About the Project
Originally a two story mid century red brick apartment block (an identical building still exists next door), the initial brief in 2002 was to convert the structure to a duplex creating two self contained luxury apartments. Later, in 2010, the client again engaged BlairBuild to convert the duplex to a single multi-level dwelling. The process required stripping out the entire interior of the building, bracing the external walls and excavating below the foundations to accommodate basement garaging. The renovation also included the installation of a residential lift, floor to ceiling windows, a butlers pantry and outdoor entertaining areas to capture harbour views.
“Matthew Blair has over the past 10 years undertaken a number of building jobs for me. These include construction of a house at Killcare, two townhouses in Erskenville, renovations and additions to a duplex at East Balmain, renovations and additions to houses at Birchgrove, Killcare and construction of a large new house at Birchgrove.” “Work has been done on a “cost plus basis and I have found this a satisfactory basis of working with Matt because of his basic honesty and integrity”
