Trade Street

Type: Residential, Addision / Renovation

Status: Unbuilt

Design: Gilo Holtzman

Budget: $130,000-$150,000

Brief: Connect the living area with the backyard garden, add storage, pantry, extra guest room, new kitchen and bathroom.

Design Strategy: Minimization of construction work and labours, reduce waste, reuse what we can & build in stages based on costs and needs. Together with low budget the adaptation of alternative construction methods was needed. The use of shipping containers for the 2nd level and steel supporting frame structure should reduce the costs by approx 20% [to conventional methods].
