting it, an open watercourse, various protected trees and unfriendly ground conditions.  The buildings were designed to integrate into the site by taking advantage of the site condition. The existing watercourse was revegetated to enhance the lower level outlook, with the upper level living space taking advantage of the sea views.

 

Whilst similar in style each house has its own character. This has been achieved through the use of different materials for key features and selective use of subtle colour changes.
