star attraction

For this family of four adults, the vision for their new home was that it had to be unique and stand out from others. Builder Starr Constructions has achieved this wish and more with a home that exudes a very unique architectural look. Built on a vacant block in Sydney’s Bella Vista, in the Hills District, it meets the clients’ brief for an abundance of windows that look out onto the backyard and pool and allow plenty of light to enter. “The owners’ inspiration came from looking though magazines which gave many ideas that we were able to build on over the years, as well as looking at a lot of architectural types of homes,” explain builders Nino Sanzari and Jon Vithoulka of Starr Constructions. “The design incorporates all of the owners’…

new beginnings

To build a new house of dreams for their clients, the directors of Starr Constructions, Jon Vithoulka and Nino Sanzari, needed more than luck on their side. The site wasn’t an easy space to work with as it sat on a sloped block with a cottage already occupying the space. Excessive excavation was needed to create a workable environment and only once the cottage was removed was the site ready for building. The client requested lots of space as well as accommodation for family and guests, so plans for this home included a large body of work. A grand footprint incorporated five bedrooms, three bathrooms, theatre room, dining room, family room, large garage with extra storage, lounge patio/barbecue area, and an in-ground pool that can be seen from the kitchen, dining…

excellence on every level

SFN Constructions was tasked with the dramatic transformation of an existing aged dwelling, set primarily over one level with a small room and bathroom downstairs. “This Drummoyne home was quite dilapidated and in poor repair,” explain Sydney builders Nando and Frank Sciacca of SFN Constructions. The homeowners, two professionals with two primary school-aged children, envisaged a new family home set over three levels to take advantage of its position. “Attention to detail to the finest point was very important to the owners,” say Nando and Frank. “They were very much guided by the impressions and professionalism of architecture practice Tzannes Associates and advice from us as builders to achieve the best result possible.” Tzannes Associates, together with the SFN Constructions team, transformed the home’s layout. The downstairs studio bedroom features an attached…

a pleasant view for all

This beautiful home was designed and built for the original owners as a dream home. It was for when they returned to Mount Martha to enjoy their retirement after living overseas for many years. Sadly, due to illness, this was never to be. “This was very sad for us all at Graeme Alexander Homes as the clients put so much of themselves into this project,” says Graeme Alexander, who built the home. “However, we are all but caretakers for beautiful homes and it was sold on to the current owners who immediately loved the pleasant view and the home’s design lines.” Originally, the current owners asked Graeme Alexander Homes to adjust the house to suit their needs. “I suggested they live with the home for a while as there was considerable thought…

relax in style

Gremmo Homes’ latest display house began with a simple concept. “Our objective was to create a contemporary design with a relaxed feel,” says Richard Gremmo. “There are finishes and inclusions that you wouldn’t usually find in a display home. We have more than 20 years of experience as a custom home builder, and we are well aware of the design concepts and inclusions that are both popular and also functional. We have worked hard to create an adaptable layout that can be easily adjusted to accommodate unique circumstances, such as narrow-width lots and sloping sites.” The home has a substantial street presence, accentuated by two advanced native Brachychiton ‘Bottle’ trees. Welcoming wide-formed stairs provide a subtle transition from the footpath to the entry of the home, framed by a double-storey glazed…
