Jim & Chris


“We really wanted an indoor/outdoor flow, and we have achieved this with our open spaces and large opening doors. We have a spacious home, yet it’s incredibly compact that fits our site perfectly!"

The van Beeks


“We really love our house, Maree was great to work with and John was the go to guy!”


Gerard & Judy


“We love EVERYTHING about our home!!! – We love the contrasting colours and are pleased we used a different colour in the bedrooms. We love the spaces and the acoustics are well balanced. In our downstairs living, we can open all the doors and the we love the way our indoor/outdoor flow emerges into the dunes and then out to sea. We loved the communication and were impressed on how quickly our home was built, especially to the quality that it is. We wouldn’t change anything!”

Mr Fuller & Ms Travers

Ohope Beach

“We just love our home, it has a functional layout and a contemporary feel of openness. Options are important and we felt we were given them. We felt that we were offered constructive, uncompromising feedback, which is really important. We were offered great choices for our interior with regards to colours and textures and we are so happy with the end results of our beautiful home. Our construction manager was pragmatic and got things organised and done. He was great at offering solutions. We are really, really, happy with how our home feels and looks.”
