Gardner Construction

Light Filled Contemporary Family Home,
Sutherland Shire

This house did not have a sense of connection and the floorplan was disjointed and not family friendly. Rooms were closed off, separated and did not allow light and flow into the spaces.

They wanted their home to feel connected and open. Open plan living is one of the biggest changes in contemporary home building design. Our aim was that the kitchen was open to living areas and become connected to the backyard. The ceilings were low, so we started with implementing 2 large skylight wells consisting of 4 sky lights in each, to create volted ceilings and an element of height. We flipped the kitchen, living and dining area to the opposite end of the house to maximise space and allow the clients an open plan layout that now connects to the backyard.

Our design team did all the interior selections design and drafting finishing off the house to perfection within the client’s budget.
