Master Builders of Victoria - 2012 Awards


Winner - Best Renovation/Extension Under $200,000 - South West Region

The extension and renovation to this contemporary home originally built by Greg Smith in the late 1990s resides in the leafy suburb of Mount Helen.  The clients wanted to improve their current home as their family needs were changing, with emphasise being on outdoor entertaining, with an open flow from indoor to the outdoors.

The extension included:

  • removal of an existing bay window

  • installation of an engineered steel beam, spanning 8m in length

  • extending the kitchen/dining rooms

  • installing a brand new kitchen

  • adding on a new theatre room

  • adding on an outdoor entertaining room, complete with outdoor kitchen

  • replacement of existing bathroom window






Finalist - Best Custom Home $500,000-$700,000 - South West Region

Based in Trentham, the owners had a challenging site, wanting to build in an existing blue stone quarry.  The back of the house is just metres away from the original quarry wall.

Extensive use of local stone, horizontal and vertical corrugated iron and glazing emphasize the dynamic shapes and lines, minimizing the impact on the vista and giving a distinctive ‘Modern Australian Edge’ to the external structure of the home.

All rooms enjoy stunning views of the tree tops and surrounding vista.

The main entry features a 8.0m high void.  Locally sourced timber to the stairs to the upstairs bedrooms and main bathroom. Downstairs has the open plan living areas and kitchen with polished concrete floors, study, master bedroom, ensuite and large country laundry.
