We are delighted to announce that Bayside Built won the HIA renovation/addition Project - $600,001 - $800,000 award. This award recognises excellence in residential construction and design in Australia.
Treehouse Haberfield has been designed by architect Richard Dinham and built by Doug Carey and the Bayside Built team in April 2020. This renovation is the epitome of flawless transition from heritage front to the modern and timeless extension at the back.
Timeless and modern rear extension featuring James Hardie cladding.
Every room in Bayside Built’s Treehouse leads you towards stunning elevated views over The Bay Run towards Le Montage and into the city. Steel framed sliding doors at the rear vanish into cavities when open and have only 25mm of visible frame when closed, with the sill recessed into the floor for a seamless finish and clean transition out onto the deck suspended high up over the rear yard.
Statement staircase & a raw colour and material mix at its best
With shadow lines, blind and lighting pelmets crucial to the design, four exposed Glu-Lam beams were pin-point installed to dictate the entire layout of the space. “We had to work these beams to every future detail imaginable while ensuring they supported the existing floor, new floor and the tiled roof above it all.” Doug Carey from Bayside Built.
The house features a distinct raw material palette with white and forest green-painted walls and polished concrete floors, with the staircase designed to provide a bold statement at the core of the building. The kitchen design features mirrored splashbacks to increase the welcoming and spacious character of the living area.

Along with the lower level, the renovation also features a generous master bedroom with walk-in robe and ensuite, as well as a further guest room - both opening up views over the treetops, creating a true treehouse atmosphere.
