Architectural Design + A Better Build Experience

Architectural pleasures are often taken from the simplest of moments. Some of the most revered architecture celebrates the simple nuances of a home including its angles, layout and design in relation to its surrounding environment.

Designing architectural homes is a very rewarding profession. Marrying a client’s needs and vision with our knowledge and creativity, is a process we love. At Derbyshire we know how subtle design features make a home unique.

Our years of experience working with architects in Geelong, coupled with the craftsmanship of our trades, means our custom homes maintain a design performance for many years after they’re built.

Custom Home Builders, Ocean Grove: The Derbyshire Story

Derbyshire Homes is the realisation of a dream. It all started with a young builder working out of the back of his old green Kombi, with a vision to break away from the volume building model that dominated the building industry in the late 1980s.

This core belief endures – that building a home should be an exciting and personal journey and the finished product a symbol of pride. 

Today the award winning custom home build team at Derbyshire is made up of experienced professionals; estimators, construction managers, supervisors and interior design consultants. The core values of quality, communication, pride and integrity still permeate throughout the business 25 years later.
