With rising housing prices and the general reluctance of Gen Ys to leave the nest, these days the Granny flat is the perfect excuse for early-twenties to bunker down at home - and why not? It’s an outstanding solution in today’s economy, providing accommodation, additional income, independence and flexibility.
That’s why Project Designs are transforming the idea of a humble backyard dwelling into a high-concept unit injected with elegance and modern design. Lifestyle Pavilions deliver all the flair, finesse and liveability of a prestige designer home but in a versatile 70-80sqm pavilion.
Project Designs’ Director, Colin Lewington says the concept was born after speaking with many long-term clients about the future of their soon-to-be-empty family home.
“Many didn’t want to be tied to a grand home anymore but they still wanted the surrounds and lifestyle,” he says. “The solution was to have their adult children move into the main home and themselves move to a smaller, more easily contained space.”
Each Pavilion has Caesarstone bench tops, bamboo floors and in-built custom cabinetry as standard, plus a select range of fittings including Hansgrohe Tapware and a designer Phillipe Starke basin in every bathroom, an extensive covered Merbau timber deck, open plan living and walls of glass to flood the interior with natural light.
Ideal for use as European-style, multi-generational living, as a pool house or a studio, the versatile Lifestyle Pavilions effortlessly combine today’s lifestyle and tomorrow’s needs into one contemporary, designer package.
