Alternative two bedoom house type option 02 This layout is a variation on the previous design. Housing Design for All. Syed Munawar Ali. Entrance doors: Napaul Publishers Inc. All entrances should:
However designing for the most economical area may impact of the market value of the houses. Examples of factors which would effect market value would include the position and outlook of the living area, removing the entrance lobby to enter directly into the living area and the position of the downstairs WC. Also the overall appearance of the house should be considered.
For example the overall roof design and position and appearance of the staircase in the four bedroom semidetached house would be a significant factor to the market value. The size of the house used for comparison has a considerable effect and we would recommend testing a larger three bed house with an ensuite bathroom and also a smaller four bed house with a narrower frontage. In conclusion we recommend that to fully understand the cost implications of incorporating Lifetime Home Standards a wider range of houses may need to be analysed following discussions on setting guidelines on which market factors would need to be maintained.
Gross Internal Area sq. LTH 0m 2m 4m 6m 8m 10m Notes: Do not scale drawings unless by agreement wih HTA. Use figured dimensions only. Check all dimensions on site prior to commencing work. Drawings to be read in conjunction with other relevant consultant information. The kitchen is the minimum size that will fit a sink and the hall and stair have been minimised to their most efficient. The narrow front design allows for an efficient plot layout when used in terrace with the living areas orientated towards the rear garden.
Although this example does not include an ensuite bathroom to the master bedroom this is a common feature for dwellings in this category.
It is recommended that a further 66 SqM alternative version with an ensuite is considered in future phases of this work. Unit Area LTH 0m 2m Scale: Quick Summary of change to the house footprint The house becomes mm wider to accomodate the mm nib to the front door and the minimum mm advised between the kitchen units and the opposite wall. Refer to note on door sizes in appendix. This combined with the enlarged 1st floor bathroom increases the overall width of the house by mm.
The most significant change from the non-compliant example is that the living room moves to the front of the house and the kitchen and dining area are combined at the rear. The narrow front design allows for an efficient plot layout when used in a terrace with the living areas orientated towards the rear garden. To achieve an overall area as close to the original size a number of compromises have had to be introduced. Alternative two bedoom house type option 02 This layout is a variation on the previous design.
The through the floor lift has been relocated to the rear of the house to provide improved circulation once installed in the bedroom. This variation is presented as a second option as it is a slight deviation from the base due to the variation in distribution of space between the master bedroom and second bedroom.
Typology Basic Shape B 2 3 5 68 4. Check all dimensions on copied or reproduced in part, or in whole, without the express site prior to commencing work. A typical three bedoom house type This layout is typical of a three bed private sale house with an area representative of the average for this category of house. This layout has a seperate dining room and has reasonable-sized bedrooms with an ensuite to the master bedroom. The entrance to the hosue is via a central hall which gives a medium sized frontage width, which is common to two storey houses.
The medium frontage design allows for a reasonably efficient plot layout when used in a terrace with the living areas orientated towards the rear garden. Quick Summary of change to the house footprint The house becomes mm wider to accomodate the mm nib to the front door, the wheelchair accessible entrance level WC and the mm clear stair width.
Front door increased to be mm clear and mm nib shown. This combined with the enlarged 1st floor bathroom increases the overall width of the house. Alternative three bedoom house type This layout achieves Lifetime Homes compliance in a footprint which is 2. The most significant change from the non-compliant version is that the downstairs WC moves to the middle of the ground floor.
The plot width is kept to a minimum. It is mm narrower than the non-compliant version. The overall dwelling depth has had to increase by mm to maintain the matching living areas. Internal Unit Width m Approx. There is a generous kitchen which might be used for everyday dining with a seperate dining space to accomodate a family. The largest bedroom has an en-suite bathroom. The double frontage design with a central stair would be used in a detached or semi-detached layout, often with a garage attached to the side.
Quick Summary of change to the house footprint The house becomes mm wider on each side to accomodate the mm nib to the rear external door, the wheelchair accessible entrance level WC and because of the larger doors to the first floor landing.
Overall width of the house increase by mm to accommodate larger doors.
Also results in a 50mm wider landing at the top of the stair to allow for the side approach to bathroom door. Alternative four bedoom house type This layout achieves Lifetime Homes compliance in a footprint which is 1.
We have approached the alternative four bedroom type slightly differently than the two and three bedroom alternatives. To try to get the unit footprint as close to the original as possible we have combined the living and dining to allow an overall reduction in area for the living spaces reduced from a combinded area of Circulation space at first floor remains a significant challenge as the requirement to serve 5 rooms from one hall inevitablly results in a less efficient plan.
We therefore propose that a further study may look at the possibility of locating one bedroom downstairs. The most significant change from the non-compliant example is that the footprint of the building has been altered to become a narrow frontage. The recessessed entrance reduces the footprint but increases the complexity of the design and therfore may effect construction cost. Also the staircase has been moved away from the centre of the plan and the living and dining rooms are combined which may influence the sale value.
However the narrow front design allows for a more efficient plot layout when used in a terrace. This example of a small block of flats would typically be from three upto six storeys high This example has flats which are representative of typical housebuilder unit sizes.
Unit Areas: The common area is a relatively generous size with a large service risers core. Notes on construction: This example was designed to be constructed using a volumetric construction system but it would also be commonly be built using traditional masonary construction.
For the purpose of costing the following construction methods can be assumed: Beam and Block floors, pitched roofs and pre-cast stairs. AL 10X Scale: Summary of changes: SQM In this example the two bed unit does not need to increase in size to accomodate the requirements. The one bed unit increases in depth as a result of the larger bathroom. The communal area does not increase in size as a result of the larger lift. General Notes: This example of a small block of flats would typically be three storeys to six storeys This example has flats which are nominally smaller than the previous example with a very efficient layout in the communal areas.
In this example both the one and two bed units increase in size as a result of incorporating the LTH requirements. The communal area also has to increase in size to accomodate a larger lift shaft to accomodate the x car size. Appendix Lifetimes Homes Criteria The following text taken from www.
