Triplex Buildings

A building with three housing units is referred to as a Triplex Buildings. That means a triplex building has one lower unit or floor, one middle unit and a top the level floor. Generally, these are a result of combined apartments, but at times some houses are purposely built in this fashion.

Talking about the design of the triplex buildings; these are found both in townhouses and as separate units. At times, the basement works as first unit, the ground floor with kitchen and living space as the second unit and the top floor with bedrooms as the third unit.

Generally expensive, these are found as both condominiums and townhouses. While some of the dwellings have each unit stacked on top of the other, other developments have these arranged in a row side by side, separated by a firewall.

Triplex Buildings work extremely well in large and growing cities. These can easily accommodate 2-3 families and are often called “ multi-family units/buildings”. Some of the buildings have the same exterior facade while others have different exterior for different units to add modernity to the designs.

TYPES OF ROW HOUSES

Just like the name suggests, row houses are houses typically developed in rows and are generally found in cities where space is often limited. These days Row Houses are particularly common in densely populated cities. Though Row Houses are houses of compact sizes and shared walls, a category of terraced house, there are many types of row houses that you should definitely take a look at.

In this article, we are briefing about a few common Types of Row Houses. Let’s take a glance.

Federal Style Houses

These were the initial kind of Row Houses that emerged in and around the 18th century. The federal style homes were mainly located on main streets, the smaller ones on the side street and the smallest on the alleys. These were popular until the problem of noise pollution arose with Industrialisation and Urbanisation.

Alley Houses

Often referred to as Cracker Boxes, the alley houses are small sized dwellings. Just as the name suggests, these houses are generally found on alley streets, were just two room deep and hence called,”two-up, two-down”.

Swell Fronts

Generally, Row Houses were seen with monotonous structure, looked like large rectangular boxes standing straight. To break the monotony, some people experimented with the designed and gave it a curved facade hence called ”Swell Front Row Houses”.

Daylight Row Houses

Daylight Row Houses are the most common and the oldest when we talk about Row Houses. These were designed in a way that all the rooms can access sunlight, which generally lacked in Federal Style Homes, where the rooms at the back were completely devoid of sunlight.

Porchfront Homes

These were developed with porches and a small front yard and also a garage. This kind is popular with both single and multi-story dwellings.

BUILDING A UNIT IN THE BACKYARD

These days with growing families, the demand for bigger houses is also increasing. At the same time, urban areas are running out of land. In such a scenario, it’s important to renovate what you have in a certain style to make your life comfortable.

Generally most of the dual occupancy homes and terraced houses are accompanied by a backyard. Backyards are not used much by anyone these days and on the top of it, maintaining them also incur a lot of expenses. So, this space can be utilised efficiently to make the house and the living style efficient.

Build A Good Backyard Unit in Australia

It’s preferred to hire good architects and building designers for renovating and proper utilisation of the backyard. Generally people extend their kitchen or living areas to backyards using glazed mirror. That not only helps in adding space but the clear view of surroundings also make the home feel and look luxury.

While extending is one option, you can also build a separate unit outside. If you are also struggling with guests and find it embarrassing to not have an extra room, this is the time. It’s possible to add a unit outside in the backyard. You can also use the space to build a store room or a study room for the kids.

Building a unit in the backyard will add some space to your home and you will also be free from maintaining the backyards. It’s like killing two birds in one shot. If you are looking for architects who can Build A Good Backyard Unit in Australia, then reach out to Vaastu Pty Ltd.

BUILDING A TOWNHOUSE

Town House is a type of Terraced Housing. This term was earlier used to refer to the city mansions of the nobles. Townhouses appear just like Terraced Houses on the exterior but they have certain differences.

Townhouses are often confused with apartments. Although, they are different. Townhouses are individually owned properties and they have their own main doors and walkways. The patch of land that sets up a townhouse is individually owned unlike condos. Although these days rental townhouses are also popular. Townhouses with multiple levels are often referred to as “Stacked Townhouses”.

BUILDING A TOWNHOUSE IN MELBOURNE

While building a townhouse you must keep certain points in your mind. It’s very important to check the location. While those around city centers will cost you an arm and a leg, it’s always beneficial to look around for land blocks in developing areas. Townhouses built in exterior remote location will not just make it difficult for you to access outside market but the returns on investment will also be significantly lower.

Townhouses bigger in size are generally owned by wealthy as they cost a lot. It’s no harm to add pools and yards in townhouses. Generally, townhouses are developed for communities and with a lot of people living, it’s expected from the developer to provide a common pool, proper parking space, individual yards and other public amenities.

Before building a townhouse, the soil quality, sloping of the block etc should be checked and tested to determine if the area is flood prone or bush fire prone. Whatever you are investing in should return you good returns and for that, you must hire good architects and building designers to get the most of your money.

ROW HOUSES DESIGN

Row Houses are typically in demand because of their compact sizes and generally, people like to buy one near their workplace. They originated in the 16th century and is a type of terraced houses. Apart from being referred to as shared-wall dwellings, there is much more to it. Let’s take a look at that.

Row Houses are nowadays developed both freely and with shared-walls. These have their own backyard and front yard spaces. This kind of development is very common in places where the land space is limited. In modern row house developments, open porch and garage space are also available.

To crank up the elan, these are often symmetric and similar in design and color. Accompanied by a stone sidewalk, these row houses are just perfect for small/nuclear families. Generally, these are multi-story developments and very common in urban areas.

They originated in the west and are now spread all over the world. These were initially preferred because of their neat designs and comparatively larger space than apartments. The terraced homes are more or less considered the home of the working class but are preferred by a large section of society these days.

If you’re also looking for your own space at lower costs and that will accommodate your family and add ease and comfort to your lifestyle then visit Vaastu Pty Ltd.
