State of The Art House Design and Construction at Beaumaris

With only six weeks to go to complete the construction of these townhouses at Olinda Avenue, Beaumaris, the owner is very excited.  Builders Blint Design + Construction are at fixing stage now with joinery going in and tiling begun.

olinda av beaumaris  These outstanding buildings have been designed to the owner’s requirements and specifications and the owner will be living in one townhouse, whilst selling the other.  The internal fit-out is the result of state of the art building design from Blint’s house design team , showing much creativity and imagination whilst the realisation of the House Designers’ vision has been brought to life by Blint’s experienced construction team.

Both townhouses enjoy enormous spaciousness with plenty of light pouring into the internal spaces , making them perfect homes for entertainment.  The Designers worked closely with the owner to bring the original vision to fruition and ensure all the owner’s needs were met.

Blint Design + Construction began with an initial meeting with their client to find out what he was looking for, what his vision was for the new townhouses and any particular specifications he wanted.  The House Designers then went to work to create an imaginative and cutting edge design, based on the client’s input and requirements.  Once the client had signed off on the design, after further consultation with the Blint House Designer, Blint Design + Construction took care of all lodgements of plans and followed through with the approval process.  Once building permits were granted a Construction Supervisor contacted the owner and liaised with him throughout the construction phase.  Two beautifully designed and built townhouses and one very happy owner is about to be realised.  Call (03) 9576 8686 to speak to a House Designer about your new townhouse, apartment or house.

An Environmentally Innovative House Renovation and Extension in Box Hill

MBC-Blint_3IrvingBoxHill021 copyA Californian bungalow in Box Hill has been transformed by Blint Design + Construction. The home owner needed to create more space to accommodate children growing older and a senior family member  moving into the family home. They wanted to adapt the home to meet the family’s changing needs, rather than sell up and move.

MBC-Blint_3IrvingBoxHill014a copyThe House 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 renovated and extended so it can adapt and grow with the family

MBC-Blint_3IrvingBoxHill012 copyThe interior has been renovated to create a large, spacious living area in a contemporary design with a media centre and a self contained apartment within the house. 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, double glazing and the house is zoned for maximum efficiency when heating or cooling. This innovative renovation features  a bladder system for water storage and grey water is used in the toilets. Similar renovations have been completed by Blint Design + Construction in Hawthorn, Burwood, Malvern, East Malvern and many Melbourne Bayside suburbs.

MBC-Blint_BoxHill_Kitchen_001aThe kitchen was totally modernised  and features concealed appliances.

MBC-Blint_3IrvingBoxHill008 copyOver 200m2 of extra living space was added upstairs and at ground level, with an extra 100m2 of outdoor living space. The back room that was created spans a large, open space, so the upper storey extension required an efficient structural design to ensure there is no spring in the floor. Another innovative feature of the renovation and extension is a skylight at the top of the stairwell that can be opened, creating a vacuum so hot air escapes and cool air circulates through the house.  Call Blint today to discuss your home renovation, extension or additon of a second storey on (03) 9576 8686.
