WILMAY AVE

The project

Two tired, old brick-and-tile flats with a large footprint but not a lot of land to play with. The decision? Build up!

The challenge

With Virginia not as mobile as she used to be, this South Auckland family decided to transform these units into two modern homes, adding a second storey across both to make the most of a great view and building an aesthetically pleasing outdoor area/deck. They were looking for:

  • Room for everyone in a large space
  • Privacy and separate areas
  • To future-proof their asset
  • The option to rent it out in the future.

We rebuilt unit one for Grandma, adding an extra bedroom and generous sized bathroom, wide doorways and a stair lift. Unit two went from a three bedroom, one bathroom home to a massive five bedroom, two bathroom, two living room creation, with room for everyone to enjoy for many years to come.

The end result

Working alongside the family from day one, we took them through the ideas stage, budgets, helped them project manage, deal with architects, right through to the end final build. The outcome? An awesome family home that makes the most of a tricky space. And they’re ‘stoked’. Watch this video for more from the family.
