Luxury custom homes

Knock down rebuild

Often the best way to buy into or stay in a neighbourhood is to knock down an outdated building and create a new home designed just for you.

Dual occupancy

Building two properties on a single block often makes financial sense. It’s a common approach for owners to create another home on their land to rent or sell, while re-imagining and re-building their current home.

Difficult blocks

Home sites come in all shapes and sizes. At Destination Living, our experience with difficult blocks, such as narrow, sloping blocks or north facing has led us to believe that the benefits of these blocks often outweigh the challenges, as long as your vision is approached creatively.

At Destination Living, our architectural expertise will help you make the most of any site, regardless of its shape, slope and orientation. We believe that every site has the potential to house a luxury, custom built home.

What our clients say

Coming in for the first client meeting with the architect and seeing the level of thought that went into the homes designed is what sold us. When we first saw the plans we were very excited, and thought they nailed it.
