Darlinghurst Project

We undertook a renovation and addition to this original 1920’s terrace located in Darlinghurst. The team at Benedict Design came up with a contemporary look and feel on the exterior complimenting this with a warm and aesthetically pleasing interior to suit the needs of this corporate couple.

Features of this beautiful home include custom made external shutters which allows natural sunlight to filter through the second story whilst providing privacy to surrounding neighbours along with the unique equitone fibre cement cladding. The shaker style kitchen joinery along with the herringbone flooring add character and warmth and the oversized bath in the master ensuite is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the expansive city skyline.

The character of the original building has also been maintained while including an appropriately scaled addition that is suited to flexible, modern city living.

“We engaged Customconstruction after a referral from a friend. We obtained quotes from a number of builders, but right from the start it just felt right with Sam and Customconstruction. Renovating a house is such a daunting prospect so it was important for us to find someone who we could trust with such a big investment of time, money and energy. Sam never once resorted to telling us what we wanted to hear, he clearly laid out the plan, the timeframe and explained what to expect from each stage.

I have said to many people that I feel we cheated the renovation process somewhat as we did not experience the drama that you so often hear about from people who have completed a renovation. When we faced bumps in the road, Sam would explain, provide his solution and then work with us to get to the best outcome, which was always his solution! The level of trust and confidence that we had in Sam and the team enabled us to not be in Sydney during the build, only returning to site once a month.

The Customconstruction staff were extremely professional and personable and all of the trades that were brought had worked with Sam for years, giving him, and us, the confidence that everything would get completed to the exceptionally high standard that Sam and the team demanded. 

When undertaking a large renovation, people might understand the macro elements, but it was Sam and his team’s attention to detail on the smaller and equally important aspects that really impressed us. They cared about all of the small details and were meticulous in ensuring that no shortcuts were taken.

We are absolutely thrilled with the home that Customconstruction built for us and we can’t thank them enough for making the process so smooth and enjoyable.”
