The company name Beaudomus is infused with meaning. ‘Beau’ is French for beautiful and ‘domus’ is Latin for strength. It well reﬂects the company’s aim to build beautiful homes that stand the test of time, says company director Graeme Fan who started Beaudomus in 2015.
“Everything I do is fundamentally built on quality,” he says. “Other important aspects of each home are mindfulness, wellness and wellbeing.”
Graeme previously worked in London developing high quality homes on behalf of a niche property investment ﬁrm. As head of developments he directed design and construction teams and managed the developments to successful completion.
Graeme says he created Beaudomus when he returned home to live in New Zealand and bring up his young family as he wanted to make his contribution towards helping people thrive despite today’s demanding lifestyles.
He believes that by creating high quality beautifully designed homes, they give back to its owners a feeling of rejuvenation, reconnection and excitement – qualities he believes are essential counterpoints to life’s frantic pace.
An important aspect of Beaudomus is creating healthy homes that enhance the lives of the occupants. A great deal of the thought goes into each home taking into account how people like to live.
Graeme invests time researching new technologies and methodologies to promote wellbeing in buildings and is a proud member of the NZ Green Building Council and a qualiﬁed NZGBC Homestar Practitioner.
A good example of Graeme’s work is the development he completed in Finch Street, Western Springs.
The site was originally home to a run down villa, which Graeme restored, subdivided the property and built two upmarket townhouses. The houses are ﬁnished to a high standard of craftsmanship and beautifully detailed.
The homes are double glazed and well insulated and include features such as under ﬂoor gas ﬁ red heating and a feature ﬁreplace.
Texture is important and the homes are clad in cedar and rendered brick. Inside a feature staircase anchors the design leading to a large skylight that ﬂoods the properties with light.
Understanding the importance of spatial conﬁguration and how a property ﬂows/connects is important.
These townhouses boast a good connection to the outdoor space with full height triple sliders from the open plan living area. At present Graeme is focusing on low-rise boutique apartment and townhouse projects in Auckland.
He aims to continue to offer a very boutique service focusing strongly on quality and design aesthetics. As well as undertaking his own developments, he offers a development management consultancy service to help others who don’t have the experience, network or time to maximise the opportunity.
Building and design is obviously a passion for Graeme who is gradually completing a Diploma in Interior Architecture at the world-renowned Inchbald School of Design in addition to operating his growing business.
Graeme works closely with the architect on this aspect of each project. Operating for a sophisticated discerning market means he aims to always deliver innovative, unique homes to the Auckland market.
“I like working with like-minded people who are passionate about quality and achieving a positive outcome for all concerned.
I love being able to hand over a beautiful property people will love for years to come.”
