    Plot Design : Building Design & Drafting Services : Darlington Building Extension

    Gooseberry Hill New Extension

    Plot Design | Building Design


    This older home has new owner's and they need this old one to fit their needs. The new design had to work with the existing heritage style street appeal and meld old tacked on extensions with the existing homestead's look and feel. The new design which is hidden at the rear is all contemporary with new raking open plan living areas & outdoor living areas that connect thru to the new pool out the back and the existing courtyard & flame tree. There was a fair bit of shuffling of spaces internally as well to get the old, tacked on & new extension to all work together neatly. In the end it all works & the outcome for the client is a family forever home.

    Plot Design : Building Design & Drafting Services : Boya New Home

    Boya Residence

    Plot Design | Building Design

    This passive solar home is located on a steep sloping bushland site along a creek line. The home was designed to minimise disturbance to site whilst balancing the need to create a private family home with separate studio, that highlights the valley views and rocky creek. Photo from The Agency

    Highgate New Extension & Studio

    Plot Design | Building Design


    This home is located on the iconic Mary St in Highgate, the one with all those beautiful avenue of shady Moreton Bay fig trees on both sides, running between Beaufort St & Hyde Park. Great location but it's a pretty run down cottage in need of a revamp that reflects the value of the property and the needs of a new family. The original cottage will remain, but the old addons will go to make room for a new simple open plan living area & alfresco. A new studio will be added at the back to take overflow visitors & family when needed. The block is very small but there is still outdoor room to move, even with the addition of a pool in the future. Also we improved the street frontage by adding a bullnosed veranda and upgraded fencing.

    Plot Design : Building Design & Drafting Services : Darlington Building Extension

    Stoneville New Residence

    Plot Design | Building Design

    This New Home has been a long time coming, the family have been making do in a comfortable approved Granny Flat, but it's now time to fully realise their dream home. The home is primarily a conventional cavity brick, slab on ground home and has perfect orientation & slope for a Passive Solar home design. The North orientation which luckily faces the views towards the valley, includes lots of glazing, and most of the living & bedroom spaces have access to this vista. The home has a vaulted raking ceiling with open plan living space that extends right out to the connected outdoor living spaces on both sides of the home. This is going to look terrific when finished.

    Plot Design : Darlington Residence

    Darlington Residence

    Plot Design | Building Design

    The site was a beautiful sloping hills site with views towards the city. The family had clear ideas of the elements & components they wanted but needed help in reconciling all their ideas & including this within their home. The home is very modern & laid out in a modular fashion using raw finished materials.

    Josh Byrne & Associates | Drafting and Sustainability Consultant

    In Aaron's work as a draftsman and sustainability consultant for JBA, he was involved in the early stages of the building design process, through to detailed documentation of the landscaping award winning Josh's House project. This project includes two homes that are thermally comfortable year round, without the need for air conditioning or additional heating. They generate more electricity than they use, and will harvest and recycle water. In addition to private garden areas, a common productive garden supplies both houses with fresh food.

    Guildford 2 Storey Extension

    PLot Design | Building Design

    This modern 2 storey extension in Guildford, Western Australia, is located on a prominent street and has undisturbed views to the Swan Valley floodplain. The brief was for an affordable, contemporary extension, that incorporates passive solar design principles, and took advantage of the views. It is a real breakaway from the dated existing brick & tile residence and offers a new open living area and a spacious master bedroom suite with private views.

    Plot Design : Glen Forrest Cottage Extension

    Glen Forrest Cottage Extension

    Plot Design | Building Design

    This old cottage had been renovated so many times that it was starting to lose it’s charm and was certainly falling into disrepair. The new owner already has a beautiful home but was looking to downsize. The plan is to strip off all the old adhoc extensions and keep the original cottage walls, then bring a refreshed clean layout to the home whilst still trying to highlight the cottages original charms.

