Sophisticated Architecturally Designed Entertainers Home, Eastgardens
With most of the bedrooms located on the first floor the house has been designed around large open plan living to the ground floor and the design makes the house feel as though it is not a semi at all but in fact a free standing house.
The client brief was that it needed to make a statement from the street which is where the Anthra zinc cladding by VM zinc and white glazed bricks makes that statement, this house un-apologetically stands out in the street without being offensive which is what the clients had hoped it would achieve.
From the custom made Cambia Ash pivot front door, custom designed and fabricated stairs to the unbroken internal polished render along the entire length of the house the finishes from front to back and top to bottom are of the highest quality with every detail spent on the finishes.

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 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.
