Camberwell

Custom Home Builders Camberwell

Our Camberwell project is a renovation and addition to a 1930’s double brick Art Deco home in Camberwell. Designed by architect Steffen Welsh, APC build were invited to tender at 70% documentation. This allowed input for value management and buildability from an early stage.

The scope of works for the existing structure included the full refurbishment of the existing front bedrooms and corridor and the addition of a new ensuite and walk in robe. The bulk of the works however are clearly centred around the rear addition. The complexity of building a raked and varying degree pitched roof structure with a slate roof tile finish that merges into the stone clad walls and expansive glazed windows and doors create the lasting impression of this architectural build.

The home is buoyant with examples of quality construction and build techniques. As you walk through the existing part of the home you can visibly see the craftsmanship in restoring the original features of the art deco home by custom matching the existing cornice, skirtings architraves and ceiling panels. The new and old is separated by a a custom full height 2m wide hidden cavity sliding door that builds the suspense as you traverse into the new. Show casing polished concrete floors, stone clad walls and large expansive glazed windows and doors. Yet there is no better example I can think of for quality in construction, than the build form and complexity of the raking roofs and slate works of the rear extension.

The homes are a striking visual representation of how the typical side by side town house can be transformed to create beautiful, functional spaces while capturing copious amounts of natural light. The home features highly detailed timber facade cladding works, highly finished joinery and a magnificent range natural products.

Trusting APC Build with the renovation and extension of our home was the best decision. Working with their team, we felt secure knowing they were pursuing the best outcome for us.  Like many heritage homes, numerous challenges arose during the renovation and APC Build were always able to find practical and economical solutions. With the project running through the COVID-19 restrictions, the APC Build team continued to provide quality workmanship, communication and a timely completion.
