This was our first commission as meik architects, and was designed for a professional couple on a shoe string budget. Creative use of standard components was required and the final design comprises of  a pitched roof, L-shaped house with 2 bedrooms, and an open plan living area. This all takes in the amazing views from this site, and creates privacy from the property to the South.
