“We thrive on the challenges and demands of building architecturally designed homes. They make us think; they give us the opportunity to show a high level of detailing.”
Craig Feutz of building company Feutz and Goldsmith certainly had all those opportunities and challenges on his hands with his company’s latest build – a four-bedroom Italianate house in Fendalton.
“The house was designed by Italian-born architect Alessandro Quadrelli and has a myriad of Italian features from its skinnier and longer-than-standard Roman-style bricks to its tiled bathrooms and use of marble and different types of timber,” Craig says.
“Inward-opening windows are recessed into the building. It’s definitely not a run of the mill house, but one that does give a nod to an older style of architecture. It was our job as the main contractors and project managers to bring this beautiful and complex concept to practical and workable life. The quality of finishing required was really next level, but that is what we specialise in and what gives us real satisfaction.”
Feutz and Goldsmith was not just responsible for building the house itself; a project taking about a year and a half.
The company also undertook all the earthworks associated with the build, as well as laying the driveway and doing all the landscaping works.
“Being on the corner of a busy road, access to the site was another issue we had to overcome and problem solve, but we are very proud of the finished home. It’s timeless and a true representation of the work we excel in.”
