Renfrew Road, Werri Beach Major Renovation
Job: Major Renovation
Year Completed: 2019
Architect/Designer: Kibbin Designs
Interior Designer: Oser
Photographer: Red Berry Photography
Kibbin Design was engaged to turn this little weekender into a modern, warm, flowing build of 400 sqm in size.
The design brief for the facade was to use recycled bricks (laid with lots of texture), timber clad elements & garage door, topped off with the sophisticated cladding of James Hardies for upper floor & roofing surrounds.
A major element was low-pitched roofs hidden behind small parapets and huge eave overhangs to reduce summer heat.
Oser Interior Design was another major factor bringing joinery & colour pallet of the home to life.
Using the lay of the land and wanting the pool level to meet the living room has meant the home has been designed over 3 levels:
- As you enter the home there is a large foyer with a 6m high void letting northern warmth & light into the home in winter. this level also includes 2 bedrooms, next to main bath, laundry & 3 car garage
- The main level has extra guest bedroom, study / sitting area, rumpus room, WC & 10x7m dining/kitchen area. Stepping down 2 steps is the sunken formal lounge with 3m high glass doors and windows facing the wetlands. 13m of the main living area is linked with 3 full height doors to the deck, gardens & lap pool
- Upstairs has a sitting area area, master bedroom, walk-in wardrobe & a large ensuite.
Inside features range from polished concrete floors, to solid American oak floors & stairs, to giant tiles in bathroom, 4.5m high ceilings, set door jambs & custom joinery.
The hub of the home is no doubt the kitchen that has a 3x1.2m island bench.
The list is endless on this custom build that is a stand out in the street.
Our team of local experience trades together with Quine Building’s team brought this spectacular build to life.
With this project we have been named as a Finalist for the 2020 HIA CSR NSW Housing and Kitchen & Bathroom Awards.

" From our first meeting with Stuart we felt so comfortable and knew with his 20 years experience in the industry, his team would build our dream home. His attention to detail was first class and all trades involved were second to none. My wife and I would recommend Quine Building as a first class builder."

Barrack Point Custom Built Home – Tracy & Richard O’Brien
"Thank you so much for our stunning new home. Everyone has heard horror stories about builders and building a new house, but we find it hard to imagine a smoother or more stress-free building experience. We appreciate how approachable and consultative you have been throughout the design and build process, and your communication skills have kept us informed throughout and as a result we felt very comfortable with the progress of our home. We loved our regular on-site progress meetings and getting to know Michael and the rest of the team.
The commitment of all the Quine team was obvious and it was a pleasure to see the real pride everyone took in their work. The combination of pride in workmanship and your team’s high levels of skill have created a master-built home we are sure we will enjoy for many years to come. The standard of construction and finish is outstanding and never fails to attract comment from our many guests and is a constant source of delight for us."
