They say that individuals make judgements on the physical appearance of something within one-tenth of a second. So, you could say that that the front elevation of your home is the most important feature, as it is the first impression!

Taking you through this design series are 3 experts from BGC Housing Group who will share their wealth of knowledge and passion for home design.


Our expert Katrina is team leader for the TERRACE Homes Contract Administration Team with 10 years experience in the industry. Her favourite aspect of home design is how personalisation can really make a house feel like a home, “I love how the choices an individual makes can change the same overall elevation, clients can really personalise their homes even when the base design is the same.”


Briana is a Contract Administrator for Now Living who has worked in the industry for the last 18 months. Briana says the sky is the limit when it comes to design and is excited by design that will last the test of time, “I love how design is a true expression of the designer. To think that 30 years from now that expression could still be out there is a beautiful thought.”


Our final expert is Sarah, Senior Contracts Administrator Team Leader for The First Home Buyer Tier at BGC Housing Group. Sarah has 10 years of experience in the industry and shares a true passion for home design. She loves being able to assist clients in bringing their dreams into reality, “It’s always rewarding to see the finished product and the concept come to life! Building and owning your own home is such an accomplishment and milestone and one which deserves to be celebrated!”
