all walls were insulated then gyprocked again. This proved to be extremely costly and difficult, especially because the doors and windows had shadow moulds, not architraves. The air-conditioning had no ceiling space so each room had its own unit, which was all concealed. The stone cottage walls still remain and the new blended in.
“Akira Homes was stared 15 years ago by Anthony Kirillov and builds prestige homes in the Inner West, North Shore and Eastern Suburbs. The company also does large and prestigious extensions and additions and has previously won MBA awards for additions.”
The original 1850s stone cottage has been retained at the front and a modern two-level construction added at the rear, successfully melded to the old stone structure. The builder’s work has been precise. Huge sliding doors have been installed from the polished concrete floor to the level ceiling, with the head and sill concealed within the structure. Irregularities in the dimensions of the land have been successfully overcome. Akira Homes is a worthy winner.
