ancillary dwelling plans
These contemporary ancillary dwelling plans open up to deliver 1206 square feet/112 square meters of indoor-outdoor living space. The open-plan kitchen, dining, living, laundry and bedroom, comprise the 754 square feet/70 square meters of gross floor area, with an additional 452 square feet/42 square meter alfresco. The ancillary dwelling plans provide a terrace sun-drenched external area which is ideally suited for extended family or an artist in residence. The size of the ancillary dwelling plans harmonize with local authority planning schemes that provide planning policy for ancillary dwellings. The raking ceilings of the ancillary dwelling plans conform to passive solar design principles and augment solar heat gain during the cooler winter months when correctly orientated onsite.
The ancillary dwelling plans incorporate sustainability and energy-efficient design principles to maximize passive solar design principles by catching the winter heat gain when the sun is at lower azimuth and storage in the dwelling’s thermal mass. The reinforced concrete slab that operates as the heat sink for release of the radiant heat energy through the cooler evening hours. The fenestration of the residence integrates calculated sun shading to eliminate the worst of the summer heat gain while highlight windows expunge stale hot air using ‘stack effect’ ventilation principles.

“We commissioned Threadgold Architecture for the refurbishment of our house in Dalkeith for both design and contract administration services. We were delighted with the design which Stuart tendered to a select group of local builders. We were also grateful for Stuart’s contractual understanding and attention to detail which kept the builder focussed on the desired outcomes throughout the building process. We are very happy with the renovations and the enjoyment we now get from our transformed living areas.”
“I was very impressed with the ideas that Stuart incorporated into the design for our family home in Perth. Stuart designed a free-flowing open plan living space that perfectly suits our family of four. Stuart listened to our ideas and delivered the brief within the budget constraints. My wife and I would be happy to recommend Threadgold Architecture as a business that still promotes the old values of honesty and integrity.”
