Home' Scoop Homes and Art : Insite 26 Spring 2010 Contents Architectural diversity
Our client had very clear ideas and was closely involved from early design
sketches to final completion. A great working relationship.
A new home, built to look like it’s been there a hundred years. Three levels at
the back on a sloping block and many customised features.
We workshopped the concept heavily with the client up front. The absence of
changes along the way led to an early completion and cost benefits.
A home completely tuned to the family’s lifestyle.
Comment: Our approach to custom building is to integrate the architecture and the building process. We believe our slant on this is unusual.
Our clients receive as much knowledge and power to influence the project as they desire.
An ultra-modern build that takes advantage of ocean views. Quite complex,
due to large areas of glass and exposed structural steel.
A technically challenging build on a heritage-listed home. Stonemasonry,
tuckpointing and elaborate carpentry to match its 1890’s origin.
Comment: Humphrey Builders is happy to take on challenging builds which require advanced craftsmanship.
Our trades people take a little extra time and they have the right attitude to quality.
A mature age couple wanting a resort feel, easy access and low maintenance.
An open, spacious, practical layout with natural light and a solar passive design.
Innovation in Housing Project of the Year Award winner. Hydronic underfloor
heating, rainwater har vesting, underground water storage and c-bus.
Comment: Humphrey Builders use in-house and specialist architects to create buildings that match our clients’ lifestyles.
We benefit from the experience of taking on ambitious projects and so do our clients.

The story of these homes
Six homes; eight awards. Why? We are noticeably different in that we
design AND build. It’s because we know that best results flow from the
tightest possible integration of architect, builder and client.
