Custom Home Design + Build Management
Studio 818’s designer-led framework for designing and building custom homes stands in stark contrast to conventional approaches. Our process minimizes change orders, reduces construction timelines and boosts overall project efficiency.
As developers of more than 40 of our own designer spec homes we understand the challenges you face when it comes to designing and building a custom home from the ground up. We know from experience that if you take the conventional approach to building a custom home you’ll end up with:
⊗ An Architect or Interior Designer who doesn’t understand or is able to guide you on costs
⊗ Contractors who mislead you on budgets just to get you into contact
⊗ And an unmanaged process that takes over your life.
But you don’t have to fall prey to the typical problems. When you work with Studio 818 we’ll help you avoid the design flaws, change orders and time suck that typically comes with custom homes.
Our designer-led Design + Build Management framework turns the typical plan development process on its’ head. Instead of starting with the architecture and envelope of the structure, we design from the inside out.
In our framework the first step in designing your masterplan is to create the ideal space plan for you and your family. Using our in-house lifestyle analysis, we determine the optimal flow and function that best compliments the way you live, entertain and relax. Once we have developed the conceptual space plan then we wrap that design with the structure and building envelope that will complete the design aesthetic you want.
During the design development phase of our framework we take the lead working in parallel with the architect, engineers and landscape architect to create a cohesive integrated plan. By working this way, the conflicts and impracticalities that normally arise during construction are much more likely to come to light during design development. These issues can be handled ‘on paper’ rather than during actual construction.
‘Full-service’ means we oversee the hundreds of moving parts required to create your dream design, document it and bring it into reality with turn-key convenience. With our Design + Build Management framework for custom homes we simplify your life as your single point of contact for the project. We handle all the headaches for you from concept to completion.
With Studio 818’s designer-led framework the design team takes the lead from conceptual planning, into design development, through construction — all the way to completion. With this top-level design-focused oversight we’re able to keep your project on-target with a relentless focus on efficiency.
Before the first hammer swings every detail is pre-planned to control project costs and increase efficiency. When construction begins we stand in the gap for you handling all the challenges that arise while protecting you, your design and your budget.
