Join the Dots proposes a realistic alternative to the suburban family home. Using thoughtful design, we have created a collection of compact spaces to accommodate the needs of a growing family and help shift the conversation from size to good design, emphasising the home as a place to share quality experiences.
With only an entry at carpark level, the house is comprised of a series of mezzanines. They are organised with a simple additive logic – each room is either a double or single length, joined by a small landing and stairs.
This is intended to be an accessible piece of architecture - one that resonates with a broad range of people and helps to shift thinking around the value of living small and how it might better enable us to connect with family, friends and reduce impact on the environment.
Join the Dots has the potential to work on a range of sites and (with a little adjustment) can be stacked in a row. It is designed for modular and prefabricated construction and to be craned onto site and assembled. It also can be added to easily, with provision for an additional bedroom and bathroom to be built on the roof terrace.
