Custom Design.

City Residence operates its own dedicated design studio and together with a highly regarded team of designers and draftspersons, your dream home will quickly become a reality.

It’s our flexible, and collaborative approach and commitment to design detailing that gives our homes the edge. Our design team have an intimate knowledge of the building and construction industry and are continually pushing the boundaries of liveable, mindful design.

City Residence works closely with you to bring your dream home to life.

A Partnership from start to finish

Each custom home we build reflects our clients. It all starts with listening and we take the time to get to know our clients, understand the way they live and design homes that meet their individual needs.

Through close collaboration between our designers and estimators, we are able to create associated project costs sooner. This provides our clients with peace of mind that their home will not only meet their aesthetic desire but also their budget.

We see the entire build process as a partnership and take a very personal approach, delivering homes that are distinctly different and as unique and individual as our clients.


Custom Design Process

1. Explore

During the discovery phase, one of our experienced Building and Design Consultants will work with you to explore the possibilities and develop an initial design brief. This process uncovers your vision, including the things you want most within your new home, unique requirements in the way you and your family live and importantly, your budget.

We spend the time upfront to ensure we are well positioned to get the most out of the design and specification stage and maximise all opportunities available to you.

2. Design

Once the design principals of your project and budgets are aligned, you will then be introduced to our in-house Designer who will take a detailed design brief. This includes an in-depth information session where we drill down on the aspects of your block that need to be considered along with your desired outcomes.

Our Designer will then guide you through a personalised and very exciting design process, presenting concept floorplans and profiles. This is where you will see how we use your vision as the inspiration behind the design and flow of your home, uniquely shaping it around the way you live.

3. Prepare

On approval of your design, you will then undertake the exciting task of selecting the finishes for your home at our Style Studio. All of this is undertaken in readiness of your Fixed-Price Tender.

On signing your Tender document your Contract documents will be prepared and once signed, permits will be ordered whilst your home is prepared for the building phase.

4. Build

We have a total team approach to customer service and as construction begins you will be introduced to our Client Service team. They’ll oversee every aspect of your build, working to timelines ensuring City Residence’s high level of detail and quality standards are adhered to. They’ll also provide you with regular updates on the progress of your home so you are kept informed at all times.

Your dedicated Client Support team will be there for you throughout every stage of the build, right through to handover.
