In the world of contemporary housing, a number of diverse design criteria have to be considered. To achieve a residence that ticks all the right boxes, it makes sense to approach a designer who considers every aspect as part of the cohesive whole.

Aspect Homes, in business for more than 26 years, specialises in custom-designed, high-end homes. Director Michael Sasso says his emphasis is on innovation and practical construction solutions.

"Our extensive design processes ensure that a design concept is the best it can be for the client's requirements and budget, and also addresses the site and location of the home," Sasso says.

Services offered by Aspect Homes include site selection and appraisal, building design and working drawing documentation, overseeing the process of development and building approval, and fixed lump sum contracts for building or project management. A full interior design service and the design and management of landscape works are also part of Aspect's extensive services to clients.

Sasso says a professional, personalised, hands-on approach ensures Aspect Homes' clients see their personal style reflected in their new homes.

Over the years, Aspect Homes has also won the respect of its industry peers. The forward-looking company has won over 30 awards and received many commendations for innovative design and skilled workmanship.

"Key to our success has been the principles of our designs, which concentrate on a good flow of interior spaces, lots of light, and a strong indoor-outdoor relationship," he says. "Our projects are visually exciting, express the latest design trends and use contemporary materials. All our homes are built with a personal commitment to quality."

The houses on these pages provide a good example of Aspect Homes' ability to think outside the square. Kitchens, as the heart of the home, connect to most areas of the residence, including the outdoor living spaces. The houses are designed according to principles of public zones and areas of privacy while the open-plan interiors offer site lines through the public spaces, private spaces are shielded both visually and acoustically.

"In-depth experience in modern construction principles and the use of contemporary building materials mean we can also introduce passive solar design principles into our homes," Sasso says.

While contemporary residential architecture can be considered to have a cool aesthetic, all Aspect Homes designs place an emphasis on the use of natural materials and a warm colour palette.

"Wherever possible, traditional trades and materials are utilised to achieve the desired outcome," says Sasso. "This helps Aspect Homes create what appears to be expensive design solutions but which all come in under a reasonable budget.
