Takapuna Architectural New Build Home – Your Dream

Are You Looking For A New House In Takapuna Built To Your Own High-Quality Specifications?

Each person and family is unique, with different wants and needs. This applies to homes as much as any other aspect of their lives. Some will simply want a bigger home, while others will want to have a unique, architectural home, built especially for them.


What Defines An Architectural New Build?

Takapuna house builder.Modern architectural design for high-end houses focuses on designing homes suited to that particular family. It’s worth noting that not all architectural homes are multi-million dollar construction projects. A unique home can be designed and built for your wants, to suit a relatively modest budget.


In an architectural build, innovative design, the clever application of new, high-tech materials, and the intelligent use of natural light.  All of these come together to create spaces to work for, and suit, your family’s needs.


These facets set that home apart from the vast majority of new builds, built to standard plans.


Why Have An Architectural New Build Home In Takapuna?

Few things make a statement like a house, and with less than 3% of homes being designed by an architect, an exclusive home designed especially for you, makes an even bigger statement. For many, it is the embodiment of their success. It shows people your style, preferences, and gives a glimpse about how you are in the world.


A well-designed architectural home, built by craftsmen, will reflect the essence of you and your family. This is because an architect will work with you to discover exactly what you want, the things you like, and how your family operates in the home. These are then crafted to design a home specific to you and how you live.


What particular features and items do you want to make your home luxurious, fulfilling and easy-to-live in?


For example:-

  • Do you like entertaining? So will you want to maximise the indoor / outdoor flow?
  • How big do you want your kitchen and butlers pantry?
  • What materials have you always wanted?
  • Do you want Home Automation and Smart Technology?
  • Do you want to maximise energy efficiency?


Takapuna architectural new buildAll of these are possible when you commission an architectural-build home to your specifications and your own budget. We can introduce you to fabulous architects who will be able to convert your thoughts into a design crafted for your own, personal lifestyle.


One other benefit of an architectural build is that because of its uniqueness and exacting standards of construction, the house is a tremendous investment. You can be confident that when you come to move on, other people will have similarly high standards and will be impressed with the home you have helped design and had built.


The Process Of Building A Great New Home

The key to a successful architectural build is how we, as the builder and project manager, work closely with the client, the architect, and our teams of highly-skilled tradespeople.


From the initial discussions with you to discover your wants and needs, through design, iteration, and then the construction and fit-out. At every stage, we focus on clear communication with all parties so that everyone in the process knows what is happening.


Since we work with other discriminating clients, we are fully up-to-date with the latest materials and appliances. This means we can discuss and advise you on the best, most appropriate materials, fixtures and fittings for your own particular new home. That gives you the best combination of quality and value to build and deliver your new home.


In short, we can help you achieve a custom home design, built to your specifications.


Lack of Surprises

Takapuna new buildBesides a birthday party, few people like surprises. This is especially so when it comes to having an architectural home built.  You don’t have to look far to hear people exasperated at the massive budget blow-out on even a small house renovation job.  With a total new build, the opportunity for budget over-runs is huge with most builders.


We don’t let that happen.


We agree a price for materials and labour. If there are any changes along the way, we will discuss the price implications with you before anything goes ahead.


It has to be said that one of the most common causes for cost over-runs is the client changing design or specifications during the construction process. If a client has a change of mind, we will explain what that will mean in terms of time and cost. That you are fully aware of the impact before any work is undertaken.



Not home security, but your peace of mind with our house building.


Most NZ housebuilders have one accreditation, but we are members of the top three industry associations. We are:-


  • Licensed Building Practitioners
  • Registered Master Builders
  • New Zealand Certified Builders


Each of these has exacting standards and extensive vetting of every building company before that contractor can be admitted to the organisations.


On top of this, we offer the Master Build 10-Year Guarantee. You can see the details of that guarantee here.



A successful architectural build requires a few crucial elements

  • Experience,
  • Skill
  • A well-established business.


We meet all of those criteria, so you can rest assured that your architectural house build will be a success.


Given the scale and extent of work required for a high-spec, tailor-made home, we can only accept a few of these hugely satisfying projects each year.


However, it does take a long time to get the design and consent sorted before the construction can even start.
