At Ravida, we believe a truly bespoke home should be designed specifically to make the most of your block of land.
Our design process takes into account all aspects of the site in the context of how you intend to use it, and the various local restrictions that might apply, including planning schemes and zones, covenants and easements.
In addition, we explore the opportunities a specific site presents. Is there potential for a view of the city, mountains or bay? Is there a slope to work with (not against), a laneway at the rear, or a peculiar shape or orientation?
Whatever the case, we view it as an opportunity for clever, practical and beautiful design.
We look at how best to incorporate your key priorities, whether they include an outdoor area with pool, multiple undercover car spaces, or a specific number and size of rooms. Of course, at the same time, we’ll be making provision for all the ‘usual’ services, such as clotheslines, hot water units and air-conditioning systems.
By fully understanding the site and your ideas from the outset, we can maximise every aspect of the project, ensuring you get the best possible living space, style and value from your land.
Of course, there are plenty of nice homes you could live in, things in a home you could put up with, or things you could live without, but the whole point of a bespoke home is that is designed specifically to match your lifestyle.
At Ravida, we believe the best reason of all to create custom-designed home is to ensure you get all the things you want in your home, created in a way that works perfectly for you and your family. This is your opportunity to get…
Whatever it is your heart desires, we can deliver it.
Thirdly, we believe a custom-designed home should make the most of your budget.
By designing your home to suit your land, and taking advantage of the site’s attributes, we can achieve considerable efficiencies in terms of construction and site works.
Furthermore, by understanding your specific priorities, we can ensure that the budget is allocated accordingly – dedicating an appropriate amount of the budget to the features and elements that are most important to you. We then look at ways to maximise efficiency in areas of less importance, while maintaining the highest standards of quality.
Our vast experience, supplier networks and processes enable us to explore various options in terms of design, materials, construction methodology, fittings, fixtures and appliances, ensuring we can choose the best options to meet your vision and budget.
Being a commercial builder, we have access to construction methods and building materials at costs that most of our competitors are unable to achieve.
And because we handle both the design and construction processes, we are able to price-check the concept drawings and provide clear and accurate budget advice early in the design stage, preventing costly surprises later on.
Finally, a custom-designed, artisan-built Ravida home delivers much better ‘end value’ in two key respects:
It simply makes sense to choose a proven and experienced bespoke-design and construction specialist like Ravida to bring your dream Melbourne home to life.
