Designed and constructed by Startari at a cost of approximately $1,800 per square meter, these contemporary residences in the Adelaide beachside suburb of Hove are proof that Architecturally designed homes can be delivered at a budget comparable to volume home builders.
Comprising four bedrooms, two living spaces, and three bathrooms, each residence has been planned around a centrally located living area which also acts as the main congregation point for the occupants. Its generous volume of light-filled space was made possible by its 5 meter high raked ceilings and high-level windows, which also provide pleasant outlook to the large eucalypts trees on the neighbouring properties.
A second living space with adjoining bathroom, is situated on the first floor and utilises the often-wasted attic area. This space offers the residents a flexible, multi-use space that can be adapted over time to suit their lifestyle and requirements, from study to children’s room, parents’ retreat, fifth bedroom or guest suite.
Completed in 2020, these residences were made possible on a modest budget through efficient planning and clever use of standard construction methods and materials, and is a perfect representation of the firm’s commitment to zero waste.
They demonstrate good planning, thoughtful solar orientation and tasteful design costs nothing more, but delivers far superior outcomes in design, functionality, liveability, and finish.
