Dean Humphrey is the Owner and Director of Humphrey Homes. His passion for architecture
and building started when he built his first home at the age of 20 in Kalgoorlie.
He established Humphrey Homes in 1999 and rebranded it in 2012 to be both a registered
builder and architectural practice. Under his leadership the company has delivered many
inspired homes which have won repeated praise from clients and industry bodies.
He travels overseas once a year to seek inspiration and design cues from new and emerging architecture and how that can be applied locally.
His involvement with your home is very hands on: regular office and on-site meetings, plus constant emails and phonecalls, and his measure of success is very simple: a glass of champagne with you when you move in.
"So far, it's been a 100% success rate," he says.
Dean is chair of the Perth HIA Technical Services Committee and represents Western Australia on the National Technical Services Committee, plus he sits on the HIA Regional Executive Committee. He lives in Cottesloe with his wife and three children and is actively involved in the local community. He has been a member of the North Cott Surf Club since the early 2000s, and starts most mornings there at 5.30am in the water and the gym. If you don't see him there, you'll catch him at Little Sup grabbing a flat white on the way to the office or to site.
Helen's passion for striking architecture is evident the moment you meet her and is why she leads the Humphrey Homes design team.
She has worked in residential architecture for 25 years, having focused on high-end single residential for most of that time.
She spent a large part of her career with Philippa Mowbray Architects and also successfully ran her own architectural business, designing homes in the western suburbs.
"My passion and what inspires me most is the delight and excitement on clients faces as we work together. I live and breathe architecture, design and fashion - anything to satiate and stimulate me visually - and being involved with clients homes and their lives on such a personal level is pretty special."
Helen is a member of the Architects Board of Western Australia and for the past decade has assisted the Board by examining and qualifying those new to the field. She holds a Bachelor of Architecture with honours from Curtin University.
Outside of work, she is an active mum to her eight year old son and indulges in our coastal lifestyle. Most weekends are spent outdoors and often at the Trigg Island Surf Club, where she is a member.
Another member of our creative team, Joie brings global experience to the Humphrey Homes team. After graduating with a Bachelor Degree in English and Design in 2000, Joie went on to travel the world and work overseas, Sydney, London & South Korea.
Once returning, she pursued her love of fine art managing a prominent art gallery in Subiaco
for a number of years. She then moved into styling and completed her studies in Interior Design.
Joie has worked in residential interior design since and has a wealth of construction knowledge to assist her design skills.
