ONE OF A KIND KELOWNA HOME DESIGNS

“I don’t think there is any one that cares more about making something look as good as humanly possible as we do”.

Craig Mohr, Owner Operator, Vineyard Developments.

There are five principles that go into our One of a Kind Custom Home Designs:

1. Great Living; Beauty through Balance & Harmony
2. Luxury; Unique and Individualized
3. Designs that Inspire and Delight
4. Distinctive & Timeless Homes
5. Innovative Thinking

 

1. Great Living; Beauty through Balance and Harmony

At Vineyard we gather inspiration from our clients, the site and the surrounding area to achieve an original concept. Understanding each client’s profile; their values, family, needs and wants ensures the design is tailored to their lifestyle.

We like to stand on the site with our clients before starting a project: to feel the landscape and show our clients a vision for their residence in its natural setting. By walking the location beforehand we can envision the blend of function and form to shape optimal design. This means all of the functional components work together harmoniously (i.e. you’re never searching for a light switch) and that the size, shape and volume of each room are balanced. We also take great care in the positioning of the home, choreographing the size of rooms and integrating view corridors.

Our surroundings inspire our developments. Frank Lloyd Wright’s idea of an organic house, of a unique structure that belongs to the land around it is a guiding principle at Vineyard Developments even though it is a rare find in the industry. In fact our tremendous respect for nature is why we are the leading custom home designer/builder to adopt a Built Green Platinum Certification for all our projects.

BUILT GREEN® homes are 3rd party certified, energy efficient and environmentally responsible homes. This label adds value to your home by promoting the use of resource-efficient, environmentally friendly, construction practices and products.

We maintain an inventory of Kelowna’s best lots with stunning views and always aim to make the most of the pure natural beauty that’s everywhere in the Valley for our Luxury Custom Homes to our Multi-family Developments.


2. Luxury; Unique and Individualized

“We have reached a point where luxury is defined by uniqueness. A uniqueness which reflects the individual; it is deeply personal and ever evolving. In a home it must be inviting and promote great living through beauty, balance and harmony. It is a way of surrounding yourself with that which both inspires and delights”.

Craig Mohr, Owner Operator, Vineyard Developments.

So many houses don’t belong to their owners; they’re missing the detail, the artistry that every well-designed house should have. At Vineyard it’s in our nature to understand what clients will connect with; creating Special, Ultra-Custom Show-piece homes that reflect each client’s style. No two designs are the same; just as no two clients are the same.

What differentiates Vineyard, Kelowna Custom Home Builders, is the unique individualization of the form. Each home is a Labor of Love; immense attention goes into every detail. When we design a house for our clients, we are creating their space, their experience of home and we do not take that lightly.


3. Designs that Inspire and Delight

Vineyard is known for exceeding client expectations in creating a synergy between a uniquely beautiful exterior and its functional, comfortable interior. The artistry comes from the client’s intention. This ensures their residence is comfortable; an environment where they can be their best self. We pride ourselves on inspired, original exteriors and functional, irresistibly livable interiors.


4. Distinctive and Timeless Structures

For over a decade, Vineyard has been beautifying Kelowna’s viewscapes with their distinctive blend of vision and style. As both a design and build company, Vineyard captures the essence of their client’s dream and translates it into reality, using the latest building products and their best applications to achieve results that speak for themselves. Vineyard designs award winning homes that are unforgettable.


5. Innovative Thinking

innovative 03 Kelowna Custom Home BuildersNever content to just build a house, Vineyard residences feature innovative design details and construction processes. From design to construction Vineyard Developments is always challenging the status quo. Striving to emulate the unique greatness of Picasso; creating designs that the masses have not seen, yet have mass appeal.

  • During Design: We understand how each aspect will be built; considering creative ways to minimize cost while achieving ultimate look and feel.
  • During Construction: We can see opportunities to optimize design and comfort as the building is taking shape.
  • Client Experience: We can anticipate and minimize challenges up front during design to ensure accurate budget and scheduling. We offer one Connection Point throughout. We are a one stop shop with a unique common thread of understanding.

Because of the value inherent in our full-circle process as a fully integrated custom design and build firm, we exclusively design homes we build and only build homes we have designed.

Client Engagement - Custom Homes Kelowna

“We operate on a simple, timeless policy by putting ourselves in the clients’ shoes. Our clients get the same level of service we would expect under the same circumstances. And as experienced builders, we have high expectations”.

Craig Mohr, Owner Operator, Vineyard Developments.

1. Clients are an Integral Part of the Creative Process
2. Balance the Relationship Between Budget, Schedule and Design/Build to Maximize Value
3. Effective Customer Communication
4. Warranty and Service Policy

1. Clients are an Integral Part of the Creative Process

Each Vineyard custom build starts with the client’s vision; Vineyard Developments uses our design and construction expertise to bring that vision to life, collaborating with our clients to complete projects of all shapes, sizes and styles within their budget and time frame.

Understanding each client’s profile; their values, family, needs, wants ensures the design is tailored to their lifestyle. At Vineyard it’s in our nature to understand what clients will connect with; creating Special, Ultra-Custom Show-pieces that reflect each client’s style. No two designs are the same; just as no two clients are the same.

Vineyard collaborates with clients throughout the process to understand and make optimal decisions working within desired parameters. All Design/Construction recommendations are made with the customer’s best interest and intention in mind.


2. Balance the Relationship Between Budget, Schedule and Design/Build to Maximize Value

As skilled and dedicated designers, developers and builders, we will complete our clients’ project within their budget and time frame. No surprises.

Our experience with innovative construction features or details provides us with a better understanding of costs for unique custom features and enables us to envision how they will be built during design which means we can provide a more accurate estimate up front. Changes made after the design is finalized typically have more significant impacts to cost and schedule than changes made in the design process which is why we spend a significant amount of time up front in the design phase with our clients.

Finally, we take into account each aspect of the project; including design, to ensure all aspects of the project are scheduled and move at a reasonable pace.

At Vineyard Developments clients benefit from an energetic, hands on owner who has a tremendous creative capacity and also the ability to think linearly to ensure each client’s custom home build is organized to run on time and on budget.


3. Effective Customer Communication

Building a luxury custom home is a big undertaking. At Vineyard, we encourage you to ask questions and believe that transparency is the best policy.

We ensure that we understand, establish and manage expectations of budget, schedule and design/build.We also we maintain a Detailed and Transparent Budget and Scheduling process. This includes Monthly and Quarterly client meetings to provide updates on budget and schedule. We operate on a 100% open-book basis. Every bid, invoice and receipt is available for our clients to review at any time.

We are a small company with owner-operated dedicated service. We are passionate about exemplary design concepts and construction techniques that reflect our client’s intention.
