Construction of 2 identical executive holiday homes for a property developer. The houses are 270m2 each and include a one bedroom self-contained unit over the garage.
The brief was to build quality homes innovatively and cost efficiently. This involved importing materials from China, including bathrooms, flat pack kitchen, balustrades, glazing and louvers, which although more common practice now, was a novelty at the time. A Chinese interpreter was required to read the kitchen assembly instructions.
The houses were constructed for $1,500m2 in 2007, against local building contractor quotes of around $2,200m2 at the time.
