  • Status: Pending
  • Prize: $350
  • Entries Received: 19

Contest Brief

We would like you to design a house on a lot of about 600m2. The design can be design with a flat concrete roof, but must still have a "homly feel" rather than a modern office look. The front of the property is about 31m long, but the house must be at least 7 meters from the road, so design accordingly. The house needs to meet the following requirements:
1. it should be 2 stories and about 260-300m2 each floor. Note that the lot is wider in the front.
2. it should have a contemporary design, but it should match the house next to it (see image)
3. parking for 4 cars minimum. no need for garage. Parking can be in front
4. Outside must look like a house, but inside will be appartment living style
5. There must be a common area (living room, dining room and kitchen) on each floor. The ground floor can have a slightly bigger common area than the second floor.
6. The must be at least 7 bedrooms. Each bedroom should hold 2 people. The room should be enough for 2 individual wardrobes and 2 twin beds, and a desk, but must not be cramped
7. Each bedroom must have a bathroom. The bathroom design should be compact, but adequate
8. The bedrooms on the second floor can be slightly larger than the ones on the ground floor.
9. 3 bedrooms on 2nd floor, 4 bedrooms on ground floor.
10. Construction and design can be modern and nice, but nothing fancy. No high ceilings, etc
11. Costs during construction should be considered while designing
12. Construction will be made with steel columns, (not poured concrete) so please indicate clearly where columns will be
13. Do not create large overspans which will increase cost of horizontal steel beams
14. Interior walls will mostly be concrete board. We would like to avoid as much use of bricks and morter.
15. Alternative suggestion for exterior walls are welcome, instead of bricks and mortar, but walls should be strong and secure.
16. Each bedroom will have their own split unit AC, so consider one or more hidden areas to keep all the compressors
17. to be judged for the contest you must provide at least 1 full blueprint per floor and a 3D front view of the house AND THE PLACEMENT OF THE HOUSE ON THE LOT
18. Winner of contest will have to provide detailed drawings of foundation, steel structure, 3D renders of different angles, electrical and plumbing as well as any other necessary document required for construction
19. Winner will have to provide all dwg files as well, so they can be locally adapted to obtain building permits.

    I was about to star to design but I find out that when you scale on AutoCAD the drawing the measurements don't fit. So be careful because you maybe will get a lot of designs but if you try to use those designs in real life you will get troubles, I am not going to star the design because I will not feel good myself doing a design that will get you trouble because of the measurements. As an architect I suggest you to check with a surveyor in order to get accurate measurements of the terrain.

    For everyone's clarification - you do NOT need to design each room. Just the bathrooms, which will all be the same (according to project description) The rooms must also be all the same (or very similar) size. I only want the layout of kitchen and common area (living room with a TV and Dining table for 8ppl) The colors of the interior and exterior do not need to be matching to the furniture. The doors and windows can be basic standard sizes. When we say you needto provide angles of 3D rendering, this is just for the exterior, so we can actually visualize the design. You dont have to worry about special lighting and a garden, etc. just the basics. If your design is very good and you win, and we want landscaping and room designs, etc, that will be a ANOTHER project. What we DO want from the winner is the foundation drawings and the way the house will sit on the lot. This can be submitted AFTER you have already WON, so you dont have to do it in advance!

      Please Architects don't produce foundation drawings. Meet a structural engineer to do that. Thanks

      I am not asking for calculations....the drawings only. this is usually provided by the architect.. the concrete calculations, size of the footing, thicknes, etc is done by the engineer.

      You do NOT need to design the layout of each room or most of the interior. just the bathrooms (they will all be the same) and the one kitchen, which again, can be very basic. There does not need to be a walk in closet, garage, den or any of that. No need for fancy glass doors and big patios, which usually are what a customer wants. This is a low budget basic intern housing

      "For that amount i would deliver a first group of conceptual drawings such as general lay out diposition/Floorplants and 3d rederings, and fron elevations." - This is OK. This is what we are looking for + the foundation drawing IF you win. i.e where the columns would go, and where the footings have to be poured. they DO NOT need to be technically calculated. that will be done locally

      Yes, but i do not need structural calculations, etc. Just the foundation drawings. We based the award on previous contests held. 3D renders are not important. mainly the layout and the front view.

      Unfortunately we cannot do that right now. We are not asking for a creative or fancy design. Just a basic practical solution that meets the requirements.

    Also, the outline of the house design must be placed on the LOT, so we can determine the spacing, etc.
