As well as the desire to create a wonderful place to live in the Hills suburb of Carmel on a multi-acre site, the owners also needed to run separate businesses from their new home. With an outlook to the south, and a need to allow warm northern winter sun into the generous office which is incorporated within this amazing building, highlight roof lights allow this to happen.
The property is quite isolated, is off scheme water /sewerage, and systems for these services were included within the design from the outset.
In addition to the owners’ private and office accommodation, a guest wing with two bedrooms with separate facilities is connected to the main house through the ‘Outdoor Room’, for safe and all-weather connection, whilst providing privacy for both ends of the house. This allow the owners’ children and grandchildren to visit on school holidays etc whilst allowing for privacy and a degree of separation for longer stays or guests.
