16 Aug DA ACHIEVED FOR CUSTOM DESIGNED MODERN FEDERATION HOUSE AND POOL BUILDING IN KILLARA, LOWER NORTH SHORE BY DOMUS HOMES.
Location – Killara.
Killara is a prestigious, leafy, wide road, lower north shore suburb with magnificent homes and gardens in the Ku Ring Gai Council area. Killara is surrounded by other established suburbs such as Pymble, Lindfield, Gordon, Turramurra, St Ives and North Ryde and is close to Roseville, Lane Cove, Riverview and Chatswood.
Design Style – Modern Federation.
Domus Homes achieved Development Approval for a magnificent modern federation house and pool building in Killara. Although the house is contemporary in style, it borrows from traditional Federation elements, which makes the house typically Australian. These Federation elements are a pitched roof, large overhanging rooves over large outdoor terraces, brick piers and posts supporting the roof overhangs, wide eaves throughout, dutch gables, roof covered balconies and fireplaces in the living areas.
This large family home comprises three bedrooms and two bathrooms, a master bedroom with en suite and walk in robe with a common area completing the first floor level. The ground floor level comprises a large kitchen, breakfast, living and dining room all extending out to large covered terraces for an inside/outside lifestyle. A library/study, formal living room, laundry, guest bathroom, guest bedroom and double garage are also included. A large infinity edged pool extending from the informal area has also been designed.
The house orientation and land slope created a challenge for Domus Homes because the bushland views are to the south, but houses need to be orientated northwards for the best sunlight capture. The house had to be located at the highest point of the land to the north of the site because of stormwater and sewer line issues. The solution was to maximise east, north and west windows and doors so that warm sunlight could penetrate the house in winter as well as extensive use of large skylights. In summer these openings would be shaded by the roof overhangs or adjustable blinds to maintain a cool house. Cross flow ventilation in all directions was designed to cool the house in summer. North facing windows and doors were maximised to allow sunlight infiltration into the living areas and bedrooms all year round. Hydronic underfloor heating and two fireplaces would ensure economical heating of this grand house.
