A combination of design and ingenuity will see two separate condos units combined into one large 250 SQM unit that will have new walls, new plumbing (replacing the pre-existing steel pipe plumbing) with new PPR pipes throughout, and new bespoke furniture.
This bespoke two story house, having stared life as an empty plot of land, is being built from the ground up and encompasses 800 SQM. This house will incorporate a VRF AC system, extra thick walls, double glazed windows and doors, extra thick roof insulation, and heat reflective roof tiles along side numerous other innovations that will make this house highly efficient and economical.
Work started with 80 foundation piles that were pushed down to an average of 22 meters placed to support the house and all surrounding structures such as the lake side sala and both 3 port driveways. From there the ring beam and footings were constructed with a complicated inner steel structure guaranteeing that this house will stand firm. This ensures that complications common to many houses built without proper piles such as sinking and cracking are avoided.
The floors and columns are made of a steel structure and poured concrete, tested each time with a slump test to confirm the consistency of each truck load thus ensuring the strength of both the floors and columns. Block work soon followed with special ordered extra thick Q-con bricks.
The roof is made of a light weight steel truss structure that was assembled and lifted onsite into place, followed then by concrete composite roof tile that is designed to reflect heat.
All builtin furniture is designed to fit the exact specifications of the clients from media centers that are made so that line of site is at its optimal level, to the extra large kitchen island kitchen work tops, and the environmentally controlled walking closet.
This house will incorporate mass amount of natural stone cladding both on the exterior and interior giving a very unique feel to the house. Natural slate, stone jigsaw, and travertine stone are but a few examples.
This modern renovation was a complete start to finish turn key project that involved the complete removal of all condo’s interiors including floors, walls, ceilings, and electrical system. The entire condo was remade new with new tiles, new walls, new plumbing, and new ceilings.
The final condo has a semi smart home system incorporated allowing the client full control over the new lighting system from the kitchen, living room, and master bedroom allowing for various moods and tones ready at the touch of a button.
The furniture is wooden hand made and fitted on site with hidden feature LED lighting.
Total project time line: 3 Months not including weekends and public/government holidays.
This extension based on European design was built with double thick walls, double insulated roof and ceiling, and double glazed windows and door reducing sound and heat conduction by approximately 70% – 80%. The client also requested a small store room converted from the driveway with an epoxy flooring.
The new room was build as a new part of the original house, however, in order to not void any warranty that comes with the original house the extension could not be attached to the house’s foundations in any way. The extension therefore has its own separate foundation, piled to a depth of 21 meters or until the piling would no longer move. All piles for the extension are at a depth of 20 – 22 meters. This guarantees against sinking and movement.
All builtin furniture was a one off custom design, designed by the client and built based on their own very specific specifications for data and media storage and fitted onsite within a day as manufacturing was completed off site.
Total project time frame: 3 months not including public holidays and Sundays
