Whether you're interested in developing a neighbourhood or building an income property, a duplex plan might be the perfect fit for your site and project.
Designed with the master suites and living spaces on the ground floor with additional space and guest rooms on the second floor. These two-storey plans are designed for an aging-in-place lifestyle and fit in an urban context.
A Duplex is perfect for a new development or downsizing with an income property.
The medium-sized, very compact building shape and wall of south-facing windows make this one of our most energy-conserving plans.
Two bedroom Sydney Duplex Passive House features:
- Master on ground level for aging-in-place.
- An upstairs guest suite complete with bathroom, bedroom, and family room.
- An efficient plan that fits on virtually any urban lot.
