Construction of New Dual Occupancy Units in East Brighton

The latest Blint Design + Construction project is about to commence.  Situated on Landcox St East Brighton (no. 10) the property will see the construction of  Dual Occupancy (side by side) units over a 10-12 months period.

The two units will be double storey with a modern contemporary look and feel.  Each will provide 31 squares of living space with one having extra space for its double garage.  Both have double garages.

Each provides for modern open space living with kitchen, meal and living areas offering excellent comfort and space.  Timber flooring will feature throughout along with extensive modern lighting.  Upon completion each unit will be fully landscaped and finished externally.

Over the journey we will take you through each stage of construction to the final completed projects.  From a vacant block to luxury living, this is an exciting and interesting project.  Situated just up the road from Gardenvale Primary School and a quick walk from Landcox Park, this is an ideal place to live.  We have no doubt this will become another stunning Blint success.  Stay tuned for updates.

Originally a small maintenance building operation the business has steadily grown to become the iconic building ,design and construction company it is today. With a team of specialist Designers, Building Supervisors and Construction crews Blint Design and construction these days can offer anything from a simple extension through to a total Dual Occupancy rebuild.

The Blint group are innovative and creative yet they are expert in maintaining the integrity and charm that bayside residences are famous for.

Green Renovation In Bayside Area

A renovation completed by Blint Design + Construction in the Bayside area of Melbourne was featured in Home Design + Living September 2011 edition.  Of particular interest was the green aspect of the renovation. With a bigger focus on environmentally sustainable housing these days it is important to take the opportunity ‘get it right’ when renovating your existing home. The Designers at Blint came up with some very creative approaches to achieve a sustainable home.
The back room that was created as a part of the renovation spans a large, open space, so the upper storey required an efficient structural design to ensure there is no spring in the floor.
The original house was an older style residence and was quite dark and musty. It required more light and air ventilation, which was achieved by the addition of picture windows and large windows as well as skylights. At the top of the stairwell the skylight can be opened, creating a vacuum so hot air escapes and cool air circulates through the house.
With a strong  focus on environmental design, the Designer introduced many ‘green’ features.  As well as the opening skylight, passive solar energy has been incorporated into the design of the house, with the morning winter sun entering the house from the north east, and the use of large eaves to protect the house from the west.  All windows have double glazing and the house is zoned into separate areas that can be isolated, if required, for maximum efficiency when heating or cooling. There is a bladder system for water storage under the decks and grey water is used in the toilets.
Murobond paint was used – an environmentally friendly, water based paint with matt, earthy colours that have a lot of depth.  These colours blend well with brick work, particularly the older style bricks.  The Murobond paint, when applied to render looks authentic, with a seasoned appearance, making it highly suitable for renovation work.

Home Renovation in Melbourne Bayside Appears in Home Design+ Living

A renovation undertaken by Blint Design & Construction in the Melbourne Bayside area  was featured in Home Design + Living September 2011 edition. See the original Case Study below –

What are the core features of the home?
Three separate living areas, open plan living, huge entertaining area, media centre, outdoor entertaining areas, 3 car garage.

What makes the property stand out from the crowd?
The original Californian Bungalow façade was retained, but the interior has been renovated to create a large, spacious living area in a contemporary design with a media centre, modern kitchen with concealed appliances and a self contained apartment within the house.

What was the brief provided by the clients?
To create more space to accommodate children growing older and staying at home longer and a senior family member moving into the family home. The client wanted to adapt the home to meet the family’s changing needs, rather than sell up and move.

How did you achieve this?
The Designer took a lead from European Designers, who believe that you no longer designate rooms as a bedroom or living space, but build the space so it can be adapted to different needs as family circumstances change. The home was built so it can adapt and grow with the family. The Designer measured up the existing furniture to ensure the space designed would accommodate the family’s treasured possessions. The clients were very involved throughout the design process and their specific needs were met as a result of this interaction.

Who was the designer/builder?
Blint Design + Construction were the builders and designers for the renovation.  One of their very experienced Designers, Tim Roberts worked with the client to create a design that met the brief and delivered many environmental extras. Tim is a registered Draftsperson but spent many years as a Building Supervisor in Sydney; 95% of the works he completed there were high end renovations. Tim  decided to move into design to have more control over the end result, and ensure clients were satisfied. Blint Design + Construction are well regarded in the Bayside suburbs and surrounds for their excellent design, construction and project management.

How has the design utilized the space?
The front three rooms were retained and fully renovated, then over 200m2 of extra living space was added upstairs and at ground level, with an extra 100m2 of outdoor living space.
