A Real Breeze

The Mod 90 is a non-intrusive way to help solve home space issues.

IF a growing family brings the need for additional living space in your home, Atlas Living will provide the perfect option to expand, rather than relocate.

The innovative Mod 90 is built as an extension to an existing home, accessible by a breezeway, or as an individual granny flat.

Helen Lowrie, of Atlas Living, says the Mod 90 is designed with a busy family in mind; solving the space issue without disrupting their lifestyle.

"Building on the 'old way' has its problems. Family life can be thrown into turmoil as the living area of the home is turned into a building site," she says.

"Our solution is to build this extension as a stand alone structure and link it back to the main house with a glass breezeway. Building an extension this way gives home owners a high quality lifestyle at a fraction of the cost of traditional extension methods."

An overall focus on adding excitement to older homes by providing a fresh space and a sense of modernity is central to the Mod 90 design.

The spacious open-plan design comprising a kitchen/ dining/living room gives the extension a stylish, contemporary feel, which Helen says is ideal as a rear entertaining area.

"It suits families who are looking for a light-filled family and entertaining area," she says. "Most times this extension would be located to the rear of the existing home. It really depends on the size of the block and the availability of space around the existing home."

The kitchen is a galley design with an island bench overlooking the dining and living area, offering a seamless flow for year round indoor outdoor entertaining, Helen says.

"The kitchen is large and offers casual dining at the bench where the cook can be part of the action. The design can also be integrated with an outside entertaining area."

The Mod 90 features one bedroom with a great ensuite, which will be the perfect parent's retreat, offering privacy.

"Any finishes can be upgraded. This includes the kitchen benchtops or flooring finishes," Helen says.
