New Home Build – Design & Construct Project – Guanaba – Gold Coast QLD
Following an arduous and unpleasant experience with a previous builder, our Clients found Romark. They were delighted by our honest approach, attention to detail and eye on the budget. Their previous builder had expended 12 months designing them a home which in the end was nothing like what they were after and was out of their budget. They arrived very despondently after wasting a considerable amount of money and time. So we listened to their requirements, designed them what they wanted within budget and had them in their new home before Christmas. The design process took six weeks, and we were turning soil.
Our clients came from the land as horticulturists and wanted a home to raise their family and relocate their business. We provided a complete turn-key service, every aspect of building design, interior design, structural engineering, electrical, mechanical, landscaping and pool, construction and handover. The result is a beautifully appointed family residence surrounded by a breathtaking landscape. ‘Contemporary Country’ evokes a sense of escape and is the ultimate residence to raise a family in a contemporary style situated in the lush hinterland. The family have since expanded tremendously. We have been delighted to work with them to build the administration building for their family business.
We were happy with the architect, the design was exactly what we were after and the price was right. I think that is what we were looking for all the way through – was a good quality, luxury home. As a testament to your service and your building, you came back and did our administration building. Ease, stress free, easy to work with, easy to communicate with. Anyone that wants to build, build with Romark.
Home Renovation Build – Design & Construction Project – Sanctuary Cove – Gold Coast QLD
Located within a residential resort, this home features extensive use of glass with single glass panels evident as you cast your view to the picture-perfect River beyond. The task was tedious in having the ceiling linings run through and ‘level’ with the glass units. The Client’s brief was to minimise the evidence of glazing frames whilst priding the illusion of extra high ceilings. This also enhances the view of the everpresent boats and flotilla on the Coomera River.
Pokolbin was designed and built with the Owners’ input on every facet, including interior design. All Sanitaryware and Tapware is fully imported including the stand-alone baths. The design features concrete stone Kitchen benchtops, ‘high-end’ joinery, Italian imported porcelain tiles, timber flooring, imported feature porcelain sheeted walls, strategically placed and generous sized niches, imported designer lighting and ventilated ‘raked plaster shaft’ Velux skylights further enhance this modern theme. The B.B.Q. Bench Top features the newest product in engineered stone, now weather proof.
Pokolbin was created for the entertainer in us. Special consideration has been given to lighting design and mood lighting to transition from breath-taking sunsets to the darkness of night. The spacious kitchen melds seamlessly with the dining.
The entertainment extends to a purpose-built home cinema featuring hifidelity audio/video. This room can also be utilised as a spare bedroom as the adjoining Powderoom contains a shower. The ‘Control 4’ home automation system provides convenient functionality at a touch, onsite and/or remotely. The neutral colour palette of soft greys and white throughout the home, add to the relaxed, modern and minimalistic atmosphere, enhanced by modern furnishings with subtle contrasting tones. Notice the porcelain wall sheets used in the shower recess to negate any tiles on that subject wall. The same applies as a feature wall as a back-drop behind the bath. From the ruins of a near dilapidated riverside villa emerged ‘Pokolbin’; a warm and welcoming home for family and friends to share special times together.
New Home Build – Design & Construction Project – Benowa – Gold Coast QLD
Showcased by an intriguing mix of clean architectural lines, expansive open-planned living, pool and ocean views, this residence presents as the perfect luxury oasis. Our Clients were relocating from Adelaide and contacted Romark to design and build their home. There were special requirements as they are a Chinese family, requiring a home large enough to accommodate two families. Exceptional in position and lifestyle attributes, this generous family home became the residential base to our clients – the grandparents – and their son, his wife and two children.
Our clients required a fully enclosed kitchen to contain the Chinese cooking smells within the kitchen area. We used a glass barrier to separate the kitchen. This zoning allows the cook to remain connected to the family yet contain the cooking aroma to the single area. The parents could not speak much English, so their son performed all the correspondence throughout the project. The resulting home allows the family to enjoy sun-drenched vistas with ample space to enjoy their time together as one large family unit. Since the build, we have become very good friends, and our Client often performs translation for other Clients where necessary.
The quality of the work is topnotch, but most importantly, their honesty won my trust and has built a great relationship between us. For anyone is looking for that best builder for your perfect home, you will not be disappointed with Romark Design Constructions, I would have no hesitation to recommend them to anyone.
