In many ways, designing and building a home is very complicated. But in at least one way, it is very straightforward. A house cannot be a dream home unless you fully understand the clients needs. Every luxury home should be unique to its occupants. When designing a home, start with asking a lot of questions. Talk with them, listen to their needs, understand their wants, and help to translate those into a design and plan. Questions about how you live day-to-day in your home are the key. From the answers to these questions, we will create a list of priorities, which we then work with to determine what the right size and level of quality needs to be.
Once a decision to build has been reached the client will be anxious to have the building completed as quickly as possible. For many clients early completion may be the overriding priority, for example where staging a major sporting event is scheduled, or where a client is attempting to establish a market presence ahead of competitors, or to avail of tax incentives. Time is also of the essence in emergency situations such as fire or flood damage or where stabilisation works are required to dangerous structures.