    Plot Design : Building Design & Drafting Services : Gidgegannup Building Extension

    Gidgegannup Extension

    Plot Design | Building Design

    The existing home was getting small, so we designed a new North facing passive solar extension with extended main living areas, office, observation deck, atrium and a new master bedroom suite.

    South Fremantle Studio / Granny Flat

    Plot Design | Building Design

    Having worked with this client before we were familiar with the site and engaged to design a new studio that could also be used as an ancillary accommodation or granny flat. After resolving an initial concept at ground level we revised the design, raising the studio above the ground to shield the client's backyard from overlooking by a new development to the South. This revised layout provided a better outcome with North facing windows overlooking the backyard, a private courtyard and a shaded undercroft with bike store below.

    Plot Design : Building Design & Drafting Services : Darlington Building Extension

    Darlington 2 Storey Extension

    Plot Design | Building Design

    These clients have a beautiful property and old home hidden far back from the street amongst the trees but with sweeping view to the West and the city. The brief was for a modern extension that reflects the same form and lines as the existing Californian Bungalow home. The new extension updates a 1970's double storey extension that didn't quite fit with the original style. Whilst still in the concept design phase the new double storey extension has adapted to take on board the clients design style and now has a more monumental feel with clear views towards the garden and city. Shading options to protect the home from the western sun are still being adapted but through sun shading analysis and the use of soft landscaping deciduous vines we can shade the building until 3pm which means we have an hour before the sun drops behind the tree lines and disappears into the sunset.

    Edgefield Projects - 2 Storey Residence - Plot Design

    2 Storey Residence

    We assisted Edgefield Projects by providing detailed documentation on this custom two storey home design in Mandurah.

    Plot Design : Darlington Extension

    Darlington Extension

    Plot Design | Building Design

    The existing home had a good quality main residence with an old attached cottage to the side that needed refreshing. The old cottage will be removed in this design & a new modern extension with clean lines will be constructed in it's place. The new arrangement includes space for 3 new bedrooms, music / study and new bathroom. The owners wanted a change from the old fibro and metal roof construction used on the main residence so the new extension is modern and with more refined detailing.

    Helena Valley Extension

    Plot Design | Building Design

    This alteration & extension to an existing brick & tile home in Helena Valley added an extra storey for an adults retreat with West facing deck, and extended the  living / entertaining areas, including a full featured kitchen. The existing spaces where slightly remodeled to improve circulation and accommodate a growing family.

    Plot Design : Parkerville Residence

    Parkerville Residence

    Plot Design | Building Design

    This is a very nice home on a larger site in Parkerville with a nice open living area with raking ceilings. It includes a large theatre, feature fireplace & a large balcony facing the views to the South.

    Plot Design : Jane Brook Residence

    Jane Brook Residence

    Plot Design | Building Design

    This home is big and fancier then some of the other homes we have worked on in the past. The owner had already done some homework and knew they wanted a French Provincial style & feel to the home and had also arranged a very simple but workable floor plan. Working with the client we further resolved the design and did full detailed documentation for construction.

    Plot Design : Scribe Design : Drafting Services : Residential and Grouped Housing

    Residential and Grouped Housing

    As a member of the Scribe team, Aaron worked on a range of residential and grouped housing projects in the North West. His roles included detailed documentation and building design input.

    Plot Design : Helena Valley Residence & Ancillary Accommodation

    Helena Valley Residence & Ancillary Accommodation

    Plot Design | Building Design

    This project included a new residence and a 2 bed self contained ancillary accommodation. Universal access considerations where a very important outcome, to increase functionality and overall ease of access within the home. The self container unit is designed to be private & address the street, (location on image is not accurate) and would host extended family and provide flexibility in the future.

     

    Plot Design : Building Design & Drafting Services : Darlington Building Renovation

    Darlington Renovation

    Plot Design | Building Design and Project Management

    This well located elevated family home in Darlington had exceptional views of the city but was ageing and falling into disrepair. The home was renovated on a tight budget that went beyond just replacing paint and carpet. The work focused on highlighting it's features and recreating the home with a modern feel. 

