These contemporary studio house plans deliver an indoor-outdoor living space consisting of an open-plan kitchen, dining, living, laundry as also include two bedrooms all contained in 753 square feet/70 square meters of gross floor area. The studio house plans also incorporate 452 square feet/42 square meters of sun drenched terrace and alfresco area which is ideally suited to extended in-law family visits or a separate artist’s studio. The size of the studio house plans harmonize with the majority of local authority planning schemes that contain clauses for secondary ancillary dwellings. When correctly orientated on your site, the raking ceilings of the studio house plans conform to passive solar design principles and ensure solar heat gain during the cooler winter months.

The studio house plans recognize the importance on sustainability and energy-efficient design principles and when correctly sited, achieve passive solar design principles by catching the winter heat gain when the sun is at lower azimuth and storing the radiant energy in the thermal mass of the reinforced concrete slab that operates as the heat sink. The calculated sun shading eliminates the worst of the summer heat gain through the studio house plan’s fenestration while awning highlight windows vent stale hot air along the northern elevation via ‘stack effect’ ventilation.
