Grow­ing fam­i­lies need space and, more than that, they need adapt­able space to suit chang­ing re­quire­ments as their chil­dren grow.

Multi-pur­pose rooms that can be mod­i­fied and con­verted as the years pass mean fam­i­lies can stay in the home rather than move sev­eral times as their cir­cum­stances change.

These types of flex­i­ble de­signs are also suit­able for multi-gen­er­a­tional liv­ing, when grand­par­ents move back in or grown-up chil­dren stay in the fam­ily home into their 20s.

Modern­view Homes had ver­sa­til­ity in mind when they de­signed their three-bed­room, sin­gle-storey Aria 28, a home per­fect for a young fam­ily who need room to grow.

A high­light of the de­sign is a space sit­u­ated be­hind the home’s main bed­room which can be ac­cessed both from the main hall­way or di­rectly via the bed­room’s walk-in wardrobe.

Iden­ti­fied by Modern­view as a nurs­ery, the space could also be used as a study or home of­fice or, given its prox­im­ity to the main bed­room, even a small par­ent’s re­treat.

Sim­i­larly, the Aria 28’s me­dia room could be eas­ily con­verted to a fourth bed­room to ac­com­mo­date a larger fam­ily or guest room.


The en­try to the Aria 28 leads di­rectly into a long hall­way with the dou­ble garage po­si­tioned to the right, im­me­di­ately fol­lowed by the me­dia room which is re­moved from the home’s main liv­ing space. Its po­si­tion makes it suit­able as a bed­room or a teen re­treat.

At the end of the hall­way, the home’s main liv­ing area opens up the cen­tre of the house to the kitchen, din­ing and fam­ily rooms.

The kitchen has an is­land bench with break­fast bar for in­for­mal din­ing. Cae­sar­stone bench­tops and ap­pli­ances in­clud­ing an un­der­bench oven, gas cook­top, stain­less steel dish­washer and microwave are stan­dard in­clu­sions. From here the home’s out­door liv­ing space is ac­cessed through slid­ing glass doors, flood­ing the area with light.

The large al­fresco stretches to the rear wall of the home, hugged to the right by an­other liv­ing space, la­belled the den by Mod­ern-view Homes, and also ac­cessed from the main open-plan liv­ing and din­ing area.


The Aria 28’s main bed­room is po­si­tioned at the front of the home with views to the street. An en­suite with shower and bath is at­tached and the walk-in wardrobe pro­vides di­rect ac­cess to the nurs­ery or small study.

The home’s other two bed­rooms are sit­u­ated in a sep­a­rate wing and ac­cessed through the kitchen. Both fea­ture built-in robes and share the home’s main bath­room. They are con­nected by a cor­ri­dor with a re­cessed bench-style study nook.

A laun­dry is also in this wing and has out­door ac­cess and a built-in linen closet.
