home design that is right for you

 

Our History

 
BP Architects have been creating their Clients’ dream homes for almost 20 years.  Dream homes that are as unique as the people who live in them.
 
Do you dream of having a beautiful energy-efficient home?  A home that is comfortable to live in so you can enjoy in every season.  Without overheating or getting too cold.  Specifically, without you worrying about high energy bills.  Does your family need more room to grow?  Or are you looking to create a haven for your retirement years?  Is your dream home part of your life transition? 
Furthermore, have you drafted a floor plan?  But you are not sure what to do next?  Well, if this is you, then it doesn’t have to be this way.    Because, no matter what your dream home goal is, BP Architects can help you achieve it.

your dream home

 
Many people put off renovating or building their dream homes.  For instance, they may be afraid of how much it may cost.  On the other hand, they might not know where to start.  Maybe they don’t know which materials are the best to use.  BP Architects can help take the uncertainty of renovating or building your new home.  Each home we design is a beautiful sustainable and environmentally friendly home, which provides our Clients with a luxury lifestyle in comfort.  Also, cost savings with low household energy bills.
 
Through every step of the design process, we consult with our clients.  This way we ensure that the resulting home design is the home of their dreams.  Each home project receives specific advice.  From the Concept design.  To the most cost-effective materials.  And discussions on your hopes and dreams for a healthy home.  Your likes and dislikes for house design and aesthetics.  And your budget.  BP Architecture takes care of all your Permit documents.  So there are no loose ends to worry you.  You can learn more about our design process for our Client’s homes on our Design Process page.
 
You spend a lot of your time in your home.  So why not make it your dream home.  A beautiful, healthy home to enjoy.  So that you can spend more time with your family, or entertain your friends on a hot summer evening under your garden pergola.  Or find a calm retreat in your home at the end of a long day.  BP Architects wants to help you get the home and space that’s right for you and your family.  Speak to Bridget at BP Architects today and find out how you can get your Dream Home.

How Do I Find the Best Architect to Design My Home?

 
If you are thinking of building your dream home, you would have heard the horror stories.  About home projects going awry.  Such as builder’s using the wrong building materials.  A house built not according to the house plans.  Or a housing project going way over budget.
 
We communicate with our clients every step of the way to avoid any confusion.  We’re proud of the services we provide our Clients.  And our Clients’ Dreams homes that we help create.  Client satisfaction is what we want.  And our Clients share their experience with BP Architects in their testimonials.

Good Design Skills

Looking for the best architect to design your home?  Well, there are several factors to consider.  First, you want an architect who specialises in house design that you find appealing.  Above all, a skilled architect can design your home so that it exceeds your expectations.  For example, after we presented the Sketch design for their Home.  Jan, from Sunbury, said that,

“Bridget took our ideas for our dream eco-home and made them so much better.”  Jan, Sunbury Home Owner.

 

Good Communication

Designing your dream home requires excellent communication and also knowing that your architect considers your input.  You want to know that the architect will listen to you.  Indeed, the architect hears what you are saying likewise, that you are both on the same page when it comes to your dream home design.  Indeed you want to feel that you understand each other.  In particular, that the architect understands what is important to you in your dream home.
 
Accordingly, you want an architect who is open to your feedback on your home design with the result that incorporates your input into your home design.  Furthermore, you want to know that you are getting a good return on your investment in your home design.  To have the house design that will best suit you.
 
As part of our design process for our Client’s homes, we engage them with a review of their project.  We develop a Concept Plan so that all the essential ideas are in place from the very start of each house design.  Subsequently, we allow our Clients time to think about new concepts introduced to them.  At the same time consider how these concepts and ideas will make an impact on their new home design.
 
Finally, every architect has their design process and design approach.  As our Client Jan from the Sunbury Home pointed out to me:
“You can choose two different architects and end up with two different homes”.  Jan, Sunbury Home Owner.
So you want to select the right architect for you.  So that you get the best home design for your dream home.  So that you have a customised home that allows you to live your ideal lifestyle.  As a result lets, you spend your time on the essential things in life.
 

Learn from Others

Learning from the experience of others is one of the best ways to find the right architect for you.  People will tend to be very honest about negative experiences.  Also positive experiences.  At the same time, you may learn how to avoid mistakes in your dream home project.  So read up on our Client Testimonials Most importantly learn from other people’s experiences with their dream home projects.  As well as applying this knowledge to your very own dream home.

 

What We Can Do For You

 
You may have heard of sustainable homes and the many benefits that come with a having a sustainable home.  Such as comfortable indoor air temperatures and low energy bills.  Although a sustainable home is eco-friendly, that doesn’t have to mean that it will be more expensive.

 

 

your Wish LIst

 

Before we start each home design, we ask our clients to write a wish list.  Your wish list includes all the features you want in your dream home.  Without limiting yourself on what is and isn’t possible.  This list helps our clients realise what is important to them in a house.  And helps them to focus on what is essential.  And differentiates between what necessary to have and what could be a passing trend?  It is a starting point for our Client’s design.  It can also help manage building costs.  As changing the plan once the builder is building your home means extra costs.
 
We also discuss your home plan options. Whether it is best for you to build a new dream home or if renovating your existing house is the best option for you.  Each Client’s situation is different.  We want to ensure you have all the information you need to make well-informed decisions.  We pride ourselves on finding affordable solutions for all our clients.  Regardless of how large or small their project may be.
 

Sustainable Homes with Small Ecological Footprints

We aim to create sustainable homes that leave small ecological footprints.  Such as homes that need little heating during winter.  Or no air conditioning during summer.  With natural daylight provides good lighting levels throughout the house.  And little energy use in the household and water efficient specifications.  Homes with low levels of airborne allergens and chemicals.
 
You want to know that your dream home is a healthy home.  That nature warms and cools your home for free.  That you don’t need to rely on whole house heating or cooling systems.  Homes with good indoor air quality.  With low levels of chemicals in the indoor air.
 
Having your home designed for you is an exciting time.  For our clients, they see their ideas and visions for their dream home come true.  We are happy to help our Clients journey to their dream home.  You can read our Client Testimonials.  Learn about their experiences in seeing their dream homes come true.
