This display home, The Elan, exemplifies the exceptional quality and stunning design that clients can expect from Craig Sheiles Homes. Built on a small lot in a coastal site that is part of a developer-controlled subdivision, The Elan presents a strong, contemporary geometric look. This includes a bold façade that exploits both vertical and horizontal building elements, as well as a floorplan that wraps around a central courtyard.

Designed with passive solar solutions in mind, the home has windows at either end to promote the cross-flow of cool breezes throughout the home. The courtyard can be opened up on all three sides and features a pond, further enhancing this effect.

Thoughtful orientation and sunshading allow the penetration of the winter sun and exclusion of the summer sun, providing the occupants with maximum comfort and reducing the need for complete reliance on artificial heating or cooling methods. The designer of the home challenged strict developer guidelines to produce the contemporary beach house. The extensive use of wraparound glazing, in particular, provides a light-filled solution to the small lot design.

The house was designed by Craig Sheiles Homes’ in-house designer, who liaises closely with the construction team to achieve cost-effective, architectural design solutions. This enables the company to achieve clever designs that still utilise standardised construction techniques.

The Elan unites distinctive flair with simple planning, ensuring the house has a strong affinity with the central courtyard. Key to the floorplan, the courtyard is visible once you enter the home, and guides access ways throughout the house. Each room has a direct visual link to this space, and all passageways have direct natural light cast upon them, thanks to the U-shaped plan. A spine staircase design adds to the overall lightness and delicate treatments of the house.

Elegant, contemporary and truly beautiful, The Elan demonstrates Craig Sheiles Homes’ philosophy for simple, clean, contemporary houses.

Craig Sheiles Homes specialises in contemporary passive solar design solutions for discerning clientele. The company’s clients are people who appreciate attention to detail, both in design and construction. Offering a top quality product at a cost-effective price, Craig Sheiles Homes designs and builds site-specific, client-driven houses. Direct contact with the in-house designer ensures every client’s home is given the attention it deserves and communication is maintained throughout construction for your peace of mind.

Building primarily in Perth’s western suburbs and coastal strip, Craig Sheiles Homes builds approximately six to ten homes each year.
