Building Heights

Residential Building Height

Height is one of the most important elements of any space or building. In todays residential drafting and building design landscape, clients are requesting bigger houses, larger rooms, taller ceilings and higher roofs. So it is therefore more important now, than ever before, for our homes to be designed with sufficient height for their intended purpose.

So residents of the City of Stirling in Perth, how can you ensure your house or space’s height is fully maximised? Well…read on!

The maximum building height, which is measured from the Average Natural Ground Level (ANGL) to the roof is different depending on the type of roof you are planning to build. If you are planning on using a pitched roof, the maximum wall height you can build is 6m. For a flat (concealed) roof the maximum wall height is 7m. And finally if you are planning on building a super stylish and popular skillion roof, the maximum wall height is 6m, on low side and 8m on high side.

It is also important to mention that these maximum heights do not include architectural features such as gables and dormers. The City of Stirling Council will exclude these features from the wall height measurements, provided they deem them to not detract from the character of the streetscape.
