We seek out and collaborate with renowned architects and interior designers to ensure each project is a harmonious fusion of aesthetics and functionality. We have a deep market knowledge and bring a global perspective to design trends, products and finishes. 

Top-class construction is critical with the ongoing clean lines and contemporary architecture trends. This laser focus for delivering quality every time is applied, whether it’s a modern beachfront estate or a classic waterfront residence. 

Client-Centric Design Process:

What sets Murray Homes apart is our unwavering commitment to a client-centric approach. The team at Murray Homes understands that each client is unique, and their homes should reflect their tastes and lifestyles. From the initial consultation to the final touches, we foster open communication, ensuring the client’s vision is met and exceeded.

Murray Homes prides itself on designing homes for our clients around how they want to live, and attention to detail is vital; sitting down with clients and listening to their ideas, then incorporating those wishes to create a unique design and construction plan tailored to their specific needs and lifestyle.

As part of the design process, we use cutting-edge tools to create realistic renderings of the custom home or remodel, which allows homeowners to view and compare design selections. 

Any revision or alternate finishes can be easily incorporated into the design process and downloaded to a tablet or phone for review. This makes the whole design process inclusive and ensures the project moves towards completion on time and within budget.
