About the company

I met the Directors of this company 4 years ago and have watched them grow from strength to strength, growth that is driven out of being dynamic and of the utmost commercial and design integrity.

They have a modernistic residential product that oozes style as much as it does functionality. Customers can work alongside the design team to customise their own design, or choose from standard designs at very competitive prices without taking shortcuts.

Their office is dynamic and buzzes with activity and interaction between the architectural and construction / project teams.

The Directors are visionary and it shows!
