Welcome to our project showcase. We hope you enjoy viewing these renovations, just as much as we enjoyed creating them.

Scroll through this page to see a sample of the renovation projects we have completed, and if you have any questions please let us know. These projects range from simple kitchen and bathroom remodels, to intensive new builds and rejuvinated commercial spaces.

Blockhouse Bay Project

Our client had a dream to build a pool house over the existing outdoor pool and to connect this as an extension to the house.

The standout feature of this project’s design was in the way natural lighting was introduced through the use of skylights, a high roof apex and floor to ceiling windows.

The scope included a changeroom, kitchenette, and an entertainment area that created a spacious indoor and outdoor flow.

St Heliers Project

This full home renovation has completely transformed the living area and outdoor for our happy customers. Featuring beautiful hardwood floors, marble granite bench top, full home insulation for winter warmth and a modern spacious kitchen. This is definitely one our favourite recent projects.

Mt Eden Project

This contemporary design project is one of our latest completions. The client supplied our design team a sophisticated brief, and they took the recommendations to another level.

The initial job involved restoring the original brick dwelling, then adding a new lounge, kitchen, bedroom, en suite and outdoor area.

Some of the standout features include the external wooden cladding, an aesthetic touch which flows seamlessly through to the original floorboards and timber accents echoed throughout the home.

The lighter areas are offset by a masculine dark colour way featured in the exterior flashing, the kitchen and lounge cabinetry and aluminium joinery.

A stunning home both visually and in it’s day to day practicalities, we installed full insulation, double glazed glass and underfloor heating for comfort and to introduce long-term energy efficiencies.

Milford Project

The dream for our client was to create a spacious, modern outdoor entertainment that was safe and enjoyable to spend time in. So our designer worked with the client to come up with ideas which lead to a stellar outdoor barbeque and swimming area with a covered lounger patio featuring retractable louvers for shade in the summer.

However, this was a plaster house that was suffering rotting windows with some windows even duct taped together! On top of that, the roof wasn’t pitched well which can lead to major leaking, so pitching a brand new secure roof was critical.

But we didn’t stop there, this renovation included a full interior remodel, including new kitchen, lounge are and bathrooms. We also reapplied almost all of the exterior cladding, as per the clients instructions. As the roof was not in place structural steel beams were installed to ensure a solid framework for this home.

Our team, and most importantly our client, are all extremely happy with how this project turned out! 

Bay Project

This full home renovation has completely transformed the kitchen, living area and outdoor for our happy customers. Featuring new carpet and paint throughout, a modern spacious kitchen, and a fully renovated bathroom.

Campbells Bay Project

Taking an older home and bringing it into a modern look and feel always feels great to achieve. With this home we work with the client to create a functional yet visually stunning project that would allow their family to enjoy every day together.

Torbay Project

Our customer wanted to personalise her home with her creative tastes and Create was more than happy to bring her vision to life.

Home Extension

This project required an extension added to the home to allow the family more living space. The extension required that the cladding and tiling be uniform with the rest of the house, to make it look natural.

There was extensive interior work carried out to ensure all creature comforts and practicalities were addressed.

Retirement Bliss

Our clients were nearing retirement, and wanted to create a home that allowed them to ease into their new lifestyle. The key was to maximise the views of the estuary and allow the sun to pour in, while they read the paper and have a cuppa on the balcony.

We also extended the home in two directions to add a comfortable lounge and large sized kitchen for entertaining.

Villa Modification

It’s hard not to fall in love with this beautiful old villa, it’s charming original fittings and 1920’s lino bring an antique feeling to a highly sought after, modern area.

During our initial consultation, the client outlined that she didn’t want to lose that unique feeling, but simply wanted to modernise, create more light and introduce better indoor/outdoor flow to her home. 

We noticed the bathroom and living room was very dark, so we agreed that by adding new bi-folding doors we could bring extra light into the living room, and by adding an en suite we could make day-today life more convenient.

Initially our customer wanted to improve the livability of this villa, but as a bi-product we have increased the value of her house. 

Two Level Home Extension

These customers loved their location and community in Northcote, North Shore, but didn’t enjoy living in their space. Matt was very excited on demolition day seeing the old house pulled apart ready to be built back into something new.

Matt and his family enjoyed choosing all their interior fittings and are now loving their peaceful, renovated retreat, surrounded by native bush. Their new deck is a perfect entertaining space with indoor/outdoor flow from the kitchen and dining. They also now have comfortable and enjoyable spacious bedrooms upstairs. 

Architecturally Designed Build

This section was an extremely challenging build. With a large slope and geo tech issues the hard work started with getting resource consent. Once this had been granted Create Renovations got to work on building consent. Due to the geo tech issues engineers were involved and some creative thinking came into play.

Making the most of the site to create the most bang for your buck in terms of space Create Renovations architects came up with the ideal plan. The owners wanted to maximise space even within the difficulties of a steep site. We went with a mono pitch design which created beautiful high ceiling and doors. 


Create Renovations really stepped up to the mark building this challenging home in record time.

It is beautiful, warm, dry and interesting. I love living here. The quality of workmanship is extremely high.
I love that this isn’t just a standard house from a standard plan.

All the challenges meant we have ended up with a unique house perfect for our family. “

New Kitchen & Lounge Modernisation

This house is a nice family home that had a dated kitchen and tight spaces in and around the dining lounge, kitchen area. We removed walls and installed steel beams, opening up the space to make it flow better.

We also installed new joinery, with sliding doors creating a great indoor/outdoor flow. We then moved the kitchen to a more functional layout and installed the new kitchen. Iain and Charmaine and their family are now enjoying their new open plan living, kitchen and dining area. It has truly transformed the heart of the home.
