Spacious as your two-storey home may be, it only extends in one dimension — horizontally. Whether you have an open plan design or even floor-to-ceiling windows, your space is still constricted vertically.
Spacious as your two-storey home may be, it only extends in one dimension — horizontally. Whether you have an open plan design or even floor-to-ceiling windows, your space is still constricted vertically. For some, that’s not an issue. But in narrow block homes, a ceiling can limit airflow, space and light. But a void can fix that.
A void is simply the absence of a section of second-storey flooring, thus a connection between the first and second storey. The best way to understand its value is to place it in context.
Imagine removing the ceiling above your entryway to create a double-storey void; add a window above your door to let in natural light, and you can welcome your guests into a bright, spacious entrance. Or imagine a void over your dining room or main living area, where second-storey windows can now light your family rooms naturally. You might consider adding hanging lighting fixtures or sculptures, creating dramatic spaces for entertaining.
A void is an opportunity. Whether you’re building a new home with us or looking for renovation solutions for your current one, a well-placed void makes a strong argument for its inclusion on your list of wants.
