Architectural Update & Extension to a Traditional Villa.

Central Auckland

Our clients loved many character aspects of their traditional villa, what they didn't love was the lack of light, warmth, and connection to their back garden.  

By working as a team with BDG architects we've added a beautiful modern 2-storey extension which is now the heart of the home: Kitchen, lounge & dining are open and light-filled with an easy connection to their entertainer's patio. 

Moving the laundry to the inside of the home and giving them a much-needed 2nd bathroom has been a total game-changer for Brent and Mary-Anne and their teenage daughters.

The new spaces allow the family to spend time together and also to retreat and have pockets of individual spaces.  Working particularly well in a time when home offices are now the new 'norm'.  Brent and Mary-Anne undertook their large-scale renovation right as COVID 19 hit unexpectedly, we successfully steered them through some very turbulent times and the results speak for themselves.

"We are really looking forward to Summer, to using the entire house.  Opening up those doors and utilizing that indoor-outdoor flow. All of the new parts of the house have been incredible, it’s just so much easier living in the house in this new space, it’s hard to remember what it was like before" - Mary-Anne, homeowner. 

"All the little bits and pieces and quality finish we got, in the end, were really good.  We would definitely recommend Alpha 1, a great crew of guys and lead very well"- Brent, the homeowner.

 Check it out and see what they think of their new dream home.

We worked with BDG Architects on this fantastic project, here's how Paul Somerford from BDG found working alongside Alpha 1 to bring our clients dream home to life.

"Alpha 1 Builders have excellent communication, they are pleasant & professional.

Paul is very proactive, always thinking ahead to ensure details are resolved and holdups are avoided. Any detail that needs to be adjusted is worked through with the best options given.

The level of finish on the project was excellent. Working with Paul & his crew was a pleasure, I look forward to working with him again".
