I am looking for some suggestions in the design of my new house which I will be building in Adelaide.
My block is 9.6m wide and 35.36m in depth and is South facing... and planning to build a 3 BR + Study+ WIP + Living+Dining and Alfresco.
I am bit confused what should be the ideal location of Alfresco.
Should I plan it on the North East corner of the house plan or at the North West corner of plan..

I guess this would depend on what time of day you’re most likely to be using the alfresco. If you mainly use it for entertaining in the evenings for example, the west setting sun may make it very hot then, as well as glarey, so I would pick the NE side

Oh but I would also weigh it against what room is on the other side, and which is likely to be used more often.

Hi, I agree also with considering a centrally located alfresco. The issue you will have on a fairly narrow block and having the alfresco on the rear is this is taking up valuable north aspect.
My suggestion if you can is to cram as much of your main living spaces into that north end, and have your alfresco somewhere central....preferrably east side, but west can also help with shading your other west side rooms.

Outside your kitchen window area , could probably see pool from sitting areas in family room also and most important from where you will be distracted a lot in your kitchen.
