Granny & Co Homes


THE UPTOWNER (50-100m2)

The Downtowner, Uptowner and Metro are a series of 2-bedroom small home solutions designed by Metamorphouse Architects specifically for accommodating 2 unrelated people at the same time (eg. housemates in a share-house) in a small home; a novel idea for a granny flat but a realistic situation for many granny flat owners who rely on rental income to pay for their investment.

The Uptowner is the ultimate private hideaway that borrows from the Downtowner and improves on it.

Like many of our 2-bedroom designs the Uptowner has separate “living” and “bedroom” zones which help to enhance privacy. For this reason, built-in-robes are positioned on either side of a central Bathroom, it also frees-up external wall space for a variety of window and sliding glass door options, most importantly providing the bedrooms with at least 2 openable windows which ensures good quality natural light and cross-ventilation; necessary for a healthy home.

Each bedroom has a private entry and an individual Deck or Courtyard, an unusual feature for a granny flat. The bedrooms are fitted with built-in-robes (customised to suit your needs) and are big enough for a queen bed with side tables.

The layout has a good flow of space considering its size. A central galley kitchen helps to separate the public and private areas. One end leads to the central Bathroom (which has been built out to the eaves for additional space and light) the other opens out to a large Living Area. The kitchen, wardrobes and cupboard are custom-designed to suit your needs.

High, cathedral ceilings in the indoor and outdoor lIving areas create a spacious light-filled area. The addition of a large stacker or bi-fold door provides a great transition between interior and exterior areas.

The Deck is fully roofed and is large enough to furnish and comfortably entertain a group of visitors. An optional full-length cupboard can be built down one side of the Deck (useful when facing west or a nearby neighbour) incorporating your Laundry / Wet Bar and additional storage or barbeque area. Quality handrail and balustrade are fitted to the remainder of the Deck where needed. A wraparound verandah is a recommended option.
