Take a journey through some of the key milestones of the Latitude 37 story.


Humble Beginnings

Latitude 37 Projects was founded as a one-source destination for custom home design and construction in Melbourne Australia, backed by years of experience in construction and property.


Client Referrals Growth

Following the completion of the group’s first custom homes in the Sandhurst Golf Estate, we experienced major business growth through client referrals.


Custom Home Build Growth

Rebranding to Latitude 37 Homes, we delivered a large number of custom home builds to meet market demand.


Winner HIA Custom Built Home

Early accolades came in the form of 2008 Master Builders Best Custom Home and 2009 Housing Industry of Australia (HIA) Custom Built Home and Townhouse/Villa over 10 dwellings.


Display Home Launch

The first dedicated display home on Belmore Road in Balwyn Melbourne opened in 2014. The team won HIA Professional Medium Builder in 2014 and 2015.


10 Years of Latitude 37

At this time, Latitude 37 was delivering up to 150 homes a year for clients across Melbourne.


Transition to Premium Custom Homes

In 2018, we strategically reduced the number of homes delivered to 35-40 premium, bespoke homes each year to focus on increasingly larger and complex quality projects.


Winner HIA Professional Medium Builder

At the national HIA annual awards, we won the Professional Medium Builder of the Year.


Winner of Best Display Home in Australia

Encapsulating modern luxury with quality craftsmanship, our Sanctuary display home in Balwyn North was awarded the 2022 Master Builders’ Best Display Home in Australia.
