Archisoul Architects Feature in Houzz: When Two is Better Than One: Duplex Questions Answered

Houzz has put together an article answering all your questions on duplexes

“A duplex design is typically two buildings that are joined together, either side-by-side or one on top of the other”, says David Homer, project leader at Archisoul Architects.

“Typically these buildings are cleanly divided by a single wall or floor, however with more complex floor plans the two buildings can be more intricately connected, sharing several walls and sometimes courtyard spaces too,” he says.

What are the main advantages of building a duplex?
Homer says:

  • You can offset some of the building costs against the sale price of the second dwelling, making developing a dream home a far more achievable goal.
  • Two families could purchase one lot and split the development costs, again making their dream more reachable.
  • You could potentially rent the second dwelling to generate passive income.
  • Duplex architects, engineers, surveyors and town planner fees etc can be amortised over the 2 properties and have savings.
