Design Outcome

Outcome Checklist

  1.  The house and the site are designed together.


Creating the site cannot be done independently of designing the house. It is best to design the house, even in rough sketch form, when designing a site or subdivision.

Achieving the Outcomes

Design the house to the topography and incorporate retaining into the building. 
This minimises the cost of earthworks and can improve the quality of the spaces around the building. 

​Provide level access to the front door wherever possible.  
Allowing anyone, regardless of physical limitations, to be able to easily enter the building.