New Home Build – Custom Building Design & Build Project – Gracemere, Hope Island – Gold Coast QLD
This bespoke designed home is full of style, features and extras, situated on the prestigious Hope Island waterfront. Our clients came to us to build their holiday home here in Australia. They are professional people who live in New Zealand, visiting our sunshine state for their family vacations. Absolutely nothing has been left to chance in this build. Proudly overlooking the beautiful waters, this enviable home offers a lifestyle few are lucky enough to enjoy.
Modern contemporary Tuscany heavily influenced the design. From the impressive front entrance with its large porte-cochere boasting a beautiful raked timber-lined ceiling, to the ground entranceway featuring Nero Absoluto travertine inserts, nothing but grandeur awaits. The homeowners were looking for that feeling of grandeur from the entranceway to the five-car accommodation, bespoke designer kitchen and opulent master suites. This home welcomes the family with impressive well thought out living spaces making the most of the fantastic views with the open plan design. Equipped with a designer kitchen, the homeowners are inspired to create and serve friends and family in this beautiful home. The relaxing alfresco setting overlooks the glistening lap pool, ingeniously placed to the side of the residence to utilise every inch of the property.
Travertine marble imported from Spain was used throughout the home. A local sculpture hand-carved on-site the curved timber stair handrail, which is a beautiful feature of the home. We incorporated wall hung vanity basins and W.C. Suites for the bathrooms, which have been supported by mirrored walls behind; no small feat, and is unique to this property. The joinery was also bespoke for the home, setting the benchmark for the quality of the fixtures and making the home feel warm while experiencing the extremely high ceilings and open spaces.
Mark, we have just walked into our new home for the first time since handover. Thanks so much for putting all the lights on for us, it was so thoughtful of you and so welcoming after our late arrival from New Zealand. Our apologies for the late message but we could not wait until the morning to express our gratitude. Thank you very much for everything and for delivering a home of exceptional quality which has absolutely taken our breath away. We are overwhelmed by the end result of your hard work.
New Home Build – Custom Design & Build Project – Gracemere, Hope Island – Gold Coast QLD
Relocating from Malaysia, our clients approached us to build their home on the Hope Island waterfront. The home has been designed specifically as per their instructions. Heavily influenced by Asia, you will see from the photos that the timber front door has been specifically created for the space.
The front entrance opens to a feeling of complete serenity. Like an oasis, you are welcomed by an exquisite waterfall that falls from the book-leaf cladded stone wall. Sandstone stepping stones are strategically placed, surrounded by pebbles and water to provide a very tranquil environment. This area separates the study, media room and guest wing from the rest of the home. The home has been purpose-built for our clients and their young daughter. Upstairs has been designed purely as a large Master Bedroom with a study nook. The daughter’s bedroom, also upstairs, contains a study nook.
The downstairs area has been designed for entertaining. The custom kitchen boasts stone benches, a breakfast bench, and the kitchen’s convenient location opens directly onto the BBQ area. An exquisitely designed alfresco patio with timber-lined ceilings links directly to the pool area. This space provides the opportunity for the family to enjoy many great Australian BBQ’s and a fantastic lifestyle on the waterfront.
Mark you have and remain a very considerate person to work with.
New Home Build – Small Lot Building Design & Build Project – Mermaid Beach – Gold Coast QLD
Our client contacted us from Germany wanting a design and construct package from Romark. He had purchased a block of land in Mermaid Beach, perfectly positioned to capture the surf views and ocean breezes.
We had this unique home designed to encompass entertaining on the rooftop. Complete with its own lift to the third level and rooftop pool, the masterfully designed residence takes advantage of everything the site has to offer. Being able to sit in the pool and view the surf conditions was an imperative focus of the design brief. The rooftop pool also had one distinctive element explicitly designed for this project. It had the largest residential pool window ever inserted into a residential construction. The journey to have this pool window placed on the rooftop was captured by the local Gold Coast News.
Being a single man, he loved to entertain. The ground level required an area for the pool table, connecting directly to the immaculately appointed kitchen and living room. The bedrooms were located on the second level, making them very private for any visiting guests.
Mark you have my approval to enter my home into the Master Builders Awards, my home will definitely be a Winner, I’m so proud of it, thank you.
It not only was a Regional Winner but also a State winner!
New Home Build – Construction Project – Sovereign Islands – Gold Coast QLD
After a couple of years of searching for a builder competent enough to complete this difficult build, our clients came to us disappointed with the builders they had spoken with. Once they met us, they knew we were the right builder for them. The design was not your usual straight up and down build. It was curves where ever you looked.
This build required an experienced builder. The stunning design emphasises grand proportions and intricate nautical-inspired custom details that are truly world-class. We feel this is why it took our clients so long to find someone competent to build the structure.
