Our Design Team are a highly skilled and well credentialed crew, equipped with Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch) and Civil Engineering (A.Eng).
Our Design Manager, Chris Sfiligoj, and has been with Latitude 37 since the beginning, nurturing a high-performing team of designers. This unique eye for structural efficiency ensures that every custom home concept not only looks spectacular and unique to each client, but under the skin its efficient and cost effective in its construction.
This overarching vision completes a balanced skillset across our design team, to ensure we deliver innovative custom designs that align with budgetary constraints.
Architects Act 1991 and the Architects Regulations 2015 dictate that for a business to be registered as an architect, one of its directors must also be a qualified architect.
Latitude 37 was founded by Director, Doug Macleod, who’s credentials lie within Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng) (Hons).
Engineering is a critical element of efficient structural design, which in the wrong hands, can easily blow out the budget. This has shaped Latitude 37s philosophy since its inception for efficient structural design and engineering that doesn’t compromise on design flair.
So on that basis, we can’t technically call ourselves an Architect, but that certainly doesn’t diminish the architectural credentials and skillset that lies within our design team, which we believe is most important.
When you engage with Latitude 37, we welcome every prospective client to share their architectural inspirations with us. This can help form the foundations of the design concept we will create for your custom home.
The most exciting stages of your design journey with Latitude 37 is our Design Presentation Meetings. This is where you get to see your home for the first time. To begin with we present your home as a schematic concept design. We continue to develop your design to a fully fledged and detailed 3D virtual tour, so that you can see exactly what your new home will look like and feel like to live in.
If you have already engaged with an architect, and are looking for a builder, Latitude 37 can provide a custom home proposal for your design. We are also here to provide feedback on your design to see if there is scope for refinement or improvement and cost engineering.
One of the benefits of engaging with Latitude 37’s design team is that we charge a nominal fee to prepare your concept design and back ourselves to deliver something exceptional that meets or exceeds your brief, and on budget.
We’ve seen many clients over the years who have spent tens of thousands with an independent building designer or architect to create a fantastic design, only to find that due to a lack of expertise around build costs and site complexity, its well over their budget.
It’s also worth highlighting that our ability to build on complex sites is what we’re renowned for. From sloping blocks, to complex topographies, when it comes to building custom homes for our client’s site, lifestyle and budget, our record stands for itself.
