Archival Designs Awards and Recognition

In 1994’s highly competitive building market, JoAnne Loftus was recognized as “Builder of the Year” by the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association. JoAnne has also accumulated numerous other national and regional awards for her distinctive, practical yet stylish home designs. Over the course of his brief, but prolific career, David Loftus — and Archival Designs — garnered numerous national awards, many for luxury home designs.

Building Codes

Our plans are designed to specifications published by the International Residential Code (IRC) and will meet or exceed the national building standards. Due to building codes and requirements changing and varying from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, Archival Designs, Inc. cannot warrant compliance with any specific code or regulation. Modifications may be necessary to meet regional building codes for flood plains, snow loading, hurricane, and earthquake. Additionally, some states may require an architect or engineer seal.

Due to differences in state, county, and municipality requirements for local codes, building regulations, and zoning requirements we strongly recommend you consult your local licensed builder, architect, or engineer to review the plans before construction begins. Archival Designs, Inc. is not responsible for the advice or assistance received by builder, architect, or engineer. The owner and contractor assume full responsibility to meet all local building codes.

These sketched hand drawings are complete with front, rear and side elevations, as well as first and second floor plans.

This phase begins after you are delighted with all of the conceptual designs. Our team of Registered Architects, Designers and Draftsmen will create computer computer drafted drawings. Your home comes to life and takes on a personality. These scaled computer drafted drawings are designed so you can picture yourself living in a space that makes you feel warm and welcomed.

Step Three – Final Construction Drawings

We can determine a price schedule for your new home after a brief conversation with our custom design manager. Archival Designs, Inc. breaks down the three phases into separate costs. You pay up-front for each phase and receive all completed work before moving forward to the next phase. This gives you complete control of your project!

It is now proudly comprised of Mark Saunders Luxury Homes, Coastal Construction, Coastal Development & Realty, Coastal Vacation Resorts, The Mortgage Company, five championship golf courses, and an impressive class of coastal communities, including Ocean Ridge Plantation, Rivers Edge Golf Club & Plantation, SeaScape at Holden Plantation, and Seawatch at Sunset Harbor.

Every detail is important to us because it’s important to you.

Our Process

Designing and building your dream home with Mark Saunders Luxury Homes is an exciting, fun, and hands-on experience. We build a relationship of mutual trust and communication before we build your home. Over the past nearly 30 years, we’ve developed a process that ensures your custom home captures every aspect of your lifestyle and compliments the natural beauty of your homesite and community. We combine our vision of unique and timeless architecture with your dreams and lifestyle.

Whether your needs require an accelerated build or a relaxed multi-year process, we have the experience and expertise to accommodate your situation and to adjust the timeline for design and construction.

Design Consultation

Understanding your lifestyle and needs is the most important aspect of developing a home design. During the design consultation your Custom Home Consultant will listen carefully to your list of wishes for your new home. We’ll guide you through every decision and option to ensure your home is a unique reflection of you.

Homesite Evaluation

Equally important to the Design Consultation is the Homesite Evaluation. Before we put pencil to paper we visit your homesite to analyze every detail, including the contour of your homesite, location of heritage trees and prevailing breezes. Your home will compliment the unique characteristics of your homesite.

Conceptual Design

After developing your design wish list and evaluating your homesite, we provide you with a complimentary conceptual design for your home, which includes sketches of your floor plan and front elevation expertly prepared by our professional architect.

Design Revision

Designing your home is an interactive and iterative process. We encourage you to provide feedback about your design. With your continued participation we work together until you are completely satisfied with your home design.


Once your home design captures your dream we provide a competitive, all-inclusive price to build your home. You will not be surprised by hidden extras or add-ons since our proposal includes every cost associated with building your home to your specifications.

Building Agreement

Our building agreement outlines your specifications, our agreed upon price and pay schedule, our responsibilities, construction duration and our Mark of Excellence Guarantee. The building agreement will give you confidence that your home will be delivered on time to your satisfaction.

Plan Review

Prior to starting construction, we sit down with you and very carefully review your home plans. We finalize exterior color selections and outline a rough construction schedule. At this time you will also be introduced to your Project Manager who will guide you through the actual construction of your home and keep you informed every step of the way.

Home Construction

Home construction takes 6-8 months, depending on the size and complexity of your home. Using only time tested construction methods and professional trades people, we follow a strict construction process that ensures no detail of your home is overlooked and unsurpassed quality.

Customer Care

Our relationship doesn’t end when we present you with the keys to your home. Our unwavering commitment to ensuring your complete satisfaction continues after you walk through the front door and begin enjoying your home.

Azure Luxury Homes

About Azure

Azure Luxury Homes is a fresh and innovative building company based in Perth and founded in February 2011 by a team of highly experienced registered builders with a focus on professionalism, attention to detail and client satisfaction all with a personalized service.


Directors Rob Del Paggio and Steve Di Fulvio are both Registered Builders with decades of professional experience in bringing luxury home designs to life.


At Azure Luxury Homes, we believe that the best luxury home builds are born out of collaborative relationships. Rob and Steve work with you throughout your design and build process, ensuring that you’re always looped in and consulted on your luxury home design. As established luxury builders in Perth, we keep our lines of communication clear and open to craft industry-leading homes to suit your needs.


As dedicated boutique builders in Perth, crafting bespoke luxury homes is in our blood. By choosing Azure Luxury Homes, you’re opting for a dedicated team committed to bringing your dream to life. Get started on transforming your dream home into a reality with expert luxury home design and building services.



The initial stage is where your requirements are reviewed with your design brief and budget being established. This is a crucial part of the process where our design team will listen to your family and lifestyle needs to really understand your ‘vision’.


Our design team, having prepared a design concept based on the initial appraisal, will present you with a structured floor layout, elevations and 3D perspectives (computer images that enable you to visualize the finished product), and a detailed cost estimate.


Plans are then prepared for lodgement into council with full working drawings (inclusive of engineers details) as required by the relevant department. Contract documentation is finalized which specifies the timelines of construction and payment milestones.


Once this documentation has been finalized and a building permit has been approved through the council, final contracts are signed and executed by all parties.


The construction team is then mobilized and trades will commence site works and construction of your home.


Azure Luxury Homes is also able to provide a competitive price on tendered projects. Our experienced team can manage the tender process and have experience in lodging proposals to the quality expected by architects and design teams.
