Luxury Residential Developments

When starting out on a development project it is critical to understand and clarify your goals and objective.

Whether you want a multi dwelling development of 3 or more or a dual occupancy with a plan live in one dwelling and sell or rent the others, it is important to consider how each dwelling is designed and specified for its purpose and target market.

Understanding how this particular development fits into your overall investment strategy, whether it is your first project or your fifteenth is also an important consideration.

Tailoring the design requirements for your development strategy and implementing the correct process can save you a considerable amount of time, money and heartache.

Why finding the right company to work with is critical for success

Finding a company that understands what you are trying to achieve, that offers the services you require and whom you can see yourself working with is a key first step to realising a successful project outcome.

Why good design matters

Whether good, bad or indifferent ‘design quality’ is the defining factor in the outcome of any home.
Aside from the joy of living in a well-designed and functional dwelling, from a developer’s perspective it also makes good business and financial sense.

When a house is poorly designed potential buyers may not say things like “I don’t like the design” they will often say things like “I don’t know why I don’t like it, I just don’t like it” or “It just doesn’t feel right.”
This can lead to potential buyers turning away and ultimately a reduced sales price.

It may seem like a quick and cheap option at the time, but in reality a poor design is often a false economy and can end up costing a lot of money when it comes to the sale and realisation of a development project.

At a fraction of the total cost of a project, and for not much more than paying someone for a bad design, engaging an architect to design your development is a sound investment in your project.
