A HARMONIOUS TIMBER-CLAD HOME

COLLABORATION IS KEY

This highly collaborative project built by hedger Constructions was a rewarding challenge for all involved. Working on a severely sloping block that’s adjacent to a creek reserve, the building team had significant input during the design process to ensure stability in the design, integrity and budget of this bespoke home.

The home is strategically separated into three floors, which are designed as two stacked rectilinear volumes. the lower section takes advantage of sunlight through floor-to-ceiling windows that surround a spacious living area, while the lower floor flows on from an open-plan kitchen and extends to a sheltered alfresco, which creates the perfect entertainment space.

The house is internally and externally clad in timber, which seamlessly integrates the project with the surrounding bushland. the clarity of the shiplapped spotted gum and render creates a beautiful effect, while being cohesive with the geometric architecture of the home.

The white interior of the home contrasts beautifully with the exterior, while drawing light into each space. the kitchen cabinetry sits flush within the walls to encourage a spacious aesthetic.

The upper section of the home extends over the carport and entryway below, which amplifies the geometric architecture. the bedrooms have floor-to-ceiling windows that take advantage of the wonderful bushland views. Positioned in the entryway, the potted-gum staircase is a stunning functional addition to the house.

An expansive outdoor deck and pool area on the lower level flow cohesively from the interior of the home, with the timber flooring featured throughout. the frameless glass fencing surrounding the pool allows the soft blue hue of the water to be admired from within.

The home features 2340mm-high doors and a glass balustrade which create a seamless flow. the use of high-end joinery ensures the project is built to hedger Constructions’ standards of quality.

Hedger Constructions is fully accredited for first-rate housing energy requirements, which ensures clients’ projects incorporate energy-efficient designs. the company has installed double-glazed windows and ceiling, wall and floor insulation in this home to ensure it is sustainable.

Additional privacy screens were added in areas where the zone-ducted heating and cooling system operate to increase energy efficiency even further. a water tank is connected to the bathrooms, while overflow stormwater is redirected to the pool, making this an exemplary water-saving home.

Project 1

DESIGNS THAT EXCEED EXPECTATIONS

BUILD YOUR DREAM HOME

Specialising in custom-built homes in north-east Victoria, Hedger Constructions is known for its ability to present clients with a full design package, from initial planning through to the completion of their dream home. the company prides itself on its positive client relationships, attention to detail and ability to go the extra distance in providing the latest features and products.

For this Marysville project the clients wanted a statement home that would reflect a link to the town’s uniqueness within its geographical setting. the house has a dual purpose of being a retreat for the clients from their busy Melbourne life and to facilitate a bed and breakfast scenario for guests. the house is family-friendly, with a recreation area including fireman’s pole, climbing wall and in-ground trampoline. the multipurpose room can also be utilised as a yoga area for guests.

The home was also planned with sustainability and energy-efficiency in mind, with recycled materials subtly incorporated throughout. an 8.4 energy rating was achieved, which included double block reinforced concrete walls, extensive wall and ceiling insulation, complete sealing of gaps through the use of rock wood and the thermal qualities of the rooftop soil garden.the home, which recently won the MBaV north East Best sustainable Home for 2015, is innovative in its distinct design and the functional use of the block that maximised the setting and surrounds.

For this next project in thornton, Hedger Constructions was presented a challenge by the owners to construct a statement home that would suit their semi-retirement lifestyle. this included the running of a working farm, as well as continuing components of their existing business life, to create a home that complemented the natural surroundings.

Working closely with the owners, Hedger Constructions has completed a project that not only uses sustainable materials and boasts an excellent finish, but that also pays tribute to innovative design and use of fixtures.
the home has been designed to allow for clearly designated zones, from the office area with personalised layout, to the guest wing with bedrooms and an expansive bathroom. the wide hallway, with feature lighting, gallery and spotted gum cabinetry, leads visitors through to a spacious living, dining and kitchen area.

Prior to construction, a significant amount of time was spent with the owners in template design and pre-setting of fixtures. this allowed for a definitive sense of what the completed works would look like during construction and this meticulous attention to detail played a huge role in the outstanding quality of the finished project. this home also won the MBaV Best Custom Home in 2011.

Maximising the magnificent riverside setting, this expansive home epitomises modern living. Externally, the distinctive roofline links the rear of the building to the embankment and then draws the eye to the picturesque river views. the celestial and full-height windows allow ample light to penetrate the internal open-plan living areas and enhance the view from all rooms. a combination of beautiful ironbark and blackbutt timber, sandstone paving and render also tie the building to its surrounds. this provides a new experience around every corner, culminating in the magnificent alfresco entertaining area.

Internally the house is zoned to allow for guests to have access to the fully tiled and luxuriously fitted bathrooms, while the owner’s area includes an ensuite with freestanding bath and large flagstone-style tiling. the living room features an open fireplace and links with a magnificently appointed two-pack kitchen via a stone waterfall end island bar. the kitchen opens onto the outdoor area, making the most of the setting. Full-height internal doors and raked ceilings add light and space, and the scraped oak timber floor is a stunning addition. the zoned climate-controlled heating and cooling system means year-round comfort is assured. this is a beautifully finished home that combines luxury with functionality and reflects a design that will stand the test of time.

The clients of this next home were seeking a tree change, and wanted a quality home that incorporated modern design as well as blending in with the scenic outlook of the local town.

From the external approach, the home has a multi-level look and this is further accentuated by the layered roof lines. the use of render, Colorbond and cladding from the James Hardie lightweight range provides a striking contrast to the timbered hills as a backdrop. the stone and timber feature entrance provides a focal point and the black commercial windows finish off the contemporary exterior. an extensive ironbark deck with stainless balustrading and a timber handrail links the home to its surrounds.

Internally, the use of the large windows allows light to spill onto the magnificent ironbark floor in the living and kitchen areas. the modern kitchen houses a full gloss design, including a feature glass splashback and an island bench with stone waterfall ends. the design allows hosts to be fully involved in the entertaining of guests as it flows into the lounge and living areas. Grand-sized bedrooms are serviced by purpose-designed ensuites and bathrooms, featuring large tiles to create an open feel.
Given the location, fixtures and attention to finishing detail, this build has represented outstanding value for money.
