Kensington Design Testimonials

Kensington Design is unique.

Kensington Design was established more than 45 years ago...

We are always pleased and somewhat humbled when we recieve an accolade for our efforts. In sharing this information, it lets our future clients know how we are valued in the market, which is important.

Since 1992 the company has received more than 60 awards for design and building. This makes Kensington Design Western Australia's most awarded small builder of individually designed houses. Some of our awards are featured below.

  • Ann Goode - Nedlands Building with Kensington Design was a delight from the start. The ideas they present are so clever. They take the time to really listen to you and what you want and have the extraordinary ability to turn that into something fabulous.

    I'm still getting compliments about my home and how it fits into the streetscape as though it was always here. They are true professionals and master craftsmen.
  • Marg Carman - Nedlands Highly recommend Kensington Design. From my first meeting I felt confident my new house building project (a first for me!) was in expert hands with this small but professional company.

    Hugh's skill in individual design, and their amazing patience and friendly encouragement allowed me to relax and actually enjoy the project as an exciting adventure. Constant on-site supervision of the actual building process was highly valued by their various trades meaning nothing was overlooked or missed. All members were very open and encouraging with my occasional variation considerations, meanwhile offering wise advice. All tradesmen employed have long standing connections with Kensington Design due to the high standard of their work.

    All were courteous, approachable and tidy. Finally, Jenny, Wonder-woman in the office, would always happily receive my calls and was prompt in addressing any of my concerns. So happy my friend recommended Kensington Design, and I am equally happy to do so.
  • A G - East Fremantle From the start my design and build experience with Kensington Design was a delight. They are consummate professionals with an eye for the extra details that make a house a home.
  • Ian Cowie - South Perth Kensington Design was extremely helpful in designing our beautiful new extension. Their concept seamlessly integrated the old and the new parts of our home. The designers were particularly interested in how we actually lived and were able to translate this information into a highly functional and effective new living space. The quality of the workmanship on the new extension was first class. Further, nothing was too much trouble for Kensington during the construction process.

    They carefully listened to our thoughts and responded with great ideas. There are so many decisions to be made in a building project which can, at times, seem overwhelming. Kensington Design were able to assist with all of the decisions which relieved us of a great deal of pressure. I would highly recommend Kensington Design if you are seeking great design outcomes and a high quality build, with limited stress.
  • Tom & Christel Hodgkinson - East Fremantle Working with the team at Kensington Design has been a wonderful experience. The ability of the small, dedicated team to embrace our vision (a vision that pushed the boundaries in many areas!), marry that with a piece of land full of challenges and loads of potential, and deliver a design for a home that surpassed our expectations was exceptional.

    Their commitment to working closely with my wife and I to really understand who we are and how we live was what really made the difference for us. Their versatility really shined in taking our personal style and molding that into a beautiful and individual home that we feel is not only an expression of ourselves, but a home that makes you want to stop in the street and admire!

    We have no hesitation in recommending Hugh and the team at Kensington Design for any custom home design and building project. Thank you for all your time, effort and expertise, we are forever grateful.
