Leura Blue Mountains

With a Real Sense of Indoor-Outdoor, for A Light and Airy Feeling

Tim and Madelyn’s award-winning home in the Blue Mountains has been designed to integrate the indoors with the outdoors, and feel comfortable all year round.
Their architecturally designed home follows the slope of the land and is split over three levels.
The one thing you notice when walking into their home is that it’s light and airy.
The window seat beckons you to sit, have a cuppa and read a book.

Damir’s philosophy is to build a healthy, comfortable home that lasts for 100 years.

Quality materials and workmanship are the key to this.

It took a year to complete construction and they moved in just before Christmas.
It was a difficult time to be building, due to COVID-19, and it all went to schedule. The original house was demolished, with minimal disturbance to the land, and a new 300m2 energy efficient home was built.

A tricky block in a bushfire flame zone – results in an art gallery-style with Passivhaus features

This home in the Blue Mountains is built on an old sandstone quarry and has been designed to look like a New York art gallery.

Minimalistic with no architraves or cornices. Its adaptable design is accessible for everyone as there are no steps. It’s extremely energy efficient as it incorporates passive design principles.

It was a tricky block as it backs onto a railway line, is in a bushfire flame zone, has a slope and is in an environmental E2 zone. Photos here>>

The scope was simple, we want a custom home with detailed finishes, that’s small and yet feels large. The result was a family home with modern elements, efficiencies and a clever design that feels like a large space for the family.

This home had already had a bathroom and laundry renovation with the owners soon realising that if more work was required they would need the help of professionals. Working with Linda and Asanka on a previous project no time was wasted and planning commenced straight away. With Split Building never shy to work in with an owner, architect or other industry professional we’ve learned more about the industry and individual needs then ever imagined and in the case of this project, how well a redesign of the interior space can feel. This clever design incorporated additional storage, a theatre room, open plan kitchen, new dining space, study nook and garage converted into an office, large fly over pergola and most impressive only requiring a 12m2 extension.

Major Lifestyle Improvement Makes for a Happy Christmas

We received a call just weeks before Christmas to find a home riddled with termites. Lucky our team is experienced with significant structural work and termites, and within six months we improved our client live’s forever.

Understanding our clients home is often their castle we had the awful job of advising a good portion of their beautiful family home was structurally damaged by termites. Our investigations, structural and termite reports and later finding’s revealed poor workmanship and design contributed to the failing structure. After processing the information again we took the steps to start the rebuild process and found we could better the original design and instal preventative measures. For owners Victoria and Geoff the priority with design was to ensure functionality and so the laundry and back deck was redesigned and within 6 months we had achieved this. The result is our client’s now get to resume with life and get to enjoy their home better than before.

Big Changes For A Growing Family

At first, our client required just some help with the complex structure, which later turned into completing all the external cladding and roofing.

Renovations and extensions are always challenging, throw in two children under four and without an experienced compassionate team you may have a disaster on your hands. As well as using your designs we don’t mind stepping in to assist in portions of a build as was the case here for Sharron and Matt. Our client’s scope with minimal budget was to extend the front, the side and the back whilst continuing to live in the property and we had to keep the place dust free. With clever management we got further into the project and in more detail then anticipated through communication and great teamwork. We now enjoy their Facebook posts of rooms being completed in their own time. Imagine what’s possible when you get creative.

The result is we have seen a home going from a temporary measure to being in trend and most importantly keeping up with the demands of a large family who’s still able to enjoy their neighbours and surrounding environment.

Architectural Additions

Blending the old with a new modern look

Our client’s dream of out door entertaining had always been difficult to achieve until our paths crossed. A few modifications to the original design and a new building approval Julie and Damons life was to change. Our scope was to get the building up to a stage and Damon will complete etc rest, pics are still to come. The structure of 120m2 was married into the existing, window changed to entry doors, 190mm recycled hardwood timber posts and cladded partitions ready for the kitchen. The result is we’ve sparked the fire for Julie and Damon to complete their dreams and its nice getting updated on their project we’ve started.

Architectural Granny Flat

Finally, the dream granny flat that has been on our client’s mind for years

Leanne came to us with excitement after learning that her parents would like to stay with her now requiring a granny flat. Her property was assessed and was suitable and so the planning phase began and in the end opted for a 6 star home with an gold rated “adaptable” home design. Throughout the build it was great that we really got to know both Mum & Dad, Leanne, her children, their partners and extended pet family. The design incorporated, double glazed windows, A.C, , roof, ceiling and wall insulation, flush floor surfaces, stone bench tops, glass splash backs, Built in robes, square set ceilings and double glazing windows all to provide the most comfortable home to live in. On the outside we tried to keep the theme as per the original dwelling late 70’s mid 80’s design features with durable cladding and steel roof to ensure this new dwelling’s not out of place. The result was and energy efficient home to which is a by product of a comfortable, healthy and well built home.

Architectural granny flats (this one is by interior addicts) or custom designed granny flats don’t have to be your standard granny flat. Let your imagine fly.
