about us

Better Homes has provided its clients thoughtful, thorough and responsive solutions to a wide range of architectural challenges.

Established in 1991, we started out in Patras and quickly spread out to the island of Kefalonia. From a small family design + construction company we have grown into a multi-disciplinary firm with select business associates, including Architects, Engineers, Real-estate specialists, interior designers, as well as a wide network of specialised partners.

our method

We are committed to upholding our reputation for exceptionally high standards. Our long experience combined with our extensive knowledge of the property market enables us to identify the most desirable locations.

Bringing our experience from the USA and the UK, we have completed many projects in Kefalonia and across the bay, in Patra and the surrounding areas, ranging in scale from small additions to large estates.

The team is also rapidly gaining a "Green" edge in the local market with their ever-growing environmental building design projects in development, including ecoHomes and Photovoltaic power stations and other bioclimatic systems.

Design + Construction

We design and construct buildings made of Concrete, Steel and Timber. Our portfolio includes Luxury villas, Hotels, holiday homes and commercial projects with an emphasis on modern architectural design and construction technique, though respecting traditional building methods through Restorations, Archaeological + Memorial space design, and even Greek Orthodox Churches.

Our knowledge of the property market has gained us a great reputation via Real Estate Sales as well as successfully dealing with property ownership legal issues. The team is rapidly gaining a "Green" edge in the local market with their ever-growing environmental building design projects including ecoHomes and Photovoltaic power stations.

Our goal is not only to design beautiful structures, but also sustainable ones that withstand the hand of time and any possible danger they may encouter.
