This 2 bedroom home was designed customising the modular, prefabricated building system of our sister company Joint Modular to suit the particularities of the site while being easy to transport and construct.

On a steeply sloping block near the Bangalow heritage conservation area and overlooking the hinterland, the new home needed to comply with certain design requirements such as a particular roof pitch. Two basic Joint modules form the private spaces while a custom high ceilinged section between them creates the living areas that open to both the front and rear gardens.

BANGALOW BUNGALOW | BANGALOW 2018

This 2 bedroom home was designed customising the modular building system of our sister company Joint Modular to suit the particularities of the site while being easy to transport and construct.

On a steeply sloping block near the Bangalow heritage conservation area and overlooking the hinterland, the new home needed to comply with certain design requirements such as a particular roof pitch. Two basic Joint modules form the private spaces while a custom high ceilinged section between them creates the living areas that open to both the front and rear gardens.

The home was largely constructed in a workshop in Wollongong and then transported to Bangalow for assembly. Modular wall panels with plywood cladding form the shell with a composite metal roof, while hardwood screens throughout provide privacy and shading.
