Classic Hamptons Inspired,
Everything about this Kingsford home was oversized including 4m high ceilings, large master bedroom, oversized bathroom so Gardner Construction had to worked closely with the clients to choose the right skirtings, architraves, and cornices to compliment the space.
The primary focus internally was to create a more open plan living space that would allow for entertaining, seamless interaction with the outdoor spaces and perhaps most importantly took in the natural beauty of the site. We built beautiful timber hallway with timber stairs at the end that stepped down and defined a new entrance to large open plan living, dining and kitchen. We designed and French provincial style floor to ceiling joinery creating an impact to this space.
Clients gave free range for Gardner Construction to work with our Design team to give their ideas and expertise on highlighting features of the house. The construction of the staircase including enlarging the stairwell window to maximise the light and create an impact in the stair case, design of the bathrooms and construction of new fireplaces and large walk in wardrobe were features that we invested time and money on to increase the value of the house.

Heritage-listed homes are important remnants of our nation’s history. Our client wanted to retain a piece of this history but was open to different design styles to give the home its own character not only by getting a facelift but have usable facilities. Homes of this age come with their own problems and Gardner Construction we able to work within the restrictions to alter this heritage-listed home.
This Sydney single floor, architecturally designed semi-attached 2-bedroom dwelling had been outgrown. Quality was the main focus for our clients and they had strong views on what needed to be included in the new house, it needed to be practical and functional for their large extended family on all occasions.
This house did not have a sense of connection and the floorplan was disjointed and not family friendly. Rooms were closed off, separated and did not allow light and flow into the spaces. They wanted their home to feel connected and open. Open plan living is one of the biggest changes in contemporary home building design. Our aim was that the kitchen was open to living areas and become connected to the backyard.
