Adapting to change: How a global pandemic is shaping our future homes

Read More
What a time we’re living in! Our world is changing, and rapidly too. As always in the construction industry we must adapt to the current climate, in whatever form that may be. With such a shift in how we’re living our day to day lives, how we design our homes going forward has indeed changed too.
So, what will home design look like as we move through the pandemic and come out the other side?
Houses over High-Rises
High density housing serves its purpose, we’re looking at you down-sizers and young professionals, but lockdown in a shoebox is no fun for anyone. And in a time where hygiene is everything, apartment living can make it especially hard to reduce contact with shared surfaces and neighbours in close vicinity.
With this in mind, there is certainly a renewed appreciation for having your own slice of land and building a personal (hygienic) sanctuary. Whether you have acreage or a small inner city block, Kalka has a home perfect for you. 
Get more space, with less space – go up!
Not everyone has the luxury of owning a sprawling parcel of land. If you’re building on a small or narrow block, simple additions such as raising your ceiling heights and creating double storey voids in your new home design can make a huge impact, increasing your sense of spaciousness and creating an abundance of natural light.
Home is the new Workplace
