A Home Renewal


A complete home renovation and extension in Gymea Bay, South Sydney.

For this home extension and renovation, the brief was to transform the existing home both inside and out to ultimately present as a new home. An additional requirement was to maximise the space and create a free flowing living environment for the family. Internally on the top level, the kitchen was in the middle of the house and very dark. There was no real front door, just a glass sliding door which gave the family no privacy. By re-designing this level, the family was able to completely transform their existing structure and create the wonderful new home below.

After careful consideration of the brief we knew that this home required a complete renovation. We stripped back all the combination of existing internal linings, re-ran all services in the house including electrical, plumbing and air conditioning, and added new insulation, plasterboard and all internal finishes including doors, new windows and external doors. This really gave the home an entirely new look and feel alongside the open plan kitchen and large back deck entertaining area.


When attempting to revitalise an existing property, choosing stand out materials is essential.

We added a new steel spine stair staircase with hardwood treads, recycled hardwood posts and beams for the entrance, glass balustrading to all deck/patio areas, barn doors to ensuite / WIR Pantry and three beautiful modern bathrooms.

  • Free flowing kitchen with butler’s pantry
  • Three chic bathrooms
  • Hardwood deck with grand stairs leading to large backyard
  • Bespoke curtains
  • Large front patio area leading to entrance door

“Matt & Matt, along with all their team were an absolute pleasure to work with during our renovation.

Their professionalism and experience speak volumes, never was anything ever an issue, and the communication throughout our build was just amazing. We had no issues with any sub-trades or suppliers, everything ran like clockwork which we put down to how organised they are as a company. We were lucky enough to have Grant running our build and he was an absolute legend to deal with every day! We would recommend MATTBUILD to anyone.”
