About Us

Our Team

Urban Habitats is driven by one simple philosophy: to create living spaces that capture the joys of life. The Joys of life take many different forms – that’s what excites us! Each new client, each new project is a blank canvas. It has to be, because each client is an individual. Urban Habitats design and build homes and extensions that work for that client, for their lifestyle, for their personality and for their future. 

Urban Habitats have been awarded by the Housing Industry Association and The Master Builders Association of South Australia for building excellence since 1997. For an insight into our award winning designs, exceptional standards of finish and outstanding levels of client satisfaction, please indulge yourself in our gallery section.
