Split level house design is not as popular as other types of houses like bungalows or two storey houses. But, this type of house has its own advantages over other homes. If you want to have your residence different from the houses around, then you may go into a split-level type. Actually, it’s a house which is a bungalow and at the same time is a two storey house as well.
Likewise, a split level house is best for a sloping lot. It’s a type with a part of the ground floor at a different level from another part, usually because the house is built on sloping ground. Sometimes it is also referred to as a one and a half storey house or a tri-level because it has short stairs going to the basement and another set of stairs going to the upper level.
Anyway, we feature an Oriental split level design with a traditional home built on a flat ground. It features an elevated balcony at the main entrance with marble stiles and guardrails. For reinforcement of the structure, the exterior uses pillars with accents of grey-colored stacked stones on the bottom height and concrete on the upper height.
Moreover, the building looks very traditional by using maroon-colored bricks for the wall cladding in all elevations. The other parts of the exterior walls are treated with concrete finish in white shade, the blend of which created a contrasting but pleasant appeal. To heighten the traditional accent, the house carry the concept of cross hip roof assembly with maroon tiles and a dormer.
