Never be afraid of ” Odd Shaped ” lots or properties. Most of the time they offer great opportunities for designers and architects to come up with extraordinary design ideas and shapes to accommodate both the resident owners needs, as well as the property, and still stay within the zoning bylaws and regulations.
This residence occupies 2400 square feet living space over 4 levels and has a 700 square feet private roof top deck with gardens and trees designed for relaxing and entertaining. The Main entrance at the street level was designed to also accomodate a protected carport for two cars.
Odd shaped properties, especially if they are small in size, are a perfect platform for designers, architects, interior designers as well as landscape architects to play and be creative. Odd shaped lots are most of the time also less expensive to purchase because many people have difficulty visualizing a home on them.
Do not be afraid to purchase an odd shaped lot, just make sure that you get a creative designer or architect to design your home for you. Odd shaped homes have lots of character and are fun to live in. Be BOLD and Good luck !
How would you feel about living in a triangular home, designed on a very odd shaped lot.
I just finished designing it, using the disadvantages to my advantage. One does not even know that it is triangular until walking around the property. It has a carport for two cars and roof deck for entertaining and/or sun tanning, with a garden area and trees.
For me, this has been a very exciting contemporary architectural and interior design project, and when completed I have hopes that it will be published in architectural and design magazines.
Many designers, architects, Interior Designers, Decorators and especially Owners of a house, condo, apartment, store etc. are very cautious to think outside the box and stand out from the rest of the group. If it looks old, it is established and safe.
What has happened to today’s Creativity??????
Is our generation not capable to come up with new ideas and creative design concepts to fulfill our needs?
The opposite is the truth!!!!!
We are more intelligent, have much more information at our finger tips, have much more materials and manufacturing processes to work with, much more skills to play with and much more complex demands than ever in the past.
Let’s be bold, lets stand out, let’s be US, let’s not be afraid to show everyone who we are, what we like, what we desire, what we dream off. Lets design of our spaces to be CREATIVE and also reflect our thoughts and feelings. Lets expose ourselves, our good and bad sides and be proud of it. No one is perfect, so why pretend…..be bold, be you and enjoy being true to yourself.
It is time to stand up, design and create our spaces without holding back and say:
THIS IS ME AND I LIKE IT !!!!!!
