AVID’s newly launched Duo live-work home designs

By Emma Hawkins.

For the last month, I have been working on the styling of AVID’s newly launched Duo live-work home designs in Cranbourne West. I was so excited to work on this project, as it was something new for me, away from styling events and developing editorial content for brands. I knew I would enjoy it, but I had no idea how passionate I would become about the overall designs and concept of this new affordable live-work housing development.

AVID’s Duo live-work home designs are an affordable housing solution for Australia’s small business owners, sole traders and entrepreneurs (like myself).

By combining a residential and business address in one, the revolutionary Duo product is a housing option that delivers financial economies to home-based Australian businesses, by easing the financial commitment of needing both a mortgage and business lease, while also giving businesses and families the flexibility to grow. AVID has designed a wide range of spacious floor plans for two and three bedroom residences inclusive of office, showroom and/or storage spaces to suit a myriad of business needs, with prices starting from $401,500.

It really gives you the best of both worlds and for me personally; the biggest selling point is taking out the commute from your life and having a separate working place from your home. I commuted from Geelong to Melbourne for years and it really took a toll on me. I needed to change something, as I knew down the track I wanted to start a family and I didn’t want to take three hours out of my day to spend in the car getting to work. I decided to start my own business on my dining table, and whilst that was fine for the first year, as my business grew so did the paper work and mess around the house. Hence, why I am so excited about these home designs, to me they just make so much sense and it’s a win, win for everyone.  The live-work home designs are a smart way to reduce your outgoings, while also giving you back quality time with your loved ones by getting rid of the dreaded commute. Further, the independent live-work spaces that are specifically designed to meet your businesses needs, means no more dining room table covered in paperwork, or crowded garage and driveway with cars spilling out into the street.
