The clever layout of this renovation blends the original and the new seamlessly, creating an easy flow throughout the home. Designed to capture the views of the serene Dookie Hills and create casual entertaining spaces, this home is stylish yet welcoming with its rustic/natural exterior, stainless-steel deck, natural timber floors and cultured-stone feature wall. The master bedroom is away from the living spaces and provides a private sanctuary, which includes the beautiful ensuite making the most of the views from the bath. The study is located on the bottom floor which offers a quiet private space.
With a brief to create an enjoyable, open-plan, family home for generations to come, this award-winning renovation was delivered to the highest quality standard. The project sits comfortably in its surrounds having used several natural materials, such as rammed-earth timber and travertine pavers. The extension included a main bedroom and ensuite, sitting room, kitchen, dining room, living room, alfresco entertaining area and pool. The existing house also underwent an extensive facelift, with the surrounding verandas and all concrete being replaced. The original living room was transformed into a bathroom and laundry.
A fresh, new display home offering a point of difference through clever space-saving design, and smart-home technology for modern family living. The home features an electronic home-entry system, flexible automated lighting and the safety of digital, smart technology smoke and gas emission detectors. The internal design makes the most of the floor area, with a fixed-glass window to the IT station creating a connection from the back of the home to the main living area, making the home feel larger and more connected. The benefit of a third-car garage allowing access through to the rear yard adds to the already generous storage space within the home.
The ‘Alkira’ is nestled in the vibrant estate of Whitebox Rise. Designed specifically for the northeast region, key features focus on floorplan flexibility, climate suitability and elements of ch’i design, including abundant light, unobstructed vision and flowing layout. The home skilfully demonstrates flexibility and suitability as it sits just as cohesively on an urban block as it does in a lifestyle block or rural homestead. Strong design focus was placed on internal temperature stability to maximise occupant comfort levels. Passive design elements were also key with orientation, sweeping verandahs, ventilation and insulation-important inclusions.
Offering appeal from the street with its render- and-timber finish, this four-bedroom home reveals a high level of consistent, quality craftsmanship. Large, full-glass doors in the main living area overlook the magnificent in-ground pool that is placed in the centre of the home. A glass walkway over the top of the pool is a design highlight. The kitchen is showered in sunlight which is bought into the home via large, double-glazed windows as well as overhead louvre windows. The living room features gas-log fire place surrounded by stone and an expansive relaxing space incorporating the kitchen and dining areas. The lounge room flows out to another outdoor area for casual entertaining.
‘A functional, low-maintenance and comfortable home to cater for family when they visit’ was the brief for this custom build. The result was integrated indoor and outdoor spaces and multiple living areas in this beautifully designed home. The light-filled kitchen offers plenty of space, functionality and visual appeal, while a large double garage plus a storage room of the back of the home offered the clients room for their hobbies. Style, space and storage was paramount to the design of this home, built strategically by Todd Newman Builders to make the most of a smaller allotment.
This quality Southern Vale Home offers 36 squares under roof, with space for the entire family. Designed to capture the views over the client’s rural property, the generous, double-glazed windows fill the living spaces with light. Soaring, vaulted ceilings and a central wood fire-place add to the ambience. The kitchen features Ceasarstone bench-tops with stacker sliding doors opening to the meals area. The bathrooms present floating shelves and a contemporary free-standing bath. This build adhered to strict quality processes resulting in a home that the clients are very happy with.
Inside and out, this beautiful home is built of the highest standard of quality. Soaring ceilings throughout the home offer light-filled north-facing living spaces, including a rumpus area; adding extra room for the entire family. The kitchen is beautifully-styled with granite benchtops and a butler’s kitchen with closed-in cupboards and a sink. The alfresco entertaining area is covered for year-round comfort. Featuring four bedrooms, the master suite offers a walk-in-robe, ensuite with a large, overhead rain shower. Beautifully designed and offering a touch of luxury, this home was based on the client's request for their dream home and they were ecstatic with the results.
The topography of the block allowed for a split-level design and use of varied ceiling heights, giving the home an element of creativity. Offering practical and functional inclusions, the home was designed to accommodate grown-up family and partners, with specific areas created to be closed off into fully self-contained living quarters. The large glass atrium area forms the walls to the living area and frames the outdoor entertaining space, an eye-catching garden feature. The home incorporates maximum use of space with clever design features such as towel rails forming handles on drawers, mirrors masking secret cupboards, floor heating in wet areas, and a bathroom with dual vanity dividing it into two separate spaces.
