WHAT IS A ‘SPLIT LEVEL HOME DESIGN’?

‘Split level home design’ means building on multiple levels to accommodate land that has between 2.5 metres and 11 metres (or more) of fall.

WHY DO I NEED A SPLIT LEVEL HOME DESIGNER?

You will need a split level home designer when:

  • Your block of land has more than 2 to 3 metres of cross-fall – front-to-back, left-to-right, or a combination of the two.
  • Land development requires a split level home design to conform to the estate’s land covenant requirements.
  • Local council requires a split level home design as part of its building and/or development code.
  • A split level home designer can maximise your views, breezes, solar orientation and visually create more depth and character to your home.

FINDING A SPLIT LEVEL HOME DESIGNER

Project home builders and, in fact, most builders, don’t accommodate split level home designs. Their comfort zone consists of pre-designed plans for flat, or nearly flat, blocks.

Split level home designers incorporate more design factors than are applicable to standard homes. Designing split level homes is custom designing.

OTHER FACTORS TO BE AWARE OF WITH SPLIT LEVEL HOME DESIGNS

Split level home designs generally require a more considered and purposeful design. To maximise a property’s features, a split level home designer will consider such aspects as:

  • The angle of slope on the block.
  • How consistent the slope is across the block.
  • Where the slope starts and stops on the block in relation to where the house is to be positioned.
  • Whether there is more than one gradient of slope on the block (e.g. slopes a little at the front but steep at the back).
  • How to minimise the amount of cut-and-fill if building with a concrete slab-on-ground design.
  • Which views or aspects you wish to take advantage of.
  • The block’s position in relation to the sun to best manage summer heat and winter cold.
  • The direction of open windows and doors to take advantage of natural winds through the seasons.
  • Driveway gradients to satisfy local council building regulations.
  • Maximising natural light to avoid mould and dingy, dark areas in the home.
  • Drainage requirements for water flow during heavy downpours and/or floods.
  • Being aware of maximum building heights for any land covenants or building height restrictions placed by local council.
  • Considering shadowing over pool areas and entertainment areas.
  • Retaining wall heights and impact on existing neighbours and future neighbours if you’re building next to an empty block.
  • Structural requirements of retaining walls to satisfy local council building regulations.
  • Designing for privacy and screening both for yourself and your neighbour.
  • Considering how your new home will overlook existing neighbour’s properties.
  • Where the house is being positioned in relation to all the above elements.

Before planning and building begins, all these aspects need to be carefully assessed by an accomplished split level home designer.

Without actual experience designing and constructing for sloping and difficult blocks, bad design can easily result and the building can be hopelessly inadequate.
