With this two bedroom two bathroom home, our client already had a set of plans that required only minor modifications. We provided a quote for construction, first creating a BOQ listing all materials and labour costs required. With agreement on costings, we then built the home according to the BOQ and plans provided.
A rendering of this project has featured on our home page since our website re-design in early 2014, however I have not yet blogged about the project itself.
I had a family open brief for the style of this home in terms of the exterior and interior styling. There is on large central living space, that features large 9 metre wide folding doors front and back allowing the whole space to be opened up to the front terrace and large rear terrace and pool area. It is a bit of a cliché these days, to use the phrase "bringing the outside in", but this design really does blur the lines between the outdoor and indoor living spaces. To one side of the main living space is the master suite that features a study, bedroom, walk-in wardrobe and large bathroom with spa bath. To the other side of the main living space is three further bedrooms, bathroom, laundry and WC. The kitchen is open plan and joined to the main living space, with a pantry leading of it. The rear pool terrace also has access to an exterior store room. The pool surge tank and pump room are concealed beneath hatches in the terrace decking.
Construction of this home is now fully complete. Here I show a video of the computer rendering of the home. I have also included a slide show which contains both computer generated renderings of the design and the also photos of the finished home. As you will see, the renderings we produce as part of the design stage of a project do give an accurate impression of how the finished home will look. That said, there were some slight changes, mid construction, with relation to the look and layout of the kitchen, for example
