Located in the Northern Beaches Suburb of Palm Beach this stunning home was completed transformed with every surfaced rebuilt from the inside out. This was predominately a dual residency timber framed and clad building however I brief including the complete removal of the timber framed structure and to replace this with concrete slabs. This was extremely challenging when we had to support the existing building and rebuild the new concrete forms with the existing structure. The result of this is a much more robust structure and given this was located on the beach in Pittwater the be building will be much more suited to this coastal environment.

No element of this house was left unconsidered with the best of finishes, fixture and fittings being used throughout. With Panoramah Windows imported from Portugal to the external Render imported from Italy, the level of finish in the house was second to none.

Teak decking was featured throughout this house with decks and the perimeter of the zero edge swimming pool lined with teak. The teak decking that lines the entry to the house was bordered by Corten Steel. Corten steel was used to frame the landscaping throughout creating a beautiful contract to the lush gardens and landscaping throughout.

Project Testimonial

During the course of the build we encountered many complications which the BAU Group handled and resolved in a very professional and discreet way; not least of all was keeping the neighbours happy throughout such a long and disruptive build/renovation.

Working with David Schubert and Mita Kovacevich helped take the sting out of the building process. On numerous occasions they were able to supply the best materials/products at the most competitive prices. They kept me updated with all aspects of the build and if there were any issues we would discuss them and they would deal with them immediately.

Their overall attention to detail has resulted in us achieving a beautiful family home of the highest standard.


"There are not enough words to express our gratitude to you and your Team for making our dream home a reality. The Team at Bau are a group of gentlemen who are always delightful to deal with.

Your meticulous attention to detail, combined with your “nothing is too much trouble” attitude made the whole build process completely seamless.

The quality of the work you did exceeded all our expectations.

Most of all, we have no idea how you managed to meet practically every deadline along the way – despite COVID delays and seemingly endless torrential rain, you got us into our house on time and we couldn’t be happier.”

—Sharôn & Mikey—

"Needless to say this project enjoys the best quality of building work on any project we have ever completed. We had undertaken 5 new builds and 4 extensive renovations before embarking on the Paddington project and this has been the smoothest. This is a credit to the builder Bau Group and C+M Studio.”

—Ian & Anne Burns—

"Bau Group has worked with us as a builder and consultant on several residential projects. All work has been carried out in a professional and timely manner. David has an extensive knowledge of construction and a very high attention to detail. He has displayed excellent project management and contract administration skills throughout this challenging build. These include the management of trades, reviewing construction documents and liaising with Architects, Engineers and Clients."

—Anthony Dukes, Dukes Workshop—

"We so welcome your call or a visit to our home if you would like to discuss working with Mita and David. There are so many companies out there promising the world, believe me don’t look any further you have found the best. We are so fussy and particular it was lovely work with such similar minded builders they would not settle for second best. On time, within budget and most of all with a smile nothing was ever a problem such a nice change."

—Amber Elsworth—

"Both Mita and Dave are extremely conscientious and proud of their product. They are also very honest and trustworthy, so we would happily recommend them to you."

—Susan & Noel Nicholson—

"They have a good team of people who each bring their own specialist experience in a professional manner but who can also all pitch in together when things need to get done. They are very flexible to suit your needs and listen to your requests. Absolutely nothing is too hard or too much trouble ever. They have great ideas and solutions to the inevitable problems that happen along the way. But mostly it is their polite and happy team that is a delight to have in your home and it makes the whole thing less stressful. We would both highly recommend them and certainly will use them again for our next job."

—Ingrid & Geoff Plummer—

"The team at BAU's attention to detail, quality of craftsmanship, project management, communication and problem solving skills were outstanding. We had a strong vision for the project and they delivered a superb quality result on our dream home, that far surpassed our expectations!"

—Kylie & Peter Green—

"BAU have exceeded our expectations in their attention to detail during the build. Every effort has repeatedly been made by them (and others) to work with millimetre tolerances and alignments so crucial to our overall design. In doing so they have had the greatest respect for our aesthetic and the ambition in our design. We could not be happier with the result in what we believe is a triumph in its simplicity""
