This unique project originated with the demolition of an existing residence and clearing all site vegetation. The new construction began with a basement, then two subsequent floors above. The basement includes a five-car garage with a turntable, storage room, services room, bathroom and large functional space or multipurpose room. The ground floor was expertly designed for entertaining, with a large open-plan sitting, lounging, dining and kitchen area. All four bedrooms are located on the first floor, including three kids' bedrooms, each with their own wardrobe and private ensuite. The master suite is separated towards the front of the floor, also consisting of a designated walk-in wardrobe and ensuite with double vanity and bath.

Here NBuilt worked tirelessly alongside their clients on their dream apartment renovation. The company workshopped ideas on how to make it an open-plan space and update the home throughout into a light, bright and open area, with plenty of storage and spaces that could be closed off to achieve a sleek minimalist design aesthetic that allows the celebration of their art collection. NBuilt worked with the cabinet-maker, electricians and plumbers to ensure they could achieve their stove and sinks in the island bench and overcame construction issues to achieve this.
This one is a wild story; someone else had been engaged to undertake the renovation and extension of this home. Unfortunately for the clients, this builder went into liquidation. After meeting the clients, Eltcon knew they had to help. The existing house was a quintessential weatherboard home with a recent extension to the rear of the home going outwards and upwards. The scope included the demolition of a shed, new internal finishes throughout the kitchen and bathrooms, new floors, new electrical fit-out, plaster finishes, installation of steel and aluminium windows, landscaping and an additional ensuite.
This stunning two-storey home has been beautifully refurbished from top to bottom. The interior has been completely transformed, with new electrical and plumbing systems installed throughout. The property has also been fully insulated and plastered and now boasts new double-glazed windows by Rylock. Inside, there is a new kitchen, laundry, two bathrooms and an ensuite. The exterior features new awning/canopies at the entry points and a fabulous rooftop terrace with a James Hardie privacy screen and glass balustrade. The home’s high-end finish is evident, and the carefully selected colours and tones combine to create an elegant and sophisticated aesthetic.
The existing Victorian dwelling (circa 1890) had already seen an extensive Art Deco renovation in 1938, and it was the echo of these curves and features that called to clients who purchased the property in 2017. Eventually, the original home was rearranged to create a grand master suite complete with ensuite and the existing kitchen was transformed into a library/sitting room. The remaining three bedrooms and main bathroom remained untouched, however, the patchwork of hoop and cypress pine floorboards throughout the hallway, entry and library were replaced with solid blackbutt floorboards to match those used in the extension.
This project was designed to renovate and extend an existing home. The house was transformed both inside and out, and unused space was claimed to extend the footprint of the building and extend the internal living space, complete with luxury finishing and dramatic lighting. The ground floor received a new entry foyer that opens into a dramatic light box, housing a steel and blackbutt staircase and flooring. The downstairs bedroom also received more space with the addition of an ensuite, and a laundry and utility room were relocated from an awkward space previously upstairs, along with a powder room and water closet.
The client’s brief for this project was to update and redesign the interiors in the existing building and provide much-needed garage space. They requested a new bedroom suite and a north-facing roof terrace all within a contemporary, well-detailed “black box” infill addition. Jardon Group was engaged to convert this old Hat Factory into a high-end three-bedroom residence with a spectacular view. The building included internal refurbishment of the existing residence and an extension to house the new garage, bedroom and new rooftop entertainment area. The external cladding was constructed using solid steel sheet, providing an industrial look that complemented the 1800s Hat Factory brick building, bringing a subtle modernness to the heavily heritage-overlaid building hidden within the bluestone laneways of Carlton.
This house was originally built in the late 19th century and then significantly altered in the 1990s. Robert Simeoni Architects were keen to reuse as much of the existing structure as possible whilst creating a renewed purpose to the overall sense of space, and the house as a whole. Two late Victorian houses have been combined into an elegant family home for a couple with adult children. Integrating the best of the past with the present, there’s a magical journey through the spaces, accented with soft lighting that animates both clients’ collections of family portraits, furniture and sculptures.
This project involved a substantial demolition of part of the existing house and an additional separate dwelling. The diversion of an existing stormwater easement was necessary to make way for a large basement excavation. The basement was designed in close proximity to the existing bluestone footings of the 150-year-old Victorian-era home, and Coben Building worked closely with the engineers to design a retention solution that maximised the basement spaces whilst preventing the undermining of existing bluestone footings. A matching heritage-style extension was added. The new addition is anchored to the site by what the architect described as “The Big Gorilla” – an off-form curved stair and lift core that rises through all three floors with 300mm thick off-white concrete.

