simple house design
This architect designed simple house design, results in an efficiently planned and passive solar designed three bedroom residence. The layout encompasses 2024 gross square feet/188 square meter open plan living space and 345 square feet/32 square meters of sun drenched exterior living area. The spatial layout ensures a thermally efficient passive design.
The well considered planning and space relationships create a simple house design that can utilize reinforced slab on ground construction or the cost effective patented prefab footing system. The simple house design separates the open plan living area by generous sized 8 feet/2400mm high clear anodized end-sliding doors from the outdoor alfresco.
The space relationships strategically locate the living space for access to the winter sun which is integral to performance as an energy efficient passive design. The southern living space connects and spills out onto the alfresco to encourage indoor-outdoor living which is embraced in our western lifestyle.
The architectural design and passive design are achieved on a small budget by incorporating a patented prefab footing system, solar hot water and wood fuel firebox for wood fuel boosting. Visitors to the passive house are greeted with a large 2400mm high double glazed timber pivot door and are only then ushered into the passive house’s open plan living areas.
The architect designed kitchen incorporates the latest porcelain panel selections with a 4 feet/1200mm wide kitchen island bench. The kitchen island benchtop maximizes interface between the kitchen hub and adjacent living area. The kitchen design features porcelain panel perimeter benchtops, color backed glass and Blum Adventos lift overhead cupboards cantilevered above the benchtop height slot window.

“I’ve known Stuart for about 8 years. At all of our consultant meetings I’ve been impressed by his polite, professional attitude and in-depth knowledge of his profession. His prices have always been fair and very competitive. He has a knowledge that can also save you time and money. He will always make an effort to follow things through quickly and advise you so that you may gain the best outcome for your project. With these things in mind I can thoroughly recommend Stuart.”
“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.”
