Voyager Drive, Gulf Harbour

Russell had sketched a model of the house he wanted to build in Gulf Harbour but felt it needed some professional polish. He also needed a reliable team to build the home he had invested so much time and money.

To some extent you would say this is a fairly standard build on a patch of land with a gradual gradient – 2-storey, 3 bedroom house, media room, double garage, open plan kitchen, living and dining opening out to a large deck with a beautiful view of Gulf Harbour – all was not as it seemed.

Owning a plot of land and wanting to build on it in Gulf Harbour came with various ‘precinct’ covenants – which, if not adhered to, could prove difficult in obtaining local Council approval. For example, the standalone house designed for Voyager Drive sat in an apartment zone and therefore needed to comply with specific style, colours and materials that fit seamlessly in the precinct area and surrounding environment.

BCG ARCHITECTURE, BCG CONSTRUCTION and Russell joined forces to devise workable solutions to the precise covenants presented – deciding on terracotta roof tiles, vinyl wall cladding and window frames to match or blend in with all the other homes in the area.

Other factors which Russell put a lot of emphasis on included soundproofing the media room – here we used a double frame wall and concrete mid-floor instead of the standard timber style and the kitchen, dining and living to be enhanced with the installation of a skillion roof at a noticeable pitch of 45 degrees.

Divine, open, spacious, light filled, blends seamlessly into precinct and all covenants met.

Whitney St, New Windsor

A testament to a quality built home is this beauty. An exquisitely positioned large character family home with exceptional street appeal and so much more to discover beyond the front door. This is a home of space, volume, sun and natural light that boasts 4 generous bedrooms each with its own ensuite and walk in wardrobe. The spacious open plan living, kitchen and dining area flow out to a large sun-drenched deck, as well as the fully fenced level section. Although this home is capacious, the family wanted a space that was large enough to suit every family need yet still feel intimate and connected.

Chatham Avenue, Mt Albert

Melding contemporary attachment with existing dwelling

BCG GROUP appointed to design and build a 2 level, 5 bedroom home of 162m2 that attached to the existing dwelling. Because the two homes were different in age and materials, we needed to make certain the combination of contemporary build materials were flawless in their unification to existing home.

The design and build of the ground floor allowed for an internal single garage, spacious kitchen, dining area and a large lounge room connecting to a 4x6m outlook space or deck, master bedroom with walk-in wardrobe and ensuite. Located on the upper floor is an additional 4 bedrooms, huge double sized tiled shower and a second lounge.

The wise material choices blend effortlessly throughout – bevel back weatherboard cladding, mono pitch roof over entry porch, double glazed windows, engineered flooring and carpet in all bedrooms for that extra underfoot warmth and comfort. The latest cabinetry, stone benchtop, tapware, appliances, downlights & stylish pendant lighting all lend to the unification. The designer chandelier brings an added extravagance.

Key to success for this project was about the unification of two individual buildings that perfectly complemented each other.

Domain Lane, Mangere Bridge

Homely & comfortable yet classically simple with a modern upgrade

This project was all about taking the bones of what already existed and give it a complete refresh. Starting with the exterior of the home we fitted all new weatherboard cladding guaranteed to stand the test of time, installed new windows and doors, guttering and downpipes, new front door, security & outdoor lighting – the whole façade of the home was completely reshaped. We knew the homeowners were partial to having an easy to manage outdoor space, so we built them a new retaining wall, landscaped the garden area with rocks and succulents as desired, and replaced the deck.

The interior crafted with all consideration given to homeowners needs for a simple, modern upgrade that still feels like our home on the inside. That’s exactly what we did. We remodeled the entry hallway, kitchen, living, bedrooms, bathrooms, painted the home in its entirety, laid new tiles and flooring, rewired the home and installed new electrical fittings throughout.

All in all this refreshed home now boasts an open plan living area that is generous with a nice outlook to the harbour, features a superb kitchen that flows out to the deck which is an absolute entertainers’ delight. 2 bedrooms and bathroom downstairs, on the upper level is the master bedroom & ensuite, a second lounge and a second bedroom.

Hazelmere Road, Sandringham

Out with the old, in with the new

Here once stood the original residential property built in the 1950’s, 837m2 land area, 539m2 floor area, single storey home with 5 bedrooms and ample parking for its time. In recognising the house had become a little shabby and outdated both on the outside and on the inside, homeowners decided it was the right time to bring about a new lease of life to their residential property.

Having such a large piece of land at their disposal, homeowners sought advice from architectural designers who formulated and proposed plans to simultaneously renovate the existing house and build a brand new home at the rear of property – thus maximising the land available. They also felt very strongly about the type of builder they wanted for their project, a team with a sound reputation, a team they could trust and have faith in, a team that focused on quality workmanship, a team that delivers. They elected BCG CONSTRUCTION to undertake both projects – full renovation and new home build.

Here now stands the fully renovated home at the fore, the new 2 storey home positioned at rear of property with its brick exterior, Colorsteel corrugated roofing, aluminium joinery, double glazed windows and double garage. Located on the ground floor are 3 bedrooms, lounge and sitting room, 2 bathrooms and laundry. Upstairs gives way to a generous master bedroom with ensuite, living, dining, kitchen sprawling out to an ample deck with a fantastic outlook.

Aramoana Avenue, Devonport

Challenge presented, redesign and build a new home on a smaller elevated site to fit effortlessly in Devonport, one of Auckland’s most historic suburbs. Bearing in mind, very passionate and well versed in building process – homeowners accomplished three new home builds and 6 or 7 renovations in as many years.

The design necessitated forethought in terms of space and functionality for the family, how best to maximise indoor and outdoor areas, and take advantage of the sun. Owners wanted a high quality build without over-extending capital which meant we needed to achieve the right proportions, and some indulgence allowed for the right materials.

Crafted with sensibility and functionality in mind, this two level home is set to impress the moment you step through the front door. The heart of the residence is filled with an abundance of north facing light and opens to a superb open plan kitchen, dining and living areas, with a natural flow to the deck and outdoor courtyard. At the opposite end of the is the study, media room and single garage. Upstairs are three spacious bedrooms plus a master bedroom with ensuite, each having a nice view of the city and harbour bridge. Flexibility in the design allowed family to build a little trap door between the children’s bedrooms – a fun play space and connectivity with each other.

The Devonport home is a true reflection of how you can utilise space on small size – shows how urban living can still facilitate family living.

“If we were to build again, would we use BCG – definitely. I think it’s that mix of managing our budgets and quality of build, and the relationship with everyone at BCG”.

One year on, homeowners have again, commission BCG GROUP to fulfil the design & build of another new home.
