Architect Model

Bespoke design = variable costs

The architect

An architect designs your home without discussions with engineers, builders and interior designers.

You can’t walk through the home design and experience the layout, proportions of the spaces and quality of the fixtures and fittings.

Bespoke design

Once the design is completed, the plan is passed on to an engineer.

The engineer needs to work with the plans supplied by the architect and has no input into the viability and costs of the structural design.

The engineer

The engineer designs the structural systems of the house without any consultations with the contracting builder.

They may find costly structural issues with the plan which needs to go back to the architect for alterations, adding to the client’s overall costs.

Building tender

The client is happy with the design but at this stage won’t know the true costs of the build or whether it’s on budget until they tender it out to different builders.

Often quotes come back with varying degrees of build quality and estimates.

Quote and fees

It’s up to the client to determine which builder quotes will deliver the best final outcome for them. 

Throughout the whole process, the architect’s fees are paid as each stage is completed with many architects charging around 6%-18% of your final build costs.

Ongoing costs

Throughout the building process often unexpected issues arise which can add to the build cost. 

The client will sometimes want to change aspects of the design once they visit and see the build take shape which will add further costs. 

As it is a bespoke build, materials, fittings and features cannot be sourced in bulk and has to be custom made to the architect’s specifications, therefore adding to the overall build cost.

Arli Model

Pre-designed architectural floorplans = fixed costs

Experts working together

At Arli our architects, engineers and interior designers collaborate on each home design.

Our experts work together to find savings and economical solutions without compromising the design quality.

This unique approach allows Arli to create architecturally-designed homes at an affordable price.

Curated designs

Arli presents a selection of home designs only after our experts have considered the design of the floorplans, architectual features, interiors and materials to make the build economical.

Our interior schemes are curated by DKO Architecture who specialise in bespoke residential homes and commercial architecture. 

You can choose the best layout, facade and interior palettes for your needs knowing that experts with years of experience and expertise are behind the home designs and interior selections presented.

Savings we pass on to you

Once the architecture and interior design is finalised, we can then achieve further cost savings through purchasing fixtures, fittings and materials in bulk.

We negotiate with our suppliers for the best prices and savings which we pass on to you in the base price.

Fixed costs

Our designs, inclusions and costs are transparent and fixed before you commit to building your home.

Frequently asked questions

We collaborate with renowned architects so we can offer you contemporary home designs underpinned by architectural design principles.

Our entire portfolio of homes is designed by architects rather than a draftsperson commonly used by volume builders. This means that every space is designed with practical, aesthetic and sustainable considerations in mind.

The unique collaboration between architect, interior designer, engineer and builder at the initial design stage allows us to consider the whole build from design, structural engineering, construction and cost upfront.

We channel our expertise into designing each amazing, unique home design. Then we build it many times over to deliver volume cost savings for our customers.

We only allow minimal changes to maintain the architectural integrity of our designs. There’s a reason why you’ll instantly fall in love with an Arli Home and feel so great walking through our spaces. If we make too many changes, the carefully considered function, flow and architectural vision may be compromised. 

We offer you a high-end product with quality inclusions at an affordable price. We do this by making choices in the initial design process to ensure the design is built cost-effectively without wastage.

We negotiate the best prices with our suppliers and pass those savings back to you in the base price. Once a design is customised, it is outside our standard design scope, and any changes are charged at a custom rate.

Our architects and interior designers curate a high-end selection of inclusions that complements our home designs. It takes out the guesswork at your selections meeting.

We are transparent in presenting the design, inclusions and pricing upfront, so you know what you get before we even start discussing your project and before making any commitments.

We aim to remove hidden costs and only provide a small selection of upgrades so that you can move into your home knowing it will look exactly like the home you see on display.
