For many people, building a new home is a chance to express their individuality. While some may have quite firm ideas about what they want, others may need direction.

Whether or not you have your own plans, design-and-build company Visual Statement are on hand to help. Committed to creating homes that are tailor-made to individual requirements, the company works closely with clients at each stage of the process, says director Mark McKay.

"We like clients to be involved as much as they want to be. Because we handle the entire job from concept to completion, we can outline factors such as costs and timeframes before the actual work starts, ensuring there are no hidden surprises."

Each Visual Statement home is covered by all the benefits of a Masterbuild Guarantee. This standard of workmanship is underlined by the use of high quality materials and finishes, says McKay.

The owners of this beachside property asked the team from Visual Statement to create a contemporary, low-maintenance house that would make reference to the site's original weatherboard holiday home. The result is a striking structure clad in a combination of cedar weatherboard and plaster brick finish. A large, angled atrium near the front of the entrance maximises street appeal, day and night, while expansive glazing on the other side of the house makes the most of the sea views.
