Hawthorn Victoria 


Designed by Victorian architectural firm Herbert and Howes, this stylish five-bedroom home built over three levels has a roof-top terrace and alfresco entertaining area incorporating a pool. Understanding the demographic of Hawthorn, owner-builder, Tim Dugdale decided the design should incorporate a larger than usual garage.

“We put in a four-car garage with a six-metre wide opening,” explains Tim. “The scale is befitting of this luxury home and in Hawthorn, many people have more than two cars. A garage this size also has the flexibility to be converted to a home cinema, gym or office should the owners not want to use all the space for cars.”


The Task

To complement the architectural aesthetic and clean lines, Tim needed a garage door frame that he could clad in the timber used throughout the facade.

The Solution

Stephen Wallace, B&D’s Mobile Showroom Consultant, met with Tim to view the build and discuss the garage door requirements. “It became clear to me that B&D’s unique Panelift® Flush Mount garage door system would be the ideal solution for this home,” says Stephen. This on-trend approach mounts a garage door so that the door cladding is flush with the surrounding façade instead of setback, creating a seamless integration to the home and maximising street appeal.

Tim selected the Biowood® Castellated door in Black Japan as his material as it is:

  • Durable and strong
  • Made from sustainable resin/wood composite
  • Termite, fire, water, mould and mildew resistant



The Flush Mount format provides an ideal alternative to tilt garage doors, which can only withstand very lightweight cladding, limiting their practicality.
