2019 Supreme Renovation Winner at Master Builder's House of the Year

10 Aug 2019

A villa in Northcote Point, remodelled by Broswick Builders, has won the Supreme Renovation of the Year award in Auckland.  Judges said the full update of a white weatherboard villa was so well executed it was almost impossible to tell where the old house ended and the new began.

"The builder has painstakingly sourced matching products like the timber windows, doors, flooring and mouldings. Large timber sliding doors on to flush timber decking have been beautifully installed. This is a beautiful renovation and is more than worthy of the supreme renovation award."

    Habitat by Resene Magazine - The transformation of a Devonport Villa

    June 2016

    The original house was a villa in Devonport that was stuck in a time warp. It required a full renovation and a large extension was added to create more space.
    The clients wanted to create a light airy home with a beachside feeling, and with multi-functional spaces for family living. They wanted to create a centre around an open plan area that would allow for different activities to take place and yet be connected, for family and for friends. ....