In this charming display concept, the scope of work was to design and construct a single-storey, four-bedroom display home to suit a 14m x 28m block. The design of this space reflects Arden’s philosophy to provide homes for buyers wanting to step up to a new level in design, inclusions and value. A prime consideration was to maximise the solar aspect of the block and ensure an abundance of natural light into the home.

The Vintage showcases one of L.V.D Group’s award-winning floor plans that was custom-modified to suit their client’s creative and specific requirements.

Additionally, this 23-square home includes a separate retreat space, a large alfresco and a double car garage, as well as a walk-in pantry which is a beautiful extension to the chic kitchen. The facade was also custom designed with full input from the clients, focusing on Australian products and design features with a modern twist.

The expansive main openplan living room now flows beautifully out to an outdoor dining, which overlooks a glittering pool.
The artful Concept Build was tasked with building a throwback Palm Springs-inspired home that centred around an outdoor entertainment space. The building was to act as a blank canvas for the client to showcase ever-changing artwork and styling that wouldn’t date. A minimalistic approach included the grey-look concrete render floors, white acrylic render and large panels of glazing. Home automation was an important facet as the client wanted a house they could control off-site, such as the Miele ovens, hydronic floors and front pedestrian gate.
The clients’ passion for all things artistic led them to dream up an excellently unique concept for a home that not only showcases their style but also becomes a piece of art itself. The block shape was skilfully reflected with angled and curved walls, resulting in a modern masterpiece that contains very few right angles. An elevated living area and master bedroom on the first floor make this home designed to maximise the leafy outlook. The external facade embodies robust raw materials such as concrete-look render and fibre concrete cement panels, creating a striking contrast against the lush greenery.

This bathroom renovation is a true example of a family space that’s been given a new lease on life. The brief was concise; matt finishes with a spacious and open plan. The contrast between the white subway and terrazzo tiles has created depth to a classic palette, while the brushed-brass fixtures add a subtle, soft and modern element to the space.

This 7.3-star house was designed by Gruen Eco. The block faces north, so the house was set back on the block, with the living spaces facing forward, to maximise solar heat gain. The strategically planned eaves block the summer sun when it is high in the sky, yet let the winter sun in the cooler months when it is lower to the horizon. The sun’s rays can then come in through the high-performance windows to heat the burnished slab. Then the ability to shade the windows and open up the house for cross ventilation can also keep temperatures cool.
The owners of the building prioritised energy efficiency and sustainability by incorporating the five Passive House principles into the design. These principles include airtightness, thermal insulation, mechanical ventilation heat recovery, high-performance windows and thermal bridge-free construction. To ensure airtightness, the building envelope was carefully sealed to prevent unwanted air infiltration or exfiltration. The thermal insulation was also carefully selected to minimise heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer. Mechanical ventilation with heat recovery was installed to maintain good indoor air quality while minimising energy loss. High-performance windows were used to reduce heat loss and minimise condensation. Finally, thermal bridgefree construction was implemented to ensure that there are no gaps or areas of high heat transfer in the building envelope.
Croft Wootton Construction has been an accredited Green Living Builder since 2006 and incorporates industry-best practices for sustainable solutions in all projects. The company’s experience meant it was able to accommodate unexpected changes to the scope of works, delivering a home that sits at 18-20C without any additional heating or cooling, whilst quietly generating electricity that goes back on to the grid. The home is fully accessible from both the water and the land, even providing anyone with compromised ability full access to all levels of the house.
This project was designed to reflect the clients’ passion for sustainability in construction, something that is part of their larger focus on environmental consciousness. They have chosen to retire to Bright, choosing a north-facing block in a central area of town that allows them to live a comfortable retirement, engaging in the local community and setting an example of what can be achieved in terms of a sustainable lifestyle. The clients wanted to provide an example to others about how housing can be energy efficient without compromising design possibilities or the level of finish internally.
