Design & construction

Working in partnership with the architect, a brief was developed which included a minimalist approach to house design; flexible, family friendly spaces; harmony between the inside and outside and as eco-friendly as possible.

With passion and attention to detail the owners have created and project managed an excellent team of mostly local building engineers and exceptionally skilled trades. With their fantastic commitment a successful house build was completed in budget and on time. The result is a unique and inspiring home surrounded by natural light, greenery and wildlife; professionally designed interiors and a level B energy efficiency rating.
