Renowned for their award-winning designs, Unique Built have been building custom designed homes throughout Brisbane for many years, having completed some of Queensland’s most innovative and spectacular luxury homes for literally hundreds of discerning clients.

Acclaimed builders of luxury custom designed homes in Brisbane

No two homes we build are ever the same. An industry leader in designer home construction, we’ve geared our business towards delivering outstanding homes that reflect the status, success, lifestyle and personalities of our individual clients.

Homes that are uniquely yours

Our designs span a range of sophisticated architectural styles, from luxury waterfront residences to spacious acreage homes and stunning urban properties. Homes that incorporate the latest advances in building design and environmental technology; homes designed for entertaining; homes that provide a peaceful escape from an increasingly hectic world. You can see some of our amazing custom homes in suburbs like Ascot, Bulimba, IndooroopillySt Lucia and Toowong.

As renowned custom home builders of exquisite luxury properties throughout Brisbane and south-east Queensland, we understand that a home is much more than just a building. To ensure years of enjoyment, we use only the finest materials, tradespeople and staff to complete the job to your utmost satisfaction.

Benefit from our experience

Our managing director, Jim Taylor is a licensed Master builder with over 30 years of building experience. His personal involvement at every stage of construction is proof that we care about your dreams and expectations.

Our passionate team of in-house designers, sales consultants, experienced tradesmen, building supervisors and office administration staff, guide clients through every stage of the building process, from the initial inquiry right through to the handover and after-sales service. The team is proud to consistently deliver homes of unrivalled excellence and architectural distinction.

Breathtaking home designs at affordable prices

While people generally associate custom designed homes with substantially higher building costs, our many years of experience have enabled us to refine our building techniques and ensure that our clients receive stunning home designs at affordable prices.

In most instances, we are able to incorporate the client’s personal design ideas, secure in the knowledge that the completed home will not be replicated within the same area. Your home is exactly matched to your family’s needs and lifestyle and its resale appeal is greatly enhanced.

Fixed Price Contracts

Unique Built is a strong, stable and financially secure company. We build on the basis of fixed price contracts, ensuring there are no unplanned budget variations when the final progress payment falls due. This is particularly important when building on sloping or difficult sites where building costs can escalate rapidly.

Interior fittings of the highest quality

Unique Built prides itself on the exceptional standard of joinery and internal finishes, luxury kitchens and bathroom designs that in turn, increase each home’s market appeal and potential resale value.

Advantages of Custom Home Designs

Help forge the ultimate home design – with an ordinary project builder, your choice of home design configurations is typically very limited and the list of optional extras is equally uninspiring. With a custom home design however, you have complete control over every element that makes up your wonderful new residence, including its architectural style (Georgian, Edwardian, Victoria, Art Deco, Contemporary – to list a few), the floor plan, the indoor and outdoor colour scheme (with the aid of our in-house interior design service, which is included as standard), the lighting, amenities and everything in between.

It’s purpose built for your budget – custom homes are often seen as being a pricier alternative to standard project homes, but it’s important to understand that despite carrying a cheaper base price, project home prices rise substantially when either minor inclusions are added or the floor plan is altered slightly. With a project home, you can expect heavy price hikes if you decide to modify the stove type, wall oven, architraves, tiling, taps and more.

When this is taken into account, clients soon realise that custom homes represent real value for money, especially when you consider that you’re getting an exclusive home design. Better still, we utilise fixed price contracts, so your quoted price on the contract will never change, unless you decide to make changes later on.

Environmentally friendly design – although many of the custom homes we build are at the larger end of the scale, each of them are eight-star energy efficient and take full advantage of the Queensland climate’s abundance of warmth and sunshine. We incorporate numerous innovative and eco-friendly technologies including rainwater catchments, grey water recycling units and only use the most efficient insulation and building materials.

Additionally, each home is carefully designed to capture each passing breeze, while utilising low power-consuming lighting and appliances. The energy efficiency of the home can be further enhanced through the installation of a solar power system. All of the above elements combine to create a home that places a reduced impact on the environment while ensuring a home design that is cheaper to run.

Two Storey Homes

When you enlist the services of Unique Built to design and construct your fabulous new custom home, you are treated to a truly personalised home building experience that is tailored to your every whim. The design process for our two storey homes begins with an initial consultation, where you’ll meet with our managing director, Jim Taylor along with the rest of our design team. Here we’ll discuss your plans for your ultimate dream home. Once your ideas have been transformed into a legitimate home design, council approval has been obtained, and you’ve signed the building contract, construction of your home can officially begin. During this time, you receive regular updates on the progress of your home build.

For a comprehensive list of all steps involved in the home building process, please refer to our building time frame page.

Single Storey Homes

A sizeable segment of our single storey customers request our services out of frustration with the offerings from project home building companies. Project builders typically have a very limited set of customisation options in place and when homebuyers do attempt to stray from the company’s rigid design templates, big costs are incurred. When you build a single storey with a custom home builder such as Unique Built, you are guaranteed a home that is purpose built just for you. You have complete control of the exterior and interior stylings, the layout, the size of the rooms, the number of rooms, create comforts and more. The design is entirely up to you.

Our team of award winning personnel have comprehensive experience in the development of aesthetically beautiful single storey homes that are an absolute joy to live in. Avoid the frustrations associated with mundane, template home designs and instead opt to have the custom home of your dreams. Talk to us today to find out more.

Narrow Block Homes

Narrow blocks are commonplace throughout many regions in Brisbane with land prices at a premium, it makes sense to build vertically on smaller land plots. The abundance of smaller land sizes has created a big demand for home builders who can design innovative home solutions in more restricted spaces. We have considerable experience in design and construction of outstanding home designs on more moderately sized blocks. Call us to an arrange an inspection of your proposed site.

Split Level Homes

Split level home designs are perfect for those who wish to build on sloping blocks. Building on plots of land that have significant incline presents a unique set of challenges and requires special expertise to achieve designs that cater to the needs of the client, while satisfying strict council building guidelines pertaining to such home builds. Jim Taylor and the team at Unique Built have built many split level homes since the company’s inception back in 1978. For more information about our split-level home designs, get in touch with Jim Taylor on 0477 224 426.

25 Year Structural Guarantee

When choosing Unique Built, clients are treated to a host of benefits, including free home design, free interior decorating assistance PLUS a 25 year structural guarantee with every home we build.
