Multigenerational Home Designs Explained

Functional and Family Friendly

If you need a home better equipped to handle your large or expanding family, we have you covered. So many WA families have multiple generations living under the one roof, and it can often be just a matter of time before frustrations and tensions between family members escalate into an uncomfortable living situation for all. The feeling of living on top of one another and a lack of space for competing interests (study, play, TV, entertaining) can have a negative effect on everyone’s mental health and relationships. Since the pandemic, there are now even more families considering the viability of their living arrangements and current floor plan after being stuck at home for weeks or months on end.

We have long recognised the need for home designs that provide space and comfort for everyone, young and old alike, and at Ross North Homes we pride ourselves on our ability to design a variety of homes with style, function and harmonious family living in mind.

What do we mean by multigenerational (or multi-gen) living?

It looks different for each family – sometimes older parents move in with their children and grandchildren, sometimes adult children move back in with their parents, or extended family members move in together for financial, geographical, or health reasons.

Multi Gen Friendly Design 1 – The Saxon

This two storey home features a ground-floor guest bedroom complete with an ensuite bathroom and a separate entry via the porch, making it perfect for those living with elderly parents or grandparents who want to avoid stairs. It works equally well for adult children who want the freedom to come and go as they please without disturbing the rest of the home.

Multi Gen Friendly Design 2 – The Matterhorn

This incredible home design features the same ground floor guest bedroom with ensuite access as The Saxon with the added benefit of a second living and kitchen area as well as a second laundry, so that the front section of the house can be utilised to give parents, adult children or guests staying over for extended periods their own spacious quarters in which to reside independent of the rest of the home. There is also plenty of room for when the whole family wants to gather together with an open plan living/kitchen/dining area and large alfresco to the rear of the home plus a separate theatre room.

Designed with care and built to an impeccable standard, we have proudly provided many WA families with the ultimate multi-generational home. If you need more space and privacy or are considering your family’s future needs, contact our friendly consultants today so we can discuss building your new spacious and purposefully designed family home.
