Welcome to Humphrey Homes. Thank you for taking the time to visit our website.
We specialise in the architecture, building and project management of uniquely designed, custom-built homes. By integrating both the architecture and building, our team at Humphrey Homes provides a unique, holistic approach to home building. We link the design and building phases under one roof to make the process as seamless and efficient as we can, while encouraging close collaboration amongst our team and our valued clients.
Our process of integrating the architecture, interior design and construction has proven to be a great success with many satisfied clients offering glowing testimonials (and occasionally allowing us to open their home for public viewing for a short time before taking possession). This is something that simply would not be possible without a client being extremely happy with the overall process - and of course the finished workmanship of their new home.
We are committed to ensuring reliability, consistency and transparency in our projects and in our working relationships delivering innovative, bespoke homes which are recognised for their unique architecture and building excellence.
Our design focus centres on architectural diversity ensuring we create designs our clients will love (as opposed to designs we can show off to our peers). As can be seen on the project Page on this website every home we create is unique, regardless of style, location or budget.
We do not have standard designs or design ‘themes’ for our homes. We start with a blank canvas and an open mind. We listen carefully to what our clients want and try to understand their vision for their lifestyle, their family and their budget. We then use our experience and expertise to interpret these ideas before translating them, initially, into ‘hand drawn’ sketches on butcher’s paper. Our initial designs always start in a very raw and organic form allowing full input and collaboration from our clients so they are always involved in the creative process from the very initial conceptual designs through to the completed plans.
At Humphrey Homes we also do not limit ourselves to a particular price range. We are as happy designing and building homes for around $700-800k as we are designing and building multimillion-dollar homes. Our values as a company are more around designing and building genuinely unique designs for our clients within an agreed budget, to an agreed timeframe and always, without compromise, to a high level of workmanship, regardless of budget or style (for industry recognition of the consistent quality of our workmanship take a look at our recent Awards Page)
Also, as a registered building company we oversee and manage each clients' budget while their home is being designed - not just when it is completed.
In the traditional design process it is not uncommon to have plans fully designed and completed only to have an estimate then done by a separate builder to realise the budget has been significantly blown, therefore requiring redesigning, re-estimating and the associated time delays and costs that goes along with the back and forth process.
At Humphrey Homes, by managing the design and building process under the one roof, by the same team of people, it allows for a far more efficient, seamless and cost effective process.
There is no blaming between architect and builder, simply because at Humphrey Homes the architect and builder are on the same team, working on your design together from day one. We work together from the start of design to end of construction ensuring every one of the many potential gaps in communication are avoided and filled.
We encourage people considering building a new home to at least have a chat with us. There are many more benefits we would be delighted to explain in person.
