Duplex & Dual Living

Our pole home system is supplied by Kline Construction System, is ideal for building duplex & dual living residences on sloping, narrow, remote, or difficult building sites.

We apply this system to create a custom design that works with your site conditions, to minimise your construction costs, while proving your key design requirements. We are experienced in, and have a range of options, in regard to addressing BCA requirements – such as fire rated party walls/floors/ceilings.

Below are a few examples of recent duplex, unit, and dual living projects. These projects illustrate to range of applications for our construction system – executive homes, mining accommodation, student accommodation, and unit developments on sloping sites.

Talk to us today about creating an affordable custom design for your project.


Kline Construction System designed and supplied new homes built in Lae, PNG, to house Executives working in the LNG industry. A range of dual living homes, 1 bedroom & 2 bedroom duplex’s were required to meet the needs of our client. This project has a number of unique design requirements, including a “safe room”.

3 Bedroom – 3 Bathroom – Shared Living

2 Bedroom – 2 Bathroom – Duplex

1 Bedroom – 1 Bathroom – Duplex


With the North Queensland mining boom has come the need for easy to construct, cyclone proof, quality single person accommodation.
Due to commence construction late 2012, this project has a common room design arranged in a variety of duplex, 6 unit, 8 unit, 16 unit, and 18 unit buildings. Each unit is roughly 4m x 4m including ensuite, with a balcony entry.


This home was specifically designed for student accommodation. With 5 bedrooms & 5 bathrooms on the upper level, each bedroom also includes storage and a study area. The lower level provides open plan living and a self contained managers residence – separated by a large balcony breezeway.


We have a number of clients wanting to incorporate dual living in their homes – either as a source of income, or to house an independent family member.
This example project provided an open plan home to the upper level, with a 2 x 1 bedroom self contained units below.
