Remuera Remodel

Our clients had purchased a solidly built, but stylistically dated, brick and tile home in an ideal location. They wished to remodel the existing house to include added internal spaces and to maximise use of the surrounding property to incorporate features that provide opportunities for outdoor living and entertaining.

They were keen to re-use the existing proportions and roof-forms to create a more spacious and gracious form, citing as inspiration, the design of several American Country Clubs and Golf Club Houses.

The aesthetic was to include slate roofs and light coloured stucco walls, over-cladding the existing warm red brick. This change of aesthetic also demanded complete replacement of all the existing bronze aluminium joinery and removal of the timber shingles.

Also included in our clients' brief was the addition of balconies and terraced areas with elevated views, all linking to a new pool with an adjacent covered outdoor seating area. A new bedroom with ensuite, a workshop, rumpus room and a new gym and wine cellar, were also to be added at basement level.

 All the options for redevelopment of the property were fully explored with our clients using 3D computer modelling and renders, before being incorporated into the final building documentation.

Like the exterior, the interior decor was firmly stuck in the 70s, so with the building work complete, our clients themselves undertook the final fitout and redecoration of this home into a form better suited to twenty-first century living standards.
