Illustrating Row House living: the lifestyle that comes with the home

27 January 2022
A 5 minute read by Hiromitsu Abe

Hiro, from our partners, Sekisui House, shares three sketches illustrating what life could be like inside a Row House home

Following our previous blog, Illustrating Town House, product design manager, Hiromitsu Abe, has created a brand-new set of sketches, this time depicting life inside Row House.

Row House is our modern reinvention of a classic terrace mews home.

It was designed to enhance the well-being of the people who live inside it by offering space, light, and choice, as well as a number of lifestyle enhancing features that are unique to this home type.

Row House comes in a range of sizes from two, two-and-a-half, or three storeys

01 — Two, two-and-a-half, or three storeys

These sketches shows a spacious three-storey Row House home.

With 116 sq m of space across three floors, it’s ideal for families with children, couples moving into their first home together, or individuals who enjoy having plenty of space to themselves.

But as Row House was created to give you the freedom to live how you like, we also designed two more options.

With two-and-a-half storeys (103 sq m), your home will feature a private roof top terrace, or, if you’re a first-time buyer, starting off with a two-storey home (79 sq m) might be the perfect option for you.

Three-storey Row House homes can have up to four bedrooms, two on the middle floor and two on the top floor

02 — Flexible, configurable layouts

Inside, you’ll find even more options.

Row House was created with a number of flexible layout – and you can design your dream one using our online configurator tool.

The sketch shows a popular layout with two bedrooms on the top floor and two on the middle floor (or in this case an adults’ snug and a nursery).

But you also have the option to choose an impressive, fully open floor or master suite with walk-in wardrobe and ensuite at the top of the house.

Open floorplans on the ground floor of Row House

03 — Multi-purpose open-plan living space

Building homes that can facilitate open-plan living is really important to us.

We want to create spaces that bring the whole household together – and this is exactly what you get with an open floorplan.

Within the same four walls you can cook a family dinner in your centrally-placed kitchen, help your children complete homework at table, chat with friends on the sofa, read in a quiet spot by the window, work from home, and host dinners that lead into cosy cinema nights.

The Ground floor of Row House will lead you out to your own private garden terrace

04 — Private terrace

Your ground floor open-plan living space will lead you towards your private garden terrace.

Introduce planters and potted trees, and add garden furniture, a hammock or a hanging chair, and solar lights to create your outdoor oasis.

The space is ideal relaxing or for enjoying fresh air during working from home days.

Read our Garden Philosophy blog to learn how to make the most of your terrace’s aspect.

Row House homes are designed with storage in mind

05 — Efficiently-designed rooms with plenty of space for storage

No space was wasted during the making of Row House.

We wanted you to be able to use every inch of every room with ease.

The room shapes you’ll find inside are not only easy to decorate, they were designed with storage in mind.

So, you’ll always find the perfect spot for free-standing storage and clothing rails, shelving units, or full-wall built-in wardrobes (as you can see illustrated in the top floor sketch).

Row House homes come with huge windows on every floor

06 — Huge windows on every floor

A signature House by Urban Splash feature is an extra-large window – and Row House is full of them.

On every floor, you’ll find huge, floor-to-ceiling windows that let the natural light come flooding in. Rooms feel even bigger and brighter – instantly lifting your mood.

Plus, you’ll feel even more connected to the great outdoors (even on the days you don’t fancy leaving your home).

Soundproofing between storeys create a peaceful home

07 — Peaceful rooms

With modular homes like Row House, there’s a ceiling and a floor between each storey, increasing the soundproofing and creating a far more relaxing environment inside the house.

This means you can enjoy an enhanced sense of privacy whenever you need it – whether that’s peace and quiet in your bedroom after a long day, a quiet hour of concentration while working from home, or uninterrupted ‘me time’ in bathroom.

08 — Bonus space

Row House was also designed with utility areas.

A ground floor utility area – tucked away neatly under the staircase – can easily be transformed into a cloakroom, a pantry to further extend your kitchen space, or into something even more exciting like a wine store or mini bar.

You could transform a middle floor utility area into a laundry station to save yourself multiple trips up and down the stairs.

You’ll also find even more bonus space in the family bathroom – where we built in an extra utility cupboard.

Row House homes are available at East Float, Wirral Waters, in Birkenhead, and at Port Loop, Birmingham – where we’ll soon be opening our first-ever Row House show home.