Modern, simple, with clean lines and large, open, living areas for family was the brief for this award-winning home. Featuring full-height windows and corner sliding doors, it makes the most of its natural bushland setting and offers seamless indoor/outdoor spaces. The kitchen boasts an integrated design with no handles or power points and automated cupboards and drawers. The bathrooms have been cleverly designed as wet rooms with floor to ceiling tiles and underfloor heating eliminate the need for any glass shower screens. The home is connected by burnished concrete floors, with the floor colour flowing outdoors to the painted Hardie deck in the alfresco area. Bluestone, laser-patterned pavers around the tiled pool are a design highlight.
This outstanding home reflects a design inspired by high-class living and superiority in architectural features. Simple, clean lines and bold finishes shape the external streetscape while the keyless entry sets the tone for the quality and innovation within the home. The elegantly proportioned layout offers fantastic outdoor entertaining allowing for easy transition into indoor/outdoor living. The home includes four spacious bedrooms, master suite including wall-to-wall joinery and a spectacular light-filled ensuite. A bespoke study, gym, three-car garage with extensive storage make this design functional and liveable. The soaring ceilings and extensive window walls ensure ambient light and a blissful sense of space throughout. Built to the highest quality, the home is aesthetically pleasing whilst providing ongoing reliability and functionality.
These two townhouses have exceeded the expectations of the clients, and the project was completed to the highest of standards. Offering quality fittings and fixtures throughout, the designs include off-street parking, private balconies with views over sporting fields, three generous bedrooms and an open-living kitchen and dining space connected with outdoor entertaining. The beautiful staircase is a showpiece in each of the homes and a testament to the quality of workmanship. The design had to be easy to maintain with minimal landscaping required.
Offering a façade of black ash bricks, hardwood timber inserts, spotted-gum cladding and Scyon matrix, these four townhouses make a contemporary statement from the street. The interior was designed to maximise the narrow, deep block resulting in a light-filled central open plan living area with a northerly aspect. A functional kitchen featuring Caesarstone "raw concrete" benchtops adjoins the large dining and living areas opening to an alfresco entertaining area through large sliding doors. These overlook the private garden. Beyond the living area is the master suite with wall- to-wall robe and spacious ensuite, along with a large laundry area offering plenty of storage, and a garage.
The high level of finish, thermal performance and expected longevity of this house not only represents exceptional value, but also highlights its sustainability credentials. Large double-glazed windows are positioned on the north façade with minimal windows on all other sides. The house has no air conditioning, nor will it need it given these basic design principles, and the amount of insulation used. The home is heated by hydronic wall panels, fired by an electric boiler and offset by a large solar PV system. The hot water is also solar/electric-boosted. The windows and doors are custom-made and double-glazed. There are north, east and west-facing outdoor living areas, making this home a pleasure to live in year- round.
Located at the Victory Lutheran College in Wodonga, the design and construction brief for the project involved three general-purpose classrooms and small lecture theatre, interview rooms, careers and study spaces. In addition, the construction of a staff office, storage space and toilets will be undertaken as part of the project. The classrooms feature operable walls to allow for flexible design of classes and ease of supervision during exam periods. A mezzanine level included a dedicated study area for senior students. The new senior centre is intended to reflect overall excellence and complement the existing buildings on the site, which the college is developing and growing continuously.
The vision for the redevelopment of the Bendigo Tennis Centre was to establish the best tennis centre in regional Australia, capable of hosting national and international tennis events. The redevelopment has added to Bendigo’s ability to attract events of national and international significance to the region, along with providing high-quality facilities for the local community. The project included an eye-catching, modern pavilion overlooking Lake Weeroona incorporating a range of services, facilities and multi-purpose function spaces, four International Tennis Federation- compliant courts, seven club-standard courts, a children’s ‘Hot Shot Zone’ with three courts and new fencing, lighting, car parking and landscaping.
The brief from Bendigo Kangan Institute was to create a health and community centre of excellence'. The result is an outstanding structure for students and staff. The highlight of the facility is the simulation labs that replicate the real-life environment that students will encounter at work. These include areas designed as acute and sub-acute hospital wards with ensuites and clean- and-dirty utilities, aged-care wards, pathology wings, early-childhood centres and a live-in house. These labs provide the best quality training facilities for student learning. There are also large open- plan study areas and student hubs. A large interactive wall is included in the front entrance and there is a dedicated space for industry showcase events.
