narrow house plans
These narrow house plans deliver a low budget green building with low on-going running costs and 172 sqm of open plan living areas and 58 sqm of alfresco/terrace sun drenched external living area. When correctly orientated on your site, the narrow house plans with their raking ceilings, ensure that the architectural design conforms to passive solar design principles. Each living space can access solar heat gain during the cooler winter months.
The kitchen, living and dining spaces are the focal point of the green building that are connected to the alfresco and terrace by three sets of 8 feet or 2400mm high clear anodized end-sliding doors. The green building can be transformed into indoor outdoor living over the summer months. This efficiently planned architectural design can be constructed as either slab on ground or the cost effective patented prefab footing system.
The material palette of these narrow house plans incorporate Corten steel, locally sourced Australian hardwood internal timber flooring and ‘Monument’ paint finish Scyon Axon cladding. The narrow house plans achieve memorable space relationships on a small budget by incorporating solar hot water and wood fuel firebox for wood fuel boosting. Visitors to the green building are greeted with a generous 2400mm high double glazed timber pivot door prior to being ushered into the spacious open plan living areas.
The hub of the green building is the architect designed kitchen which incorporates the latest porcelain panel selections to the waterfall edged kitchen island bench. The kitchen island bench also connects and accentuates the relationship between the kitchen hub and adjacent two living areas. The narrow house plans of this green building also boast the latest porcelain panel selection kitchen perimeter benchtops and Blum Adventos lift coloured back glass overhead cupboards positioned above the benchtop height slot window.

The narrow house plans concept places significant importance on sustainability and energy-efficiency design principles. When correctly sited, these well considered narrow house plans cleverly achieve passive solar design principles. The open plan living spaces capture the winter heat gain, when the sun is at lower azimuth while eliminating the worst of the summer heat gain. The architectural design also feature highlight windows to maximize natural light through the daylight hours and vent stale hot air via ‘stack effect’ ventilation.
The narrow house plans colour palette also includes clear anodised window frames and Artedomus tiles throughout, while the wall cladding material finishes for these narrow house plans, combine horizontally formatted Corten steel with a single lock standing seam, which is juxtaposed against the vertically grooved Scyon Axon cladding for this green building’s higher BAL rating.

“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.”
