If you’re working with a property that is quite wide, you have the advantage to stretch out your home width-wise to allow for maximum natural light penetration.
The most effective way to get loads of natural light in your home is to have it not more than two rooms deep.
In a typical city lot, you won’t likely have this luxury. You’ll need to stretch your home depth-wise to fit a typical main floor layout. Since you have neighbouring houses very close-by, there isn’t much light coming from the sides of your home, so you’re left with the rear windows, and maybe one on the front.
This homeowner had a very wide lot to work with so we made sure to make the most of the width of the property to gain light in every room.
It makes a statement, don’t you think?
