Designers often welcome limitations in a site or design brief as it gives them very defined perimeters to work with. This was the case for Effendy Nadzri Design Office (ENDO) who were approached by a couple who wanted to transform their semi-detached house into a comfortable home for their brood of five children and one grandmother.
“The existing house had an odd and narrow layout which was problematic for the family and the client requested that we create a cosy and comfortable home for their family of seven to enjoy,” explains Effendy Nadzri, founder and design director of ENDO.
The goal for this project was to welcome “lightness” into the residence's internal space while keeping in mind the homeowner’s budget. Taking this as a challenge, the team is set to improvise the spatial planning and maximise its natural light by connecting both the indoor and outdoor space by using simple clean lines and the materiality of the space.
