Managing director, Dean Humphrey, launched Humphrey Homes in 1999 as a Registered Builder, transitioning his company into a Registered Architectural Practice in 2012 through the Architects Board of Western Australia. Humphrey Homes now operates as a combined architecture and building company, specialising in the design, build and project management of award-winning, bespoke homes.
With almost 20 years experience in the Perth housing market as a celebrated builder in Perth’s Western Suburbs, Dean is an advocate for architectural and building excellence in the West Australian industry. Dean combines his extensive building experience with a strong understanding of design and design integrity to deliver the best in bespoke lifestyle solutions for clients.
"My passion goes beyond building high-quality houses. I believe most good builders should be capable of that. My passion is to develop a vision with our clients, then carry that vision through the design and construction phases to create a beautiful home on time and within budget” says Dean.
Principal design architect Helen Marchesani shares Dean’s passion for great design. The philosophy at Humphrey Homes is centred on innovation and simplicity, the creative application of natural materials, and ‘honest’ architecture: spaces that not only look great, but are also tailored to clients’ needs. We look nationally and internationally for leading design thinking, materials and lifestyle ideas, and we are also inspired by our clients, who are encouraged to bring their own ideas to the table.
Delivering bespoke homes of all sizes and styles, Humphrey Homes provides sought-after project and budget management processes, experienced site supervision and excellence in building to deliver projects on budget, within timeframes and with exceptional quality and craftsmanship.
“We understand that designing and building a home is one of the biggest investments a person, couple or family can make, so we ensure we are as available, transparent, professional and flexible as possible during this process. We also understand the process and resulting house will effect lives and people’s futures, so one of my goals is to make the process as enjoyable and hassle-free as possible. Our KPI in this is a very simple one: sharing a glass of champagne with our client at the successful completion of their home. This would not be comfortable, or even possible, without a great working relationship. So far (touch wood!) we have a 100% success rate,” laughs Dean.
Humphrey Homes is a registered member of the Housing Industry Association (HIA), Master Builders Association (MBA), Architects Board of Western Australia (ABWA) and the Australian Institute of Architects (AIA). Dean is chair of the HIA Technical Services Committee and he sits on the HIA Regional Executive Committee.
