Demolish existing original home and construct a unique architecturally designed duplex close enough to the city for convenience but far enough away to feel remote and relaxed.
Working with a cleared level block is a builders dream. We were faced with the usual challenges that present themselves when building close to the city like parking, workzone permits and tight streets to get trucks down. We were so lucky to have cooperative and patient neighbours to ensure we could continue progress at ease. The concrete split level slab to the ground floor and recycled brickwork walls ensured the 1st level of this 3 level build had the robust look needed to support the 2 levels above. With Scyon Linea cladding for the upper floors and an interesting colour scheme this project is easy to look at.
Internally on both sides of this duplex, there are unique and quirky designs/finishes that really give these homes the warm feeling you need for a young family to feel comfortable in.
It's all in the detail
With the architects and clients being all ladies, there was never going to be a shortage of detail in this build. It was a privilege and refreshing to work with all involved and a really enjoyable experience with some extraordinary finishes and designs.
- Hardwood timber flooring and stairs
- Large balconies with City views from one side
- Jetmaster fireplace
- Hydronic heating
- Double glazed windows
- Burnished concrete floors
- A unique colour scheme both internally & externally
- Recycled brickwork
- Prominent bathroom floors with terrazzo tiles
- A combination of cedar, blackbutt and aluminium windows
What the client said
"Working with MATTBUILD and our architects Commonplace was a pleasure. Our project was more complicated than a typical rebuild with two couples, two homes with different needs and real budget constraints. But the process was an absolute success and we love the result. A massive factor in the success of the project was the open, honest, constructive and engaged communication channels that everyone maintained throughout. MATTBUILD were invariably friendly, honest and professional. Building a home can be a stressful project but I looked forward to weekly site visits and enjoyed the process. We would definitely return to MATBUILD for any future project and wholeheartedly recommend them to others. Thanks team!"
What the Architect said
“We cannot praise our foreman Grant, accounts manager Karren and the Matts of MATTBUILD highly enough. Throughout the project they were positive, patient and clear in their communication with us and our clients. Working with MATTBUILD was easy and we hope to collaborate with them again in the future.“