    Plot Design : Dandaragan Extension

    Dandaragan Extension

    Plot Design | Building Design

    Located in the rural community of Dandaragan North of Perth on a large farm property. This young family wanted a bit more space to grow as they have their first baby on the way. The new extension includes a new master bedroom suite, study & ensuite. Each of these spaces are designed to take advantage of the private view over the farm. A small sheltered entry with an open deck will connect the new extension to the existing home to the North.  

    Plot Design : Building Design & Drafting Services : Darlington Building Extension

    Kalamunda New Residence

    Plot Design | Building Design

    This home had a lot of constraints. We had an existing home that needs to be converted into an granny flat, a steeply sloping site, a big oak tree that had to stay, setback issues due to it's need to tie in with the existing landscaping and granny flat and of coarse it had to reflect the lifestyle, budget and style of the client. The 3 bed 2 bath home features a central living area and a wing for each the parents and children. Decks face off towards the views and surround the oak tree. The master bedroom suite has also secured views to the oak from the bedroom, private outdoor sitting area and the Ensuite. The home has level areas to the North with a deciduous vine covered pergola that will be a focus for interacting with the garden. This project is still in concept and we hope to work with the clients and builders to further refine the home.

    Plot Design : Building Design & Drafting Services : Chidlow New Home

    Chidlow Residence

    Plot Design | Building Design

    This modest passive solar framed home was designed for a young family at the Somerville Ecovillage in Chidlow. Utilising typical construction methods in conjunction with a feature rammed earth wall internally and high level clerestory windows the home was designed to be light and cosy all year round.

    Plot Design : Building Design & Drafting Services : Darlington Building Extension

    Kalamunda New Residence

    Plot Design | Building Design

    This home has been designed with the future in mind. It is very livability and adaptability for access considered throughout for now and in the future. It is consistent with standard construction practices and has evolved around the clients needs.

    As part of JBA's landscape and sustainability team, Aaron worked to produce a series of  landscape concept drawings including best practice Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) principles. For a range of sites in Caboolture, Queensland for the Moreton Bay Regional Council. 

    Plot Design: Middle Swan Residence

    Middle Swan Residence

    Plot Design | Building Design

    This home is big, and it needs to be it is designed to accommodate a growing family & support grand parents needs into the future. Located close to the Swan River in a rural zoned property in the Swan Valley there was also plenty of room to grow the design as well. The client had already worked unsuccessfully with another architect to achieve the design they wanted. When Plot Design was engaged we reviewed their needs & the work that had been done to date, to see where we could get a better results for the family. Working with the client we finalised a design that suited the family well.

    Plot Design : Building Design & Drafting Services : Darlington Building Extension

    Darlington 2 Storey Extension

    Plot Design | Building Design

    This extension was designed to retain the existing cottage feel and include a more refined rear double storey extension. We did not want the new works to impose on the street elevation of the existing building, by having this as a clear and separate extension it would also minimise the potential issues that can be encountered when dealing with the older building. The new works include a open plan living space & alfresco on the ground floor and a new master bedroom suite upstairs.

    Plot Design : New Cottage Extension

    New Cottage Extension

    Plot Design | Building Design

    The couple who own this cute cottage at the base of the foothills needed a bit more space the existing home is tiny buy today's standards, but they love the look and feel of it. We designed an extension on the South that would retain the existing old world frontage and create a light and bright new extension with new open plan living spaces, new master bedroom and a refreshed suite of wet areas to free up the footprint of the existing building.

    Darlington New Extension

    Plot Design | Building Design

    I have really enjoyed working with the clients on this project. It is a little one and very effective in footprint. The older log cabin extension will be updated and tweaked internally to create more living spaces. The new extension has 2 bedrooms and a kids retreat with laundry and is connected by a breezeway and feature entry. The courtyard created to the rear and between the 2 wings will be shady, private and perfect for creating a nice native garden between them.
