Skylight house plans. Natural light for the entire house
Modern living requires space and natural light. The need to reduce space and costs must be balanced with ingenious solutions for a comfortable and bright house. Here are three modern and classical skylight house plans.
The first project is a modern house designed by Andrew Burges Architects in Sydney, Australia.
The starting point was rethinking and adapting an existing dwelling with improved natural light and a better connection to the outside.
The house is 2,207 sq ft and was designed for a family of 6. Initially planned as a two level option, the architects considered the budget limitations and they came with the best solution of a compact single level. It features three bedrooms sharing a bathroom and a master bedroom with bathroom, a living with a dining and an open kitchen, and another two connected living rooms, where a library, a study or a media room can be designed.
Skylight house plans. Two storied villa
The second project is a two storied modern villa, signed by John Maniscalco Architecture from San Francisco.
This villa is built on an uneven surface plot. The front entrance is at the basement provided with a central interior yard.
The other entrance leads to the main floor, where all living spaces are. The several skylights used allow for the entire house, even the bathroom, to be filled with light.

Skylight house plans. House with attic
Finally, here’s a Romanian project for a two level home, with attic, that presents a traditional look. Its living area is 1,859 sq ft and the ground area is 1,212 sq ft. The house has a garage for one car.
On the first floor, the living and the dining room are divided within the same space, while the kitchen is in a separate room. The living has direct access to the back porch.
The upper floor is a night area, featuring four rooms, a bathroom and a dressing, that enjoy natural light through the attic skylights.
