modern marvel

The geometric facade generates instant street presence.The ideal home provides many things, the most common being space, comfort, a classic colour palette and high-quality finishes. In this case, a family of four traded their dated house for a sleek, parapet-look residence thanks to Starr Constructions.Opting to knock down their existing residence, the family thought it was best to completely redesign and rebuild a property they could live in for many years. The new house comprises three levels and contains plenty of room for the family. It features four bedrooms, a study, bathroom and ensuite, office, kitchen, rumpus/living room and an alfresco area. The spaces are connected by an on-trend colour palette of grey and white, with subtle hints of colour to add warmth and excitement. Stunning views of the ocean…

fresh appeal

The site was steep and very narrow, which made it difficult to work with.This block in South Coogee, overlooking the ocean in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, featured a very old brick house that no longer took advantage of its enviable location. The solution was to knock it down so that the new homeowners could build their dream home, which they can enjoy for many years.“The site was steep and very narrow, which made it difficult to work with, however due to our many years of building experience, this was not the first time that we had to work with a narrow site,” say Nino Sanzari and Jon Vithoulka of Starr Constructions, who were entrusted with the build.The clients, a family of two adults and two children, envisaged a very luxurious, modern…

classic feel

It’s difficult to believe this contemporary residence was once a dated holiday kit home.Although the existing Mornington Peninsula residence belonging to these homeowners was a dated holiday kit home, it offered an interesting two-storey New England-style front. The homeowners really loved the feel of this front extension and wanted to renovate the home and extend it to accommodate their needs.The owners wanted to level the walkthrough to the new works with an open, light and contemporary airy adaptation of the New England style. The task was to remove the elevated holiday kit home and create an extension, including a dining walk-through, into the great room, which features the family kitchen, scullery and highlight windows. This opens up to a north-facing swimming pool and glazed storeroom, which can be accessed from…
