Each student will design a single storey 3 bedroom house and provide the necessary documentation for the purposes of explaining the design to a potential buyer. The design of the house is entirely at your discretion but there are some limitations to be observed. The house should fit on a suburban block as shown in SITE PLAN. The local Council requires a 6m setback from the street boundary with garage an additional 1m further back and walls minimum 900mm from the side boundaries and 4m from the rear boundary. This is more than sufficient area for a well-designed three bedroom house. In 2012-13, new houses built in Australia had an average floor area of 240m2 (Australian Property News). Do not try to fill up the entire available building space with your house design.Your design should be articulated. This means that it should have some steps in the external walls rather than a simple rectangular shape.
