Owner's insight

“Brilliant. Simple, Quick, and Professional. The design process was creative, and thorough. We were very impressed with the ability of the architect to site the house within our budget constraints. The build phase was just as impressive.”

Mark and Melanie Smith

"After an exhausting 3 years of design, development and planning with an architect, we were confronted with a budget which was $350K over what was originally discussed and estimated. Disappointed, but determined to build a house on our beautiful site, we researched the market for 6 months looking into different types of  houses, from commissioning another architect, to prefabricated modular systems already in the marketplace.

Intermode offered us a product which was different. It was a combination of a unique, distinctive, modern design, with a prefabricated element that allowed it to be built quickly. As we had waited so long, we really wanted to achieve a result as quickly as possible. We first saw the Intermode design between the pages of Vogue Magazine literally days before we were to reluctantly sign with another company. Instantly we fell in love with the simple design, all the glass, and the clean lines. Within an hour we were on the phone to Nick and met within days. The reason behind choosing Intermode was the design, the size, the value in what was included, plus the reputation of Carr Design as an architectural firm.

The design process was creative, and thorough. It took into consideration the difficulty of our site and responding beautifully to our brief of capturing the amazing 180 degree views of the Warburton ranges. We were very impressed with the ability of the architect to site the house within our budget constraints. The build phase was just as impressive.
Melbourne has had one of its wettest winters in the past 10 – 15 years. The builders did an amazing job given the conditions and delivered us a beautiful house, only a few weeks over the original time schedule, but most importantly, on budget.

The end product is a house which we will most likely live in for 15 – 20 years. We have 2 young boys and they along with us absolutely love their new bedrooms. Modern design, clean lines, with beautiful daylight views. The build quality and attention to detail with the fixtures and fittings has more than delivered on our expectations. Every room has amazing views, the bathrooms make you want to bathe longer and the kitchen is beautifully equipped with the European appliances. Many thanks to the team at Intermode.

We have already referred the Intermode product to a number of people."
