Luxury villa renovations for the discerning homeowner
Our craftsmen builders are experienced in working with character homes, so we’re aware of the design and structural challenges that can arise with old buildings and know how to tackle them.
We’ll work with precision and care, taking into account the nostalgic architecture that makes villas special, such as detailed porches and romantic verandas, and use traditional building methods as required.
When you’re searching for a team of builders to renovate your villa, you want to know they are an established and trustworthy company within the construction industry. Artbuild has so you can feel assured you will be choosing a suitable building contractor to refurbish your beautiful villa.
Why renovate your villa?
Do you need more space for entertaining guests?
Is your recently purchased villa in need of an upgrade?
Have you always fancied a separate kitchen and diner?
Are you dreaming of relaxing in a glamorous bathroom?
Would you like a walk-in wardrobe or dressing room?
Is your garage in need of well-organised storage?
Would you love to treat yourself to a luxury swimming pool?
Is your outdoor space in need of a stylish makeover?
Bespoke kitchens for a sumptous villa lifestyle
Entertain your guests while you cook; we can build bespoke breakfast bars, exquisite marble and granite kitchen islands, and banquette seating areas with designer upholstery. For a truly aspirational villa kitchen worthy of any stylish dinner party or cocktail soiree, why not incorporate luxurious extras like multiple ovens, a range cooker, thermostatically-controlled wine fridges or a walk-in pantry?
Pool construction and renovation
As the owner of a stunning New Zealand villa, you will no doubt be used to spending time outdoors – but are you maximising your space?
Adding a pool: a sound investment
Collaborating with our surveyors, engineers and helping you obtain the relevant building and resource consent, Artbuild can design and specify all the materials, pumps and filtration for your new pool installation. We know it’s a headache of a job to organise yourself, and quite frankly, we don’t blame you for wanting to hire a competent pool construction company.
Pool refurbishment costs
Is your current pool suffering from neglect, broken tiles or damaged coping stones? There are such a vast range of technologies we can now use to resurface your pool, so it may cost less than you think.
High-end architectural villa design and construction
The Artbuild team boasts a wide range of clients in the affluent areas of Auckland, including Parnell and Glendowie. With so many building contractors to choose from, we’re proud and delighted they chose us to work on their beloved home. Auckland architecture – in our opinion – can be truly breathtaking so we enjoy playing an important role in its revival and renovation. Our trusted surveyors and architects can design structural plans and detailed CAD drawings to map out your vision, then the Artbuild team of master craftsmen and qualified builders are skilled at making it happen.
Picture this – the clearest starry night, ambient lighting sweeps across the terrace, music fills the air – and your cherished family and friends gather to feast on your delicious homecooked buffet. Blissful. Whether you prefer a high-spec outdoor kitchen, a simple brick barbecue or a casual chiminea to toast some marshmallows, we can build it all.
Our team can also undertake any hard landscaping and groundwork jobs – building paths, laying paving, designing stepped areas and different levels with cast stone balustrades. You might wish to consider an ornate limestone archway, Roman-style pillars or architectural motifs and garden sculptures to add a bit of elegance and grandeur.
Restoration of heritage villas
Our restoration work will inject your property with a new lease of life no matter how run down it currently is. Our founder and lead builder Zed has decades of experience restoring beautiful UNESCO-protected Venetian and Palladian villas in Italy, so you can rest assured that your beloved home is in safe hands.
Restoring heritage woodwork
Our qualified carpenters and tradesmen have lovingly restored all types of woodwork, from glorious mahogany staircases to beautiful sash windows; traditional oak-beamed ceilings to intricate wooden cornices and mouldings. We’re also experts in hardwood flooring, engineered flooring and laminated flooring.
Whether your solid hardwood kitchen needs a facelift or you have wooden windows which are flaky, rotten and past their best, we use traditional techniques and quality products to ensure a durable finish.
Less of the mess
Our dustless sanding technology is ideal for restoring large areas of herringbone or parquet flooring; you won’t be left with any mess so you can continue to live on-site while the magic happens.
We kick things off with a free phone consultation to hear about your renovation goals followed by a meeting with Founder & Lead Home Builder, Zed, to discuss the project in further detail and inspect the property. The concept design will be carried out by an architect – we can recommend one of our trusted experts if you don’t have one assigned – and we’ll draft an initial budget proposal. When both concept drawings and cost estimates are signed off, the architect will create working drawings. This is followed by a detailed quote and tailored master builder contract.
BUILD & MANAGE
Now the contracts are signed, financing is secured and schedules are confirmed, the construction work can begin! We will manage the entire renovation project through to completion, keeping you up to date with weekly on-site progress meetings where we can discuss any challenges or adjustments which may need to be made. Our expert team will also conduct regular quality control checks to ensure high standards.
HANDOVER & ENJOY
Once the renovation is complete, we have the property professionally cleaned so that it’s ready for you to settle into. We’ll have a handover meeting to discuss all of the functionality – from heating controls to lighting operation – to make sure that you feel comfortable and confident. You’ll also receive a file with any relevant documents and information regarding your project such as instruction manuals, warranties and reference photos for plumbing etc. Then all that’s left is for us to do is hand over the keys so that you can enjoy your new home!
Hear what some of our past clients have to say about working with Artbuild...
Adam and Philip hired us to fully renovate a 'do-up' house they bought to resell, whereby the downstairs was not being used to its full potential. We carried out a full house renovation, added an ensuite bathroom, walk-in wardrobe, plus added a ranchslider for indoor-outdoor flow. "Looking back, it was a very easy and smooth process, it was easy to deal with the team and during the construction process, there was never a big mess. The final product I was really impressed by."
Luxury Villa Renovation in Parnell
Felicity Morgan Rhind has used Artbuild to renovate her beautiful villa in Parnell, Central Auckland. Renovations included building walls, fitting doors, painting, plastering, general maintenance and removing the decking when her cat got stuck! "When Zed was working here you felt he was just working here, he wasn’t trying to do million other things. His focus was on us and getting our job done swiftly."
Renovation of damp house in Avondale
Greg and Karina Smith from Avondale contracted Artbuild to fully renovate an old, damp and cold house that had been neglected for 50 years. Building work included structural changes throughout the property. We installed quality insulation, which brought an end to their daughter's asthma symptoms and improved the family's quality of living. "We’ve got a brand new house, really, in our renovation. Is not just the part of the house. It’s just so lovely and warm and easy to live in."
Full House Renovation in Glendowie
Anthony and Moira Flannery from Glendowie were introduced to Artbuild by a friend. We renovated the upper floor and downstairs bathroom. We created feature walls with lighting for artwork display, an office where structural walls were removed, undertook a full bathroom renovation and built two new walk-in wardrobes. "The entire building process was very good and very smooth. I’m an architect, so I do know how things can go wrong, but on this one, as good as you could hope for a project to go."
