18 Jul New Home Design, Building, Renovations And Additions – Dover Heights, Eastern Suburbs, Sydney
Why People Move to Dover Heights in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs.
Dover Heights, in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney, is a prestigious suburb which has been going through gentrification transformation for many years. Many properties have spectacular views to the harbour, city and open sea which impacts positively on the capital values of these properties. The remaining properties benefit from large blocks of land, wide and quiet streets, easy access to the harbour and cliff walks nearby as well as many shopping precincts, schools and public transport close by. The perfect family suburb!
Domus Homes Completed a Spectacular Luxury, Modern, New Home, Custom Design and Renovation Building Project in Dover Heights.
Domus Homes has the benefit of decades of experience in new home building, custom design, interior design, renovations and additions. Using its extensive experience and knowledge, Domus Homes designed a stunning, major new home building renovation for its clients in Dover Heights. The site being located on a gateway position with major harbour views and neighbours only on one side, enabled Domus Homes to create an unusually large inside outside terrace which maximises views and privacy simultaneously. This feature added much needed additional living area to the house on what was a relatively small site.
A flat roof structure and side setbacks were incorporated into the design to accommodate view sharing with the neighbours behind and to create interest on the facades of the building. Multiple bifold louvres were installed on the expansive terraces to provide additional external spaces which could act as summer or winter loggias, whilst still providing shelter from extreme weather and privacy if required whilst still being able to enjoy the views. On still days, these areas could be opened up completely to maximise appreciation of the magnificent harbour views, sunlight and cross flow ventilation.
The Clients’ Brief.
The clients required a master suite with study on the top floor, main entertainment, kitchen and childrens’ bedrooms on the mid level and rumpus, bathroom, garage and pool on the lower level. Private landscape areas were required to provide multiple retreat spaces.
Domus Homes’ interior designer was used to coordinate the colour schemes and materials for the interiors and exteriors of the house. What results is a tasteful selection of colours and materials based on the client’s tastes. Special features include a large skylight over the entry area, large bifold doors to the main bedroom and living areas and a large glass covered loggia inside/outside area to the south and west of the living area making the house light and open to the outside.
Ecological design elements.
Domus Homes designed a full brick and concrete house to deal with the extreme weather elements on this exposed site. Because Dover Heights is exposed to strong winds, driving rain and intensive western sunsets, careful consideration has to be considered in the design and delivery of houses in this area. Cross ventilation, shade and adequate insulation must be considered in the design of houses in Dover Heights. Under floor heating was provided under the tiled floors in the lower and mid level living areas. Domus Homes created a home where air conditioning although installed, has not been used.
