Single-Family Home Addition ConceptBlind

Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
Description:
A concept design for a single-family home addition project consisting of four project elements:

1) Back door & Deck – Addition of a rear door to the back yard (right side if facing the house) and a deck. Door can be a maximum of 7ft 8in tall and 8ft wide. Deck can be a maximum of 22ft wide and 12ft 6in deep. Looking for a rear kid-friendly and kid-durable entertaining space concept that helps to bring the outdoors in, while promoting energy conservation. Include appropriate lighting and outdoor electrical power sources. Additional regarding of the back yard to create flat space, as able, without sacrificing existing trees.

2) Right-side Addition – Addition of a three-level addition to the right (North) side of the house (when facing house from the street). Looking for a concept that blends seamlessly into the size and style of the main structure. Addition is a maximum of 16ft wide and 32ft long, beginning at the back of the house and extending a maximum of 8ft in front of the main house structure. House sits on a sloping grade – first floor is roughly between 24in (back corner) to 40in (front corner) off ground level. Three level addition includes:

a. Basement bedroom – Requires built in closet and at least one egress window. Ceiling height must be at least 8ft (presume recess lighting)

b. 1st floor garage – Looking for concept large enough to accommodate an SUV plus storage, with a double door opening to the backyard. Will require steps up to back yard if additional grading is proposed (per item 1).

c. 2nd floor master bedroom/bath – Looking for a concept that includes a “medium” sized master bath/en suite, and a closet large enough to serve 2+ adults

3) New Porch – Addition of a large porch extending from the left side of the new garage/addition (item 2 above) along the entire front of the house and wrapping into the new screened in porch (item 4 below). Looking for a concept that blends seamlessly into the size and style of the main structure, while presenting a level of comfort and style as its curb appeal. Porch can extend a maximum of 8ft from the front of the house.

4) Left-side Addition – Excavation of an additional below grade storage/laundry room on the left side of the house (when facing house from the street), and a wide walk out egress stairway from the basement to the back yard. Addition of a screened in porch at grade/first floor level. Below grade room/porch/egress stairs can extend a maximum of 7ft from the side of the house. Below grade room should have both a door into the basement and a separate external entrance to the back yard/egress stairway. First floor screened in porch should have an entrance from the front porch and a separate entrance into the main house. Addition should be capable of safely sustaining the weight of a future second story addition. Appropriate water mitigation measures should be included for all sub-grade components and stairways.

Additional pictures and info can be provided upon request.
Wants:
• How well the four project elements are pulled together to appear like they were part of the original house structure, while adding a sense of comfort, elegance, and style.
• How well the proposed concept creates a more livable, comfortable, and usable space to support a young family of 6 + 1 grandparent.
• How well the proposed concept demonstrates a measurable increase in energy efficiency and conservation.

Winner should provide both 2D illustrations and a 3D virtual tour rendering of the concept proposal.
Don't Wants:
Design concepts that don’t fit the original model and overall structure of the house, or require a significant investment to remodel the existing structure.
Ask for Sample:
Looking for a design concept that can then be turned into permit-ready/construction-ready drawings through an additional project upon choosing the winner.

Additional Information
Increasing the price and adding some additional time in hopes of seeing some more submissions come in.

We are looking for you to use the references provided and match your design to our current home exterior aesthetic (color, style, etc.). We're looking for the *design* of the additions for this home to blend into the current home (vs. it being very obvious that the additions weren't part of the original house), and any entrances to additions (second floor room, basement room, etc.) need to have entrances from the current interior of the home (not the garage, for example). We will be following up this project with an additional one for the more details plans and specs - here we are just looking for the way that these new elements/additions could be added that all blend in together design-wise.

Really looking forward to seeing your work - thank you in advance for submitting your ideas!

My design concept is based on your request notes. So I didn’t try totally new concept and providing brand new design project from scratch. Terrain configuration is approximate, based on provided images and Google Earth location. New upgrade, attached structures are same as existing building structures. The interior shows only at new added rooms. This is conceptual design and not requires detail drawings and specification. Lighting is part of next stage, detail design for construction. I’m offering you a concept that adds new elements that are unique but also compatible with the existing structure.
Detail description is attached as PDF file. To view 3DS model please open this link https://3dviewer.net/ and load 3ds model. “A-Frame look” doesn’t work. It’s covering existing windows on the upper level. The furniture layout is conceptual and could be different.

RRM, submissions are requested in broadly compatible formats/standards (e.g.CAD formats: DGN, DWF, DWG, DXF, and SKP; Image formats: BMP, PNG, JPG, and TIF). Refit should be fine as long as final product is accessible by alternative software compatible with these standard formats.

,, Thank you for the submission. Could you please refine your submission of the interior sections to align with the current layout of the house (e.g., entrance to the master and basement bedrooms would not come from the garage)? Current floor plans can be found in the attachments. Could you also provide a basic 2D floor plan with proposed room/section sizes in ft? Thanks.

Mr. Mehta, could you please specify your preferred software, and if it offers a 3D virtual tour presentation option?
Fri, 08 Dec 2017 11:32:30 +0000
If you required 3d file only to view then i will provide the 3D pdf. So that i can design it on other software rather than autocad.

Sweet home 3D is not required for submission. Any free downloadable virtual design software tool is sufficient as long as it will allow us to view the file without software purchase.

Residential apartment design
We intend to have the following building on a 630 square meter area. 1. A duplex at the front (for me and my family) with a visitor’s room + maid’s room + kitchen + Dining + Living room on ground floor + maybe an ante room + visitor’s toilet. First floor shall have master bedroom + two other rooms + family living area. 2. Two units of three bedroom flats adjoining the duplex, one at the top and the other below. 3. We prefer the building to be of modern “box type” design 2. For the ground floor, it should be one washroom for all use and 2 bathrooms, one in the maids room and one in the guest room 3. We prefer to have for the first floor, a walk in closet and bathroom with double sink for the master bedroom and the other two bedrooms have their own bathroom too. 4. What I meant by adjoining duplexes is this... We intend to have one building accommodate my family at the front occupying the duplex I described above AND two others for two separate families. However, the ones for the other families do not necessarily have to be a duplex. It can be two units of three bedroom flats, one on top of the other. Whatever concept can fit into our plot of land so long as three families can be accommodated. Questions and clarifications will be answered as quickly as possible to provide a very good input to designers.
