Design a modern bungalow, with three upper floor dormered bedrooms having night views to the sky, and daytime views to the landscape. The living/dining room is to open out onto an outdoor room with a fireplace. Rain water is to be collected in vertical retention tanks for a gravity feed grey water supply for landscaping and interior use.
When a specific style of home is asked for, and its traditional framework is altered for more modern inclusions of forms and functions, interesting opportunities present themselves to be thought through.
The upper bedrooms are designed with green house extensions as roof dormers to allow for night and day, sky and landscape views. A large outdoor terrace with a roof and skylight structure, installed with radiant ceiling heaters, provides year around comfort for this outdoor area with a fireplace.
