How We Work
Custom Built Homes.
Kensington Design is a personalised design and building company offering complete 'in house' design and building services.
We create individual homes for our clients throughout Perth and Western Australia.
For a new build, an initial meeting at our office with designers and Hugh Whetters will provide an opportunity to discuss the design brief and budget constraints. For renovation and additions a meeting on site is the most effective way to begin. The next step is to engage Kensington Design as independent designers in accordance with our standard fee schedule.
Development of design concepts then flow from each Client's individual wish list and the unique characteristics of the site, including orientation, topography, micro climatic conditions, views and privacy elements.
On completion of documentation a detailed cost schedule is prepared. Each element of the construction cost is presented in an open book format and a contract price is offered. However, there is no obligation to build with Kensington Design.
By entering into a building contract with us, a seamless transition into the construction phase ensues and established relationships are maintained and developed all the way through to completion and beyond.
For further information and to discuss our fee schedule for the design and documentation please contact us.
We've received more than 60 awards for design and building including the HIA Australian Home of the Year and the inaugural HIA Australian Residential Building Designer of the Year.
Client Focused House Builder.
As a responsible design and building company, our focus is on you all the way. Clear understanding at each phase is vital for communication and ultimately, achievement for our clients.
Proven, results-driven results.
We work directly with each individual client throughout the design process and seek to connect the indoor and outdoor spaces while incorporating passive solar principles at every opportunity.
What our clients have told us.
It is always rewarding and gratifying to know you are on the right track with your clients.
I wanted to hire the best and after looking at several other companies, I knew Jacob was the perfect guy for the job. He is a true professional.
Constant on-site supervision of the actual building process was highly valued by their various trades meaning nothing was overlooked or missed.
I would highly recommend Kensington Design if you are seeking great design outcomes and a high quality build, with limited stress.

Their versatility really shined in taking our personal style and molding that into a beautiful and individual home that we feel is an expression of ourselves.
