Multi-Award Winning Designs.

There’s one unique feature that makes Bakker Homes one of Port Stephens and Newcastle’s most awarded custom home designers and builders: a talented, award-winning designer, Graeme Bakker.

In addition to his building design accreditation, and membership with the Building Designer’s Association of Australia, Graeme is also a fully qualified carpenter and building supervisors and carries these skills across to his designers. Renowned for providing innovative and outstanding custom home designs, we listen to your ideas and inspiration and then add our own practical ideas and skills to create the perfect home design that suits your unique lifestyle, budget and family.

We prioritise your needs above all else with Graeme drawing on his extensive architectural experience in order to create residential and commercial plans that maximise, space and functionality, without exceeding your budget. He will ensure that your home is designed to suit the orientation of your block to capture possible views, the flood of natural light and other important solar passive design principles.

Throughout the design process we can assist with council liaison, statements of environmental effects, Basix certificates, bushfire reports, development certificates and site feasibility studies. It is this comprehensive approach that allows us to continually design award winning homes.

Our team is trained in all forms of building design:

Luxury custom homes

Multi-residential projects

Duplex developments

Dual occupancy
