Knock Down and Rebuild

Whether you're looking to knock down and rebuild your old home, or have purchased a property to redevelop, our custom home design process will ensure that the old house is replaced with a new, innovative home that is designed to match your individual requirements and taste.

The owners of this Wellington home wanted to keep their breath-taking panoramic views, but their original leaky house meant something had to be done. 

Their brief for David Reid Homes Wellington was to demolish the existing home, and replace it with a modern, bold design which maximised the stunning views, light and connection to the landscape.

Situated on a typical steep, weather-exposed Wellington site meant the rebuild was a challenge, but partnered with BBC Architects, David Reid Homes Wellington was able to create a cleverly designed multi-level home. It includes multiple living and entertaining options, complementing the uneven terrain and natural environment. 

Here are some of the advantages to doing a knock down and rebuild with David Reid Homes.


A knock down rebuild project can save you money 

With a knock down rebuild project you get a new, energy-efficient and innovative home for potentially less than the cost of an extensive renovation project. And because renovations can be risky, knock down rebuilds also have more predictable timelines.

Stay in the neighbourhood you love

Knockdown rebuild allows you to stay in your current location meaning minimal family disruptions, no need to change schools or re-establish your family in a new neighbourhood.

A new home exactly as you want it

Demolishing your old home and starting fresh means that you don’t have to work around existing structures – and you don’t have to compromise. With us you can dream, big or small, to achieve a home that’s truly personal and reflects your personality and your taste.