The design highlights nautical style portholes reflected right through the interiors, including the ensuite, exquisite travertine tiling, warm timber accents and lines to accentuate the curves. Backdropped by the waterfront, the stunning travertine has been paired with timber accents throughout the home, reflecting on the white interiors to provide a sand and water feel. Fitting for a project of this calibre, a local boatbuilder constructed the sweeping staircase, which will live forever. The photos speak for themselves. This truly is an amazing home.
Thankyou for a very nice home, the swiftness of my home being completed was very much appreciated. The architectural design was beyond the scope of your competitors so I thankyou for delivering my dream home with finishes that were to the highest of standards.
New Home Build – Land Purchase, Design & Construction Project – Broadbeach Waters – Gold Coast QLD
Our clients came to us asking for assistance in purchasing a block of land so they could relocate from Melbourne. We listened intently to their needs and assisted in the purchase process, ensuring the block of land would be suitable for their new dream home. Coming from apartment living most of their lives, designing a standalone home was a real change of pace. They were looking for the convenience of apartment living. They wanted a home that could be as maintenance-free as possible, with the luxury inclusions of a bespoke cosmopolitan apartment. We are proud to have achieved their design brief, and they couldn’t be happier.
The land contained an old home, which we had to remove prior to turning soil. We built the pool first as it is situated right on the waterfront, then we worked our way back to the roadside. Artificial grass and vertical gardens are featured in the home, which reminds them of their apartment lifestyle. The water frontage and spacious formal and informal open-plan living suit the owner’s style and provide a sense of secluded privacy in a cosmopolitan way.
Thankyou both very much for building our beautiful home, we are thrilled with the results. Throughout the build your professionalism, advice, friendship and humor has been an enormous part of our experience, and we have thoroughly enjoyed every minute.

Mark, we are so pleased with your finished works, it was exactly what we were after and its amazing that Today Tonight want to do a spiel on the glass floor and office. We are very happy to have them do the filming including an interview with yourself in regards to your work and our home. Thank you again for completing such a difficult task.
New Home Build – Custom Design & Construction Project – Sorrento – Gold Coast QLD
Our clients came to us to have this home rebuilt from scratch. They had owned the land for quite some time and loved the location, neighbourhood and river setting. We literally removed every part of the home and only left a few perimeter walls standing to keep the offsets. Completely rebuilt, this grand residence, with the grounds landscaped into a private oasis of specimen trees with stepping stones leading to the river’s edge commands a great deal of respect. This home renovation project was extremely labour intensive, and we left nothing to chance. Each detail was finessed to ensure the finished product was a unique statement designed just for our clients. You will never see this home anywhere else. From galvanised corrugated iron features, concrete render, timber slated walls and dividers, bamboo flooring, raked ceilings, this home was everything and more to our clients.
So unique, the design stands the test of time alone and can be admired for its individuality and calmness, sitting seamlessly on the river.
Mark may I say, without a doubt our new home build has far exceeded our expectations. This was not an easy build, and definitely not one for an inexperienced builder. The demolition of our old home and rebuild of our new, accompanied by the combination/mix of materials were never a problem for you. You tackled it with a great sense of confidence and the end result is seamless only because of your attention to detail and your many years of experience. We can’t thank you enough and we are going to miss your jovial personality which made our journey throughout the build so enjoyable.
New Home Build – Design & Construction Project – Lower Beechmont – Gold Coast QLD
Our client came to us to build him a home on a sloping block of land in the lush Gold Coast Hinterland. The requirements for this home were to assimilate as much as possible with the bushland surroundings. It had to comply with the bush-fire rating for the area, and we had to ensure all their environmental requirements were adhered to for both the design, construction and maintenance provisions of the home. We also built the home to a budget, so the products used had to be cost-effective, fit with the design brief and provide a comfortable lifestyle for our client.
Elegant in its design, the warm timber features, corrugated steel accents and unique design make this home a true work of art. This strategic location commands a spectacular panorama over the Gold Coast Hinterland, framed by towering native trees. The homeowner requested a landing sitting high above the bushland to perform his yoga and for meditation. This home won two awards from the Master Builders, one for Work Place Health and Safety and the other for Best Home Slopping Sites (Unlimited Value).
Mark, I am more than happy for my home to be entered into the Master Builders Awards as you have delivered a home within our budget and on time. Your service and quality of work was exceptional not to mention the hurdles you had to jump through to have this home approved and the safety issues you endured whilst building my home. It is commendable. Good Luck with the Awards.
