Maldon Way - Mount Pleasant
LOCATION: Mount Pleasant, Perth, Western Australia
PROJECT TYPE/SERVICES: Residential
FLOOR AREA: 300 square metres (Gross Floor Area)
Mike Edwards Architecture were initially commissioned to provide design guidance on how best to subdivide this 862 sqm lot. The sloping corner lot incorporates an existing red brick bungalow, tall eucalyptus trees and sweeping views over Blue Gum Lake to the south. The slope of the land, existing trees, sewer location, crossover location, street access, northern exposure, lot size , minimising retaining and overshadowing were all factors considered in the recommendations.
A number of different concept designs were explored and tested before the client settled on a compact open plan three level proposal with undercroft garage and utility spaces which maximises views and incorporates generous indoor/outdoor living areas.
