Darren & Lloyd Teasdale of DTL Constructions are excited to present for the judges’ consideration “Augusta on Brookwater” - yet another example of master architectural design from Stuart Osman.

Located in the residential sporting community of Brookwater just 30 kms from Brisbane CBD, the residence borders the award-winning golf course designed by Greg Norman which is arguably one of the finest in Australia.

During construction of this stunning home, every detail has been carefully considered and executed to enhance the natural beauty of the idyllic bushland surroundings. The elevated parcel of land affords views of the immaculate undulating putting greens and natural water features immediately behind the residence.

All aspects of design and construction have been carefully considered in conjunction with the clients’ lifestyle to allow them the freedom to live and play in this much sought-after leisure destination.

Likewise, the same careful consideration has been given to the workmanship and finish of the home which includes clever, apt and elegant textiles, most of which were sourced and selected personally by the client to reflect her own individual contemporary style.

The inclusion of 4.5m ceilings make for a generous vertical space which provides an expansive feel, evoking feelings of freedom and independence.

Other Features of the home include:
* Angular feature roof sections
* Jarrah timber stair treads
* Ankle height lighting throughout
* Rice paper glass finish to entry door
* Shoji screens
* Custom buggy storage area.
DTL Constructions is proud to have been selected to undertake this innovative and highly individual project.

We can’t help but feel that we have succeeded in presenting our valued client with a polished finished product enabling them to find their “sweet spot” within this master-planned community.

Villa Florentine

Offering European stile and elegance, this expansive masterpiece nestled in Sanctuary Cove beautifully combines traditional and contemporary design. Winner of house of the year and best home over $2m and best bathroom at the Master Builders Gold Coast Awards. This incredible home is testament to the passion and commitment of brothers Darren and Lloyd Teasdale of DTL Constructions.

Built for international clients with property in Europe and the pacific, this unique and luxurious home, spanning 1540m2 offers a sophisticated European design which includes exquisite, light-filled spaces of marble, stone and glass.

Generous arched windows capture the simple, yet inspiring water features and sophisticated pool area surrounded by understated gardens and landscaping. “It means that you don’t have to call Europe home to enjoy a beautiful space” Darren Teasdale says.

The luxurious ensuite to the master bedroom is undoubtedly a highlight of the home with the centrepiece a unique wet edged tiled bath with marble finish.

Darren says that the depth of communication required between the himself and the clients, who was heavily involved in the build, was essential to the success of the project.

This was by far and away the biggest project DTL has undertaken in its 16 years in business.

A tour of this home is an unforgettable experience, notwithstanding the homes ultimate space, quality and luxury, it retains a bespoke warmth and a harmonious visual texture and is truly a testament to outstanding workmanship.

About the bathroom, this was Darren's first attempt at creating a wet edged tile bath which is the centrepiece.

This is where the water cascades over the edge of the bath and into the floor waste and from all reports it was the first the judges had seen also.

As you can imagine, the logistics were extremely challenging and (Darren might not say so, because he is too reserved) but he used all of his abilities of abstract reasoning, lateral thinking and creativity to complete it.
