An L shaped Granny Flat is a Granny Flat that is flexible in design and can often allow for unique features of a block. Here we explore some of the benefits of choosing an L shape for your Granny Flat Design.
1. L-shape gives privacy
An L shape Granny Flat can shelter the outdoor area from the main dwelling or closer neighbours allowing for peaceful enjoyment of outdoor spaces. The L shape can be used to box off the backyard or courtyard, so the occupants are hidden from view.
2. L-shape zones the house
You can use one side of the L-shape design for bedrooms and the other for living areas, depending on your Granny Flat design. Creating separate physical zones for social vs bedroom spaces also helps with privacy.
3. Indoor-outdoor spaces
An L-shape granny flat design lends itself to a seamless continuity of indoor to outdoor spaces which support the Australian way of life! You can customise your design for sliding doors to decking and truly enjoy your indoor-outdoor space.
4. All windows see the views
Has your property got amazing views? An L shape Granny Flat design could make sure you can see it from every room of the house.
5. Build around things
Got a tree you want to keep? The L shape turns that tree into a features and allows you to build around it. Does the wind come from a particular direction? The L shapes Granny Flat design could protect the home by providing shelter if the right angle pointed into the usual wind direction.
