Home designs for narrow blocks
Both Popple and D’Alesio agree that if you do opt for a narrow block, then smart, well laid out and functional design is the key to creating space.
“One of the best ways to maximise space on a narrow block is to build a two-storey home, which generally has a smaller footprint, leaving more space for outdoor living,” Popple says.
The crown jewel of Metricon’s solutions to smaller build space is the Metro. With four bedrooms, a double garage and multiple living spaces, the two-storey home can work with blocks as narrow as 10 metres.
The secret lies in clean lines and thoughtful floor plans.
“The smaller you go, the more the design needs to incorporate open-plan, interconnecting and efficient spaces,” D’Alesio says.
In addition to the Metro, Metricon can adapt home designs to suit narrow blocks across all ranges.
