    About Us


Why Build with Us?

Designed for Tropical Living


Koru’s new home designs were born out of a love for the iconic charm and character of the traditional Queenslander-style homes found in Tropical North Queensland.

Our designs are contemporary and sophisticated but draw on the timeless characteristics and design features of these traditional homes. They are a starting point for your dream home and can be customised to suit your individuality and lifestyle.

Koru homes are inspired by our tropical climate and relaxed way of living and our designs feature generous ceiling heights to create lighter, more open spaces and seamless connections between the indoors and outdoors.

Interior Design & Style


Whether you are building a brand new Koru home or renovating your current home with us, you can take advantage of our Interior Design & Style team’s expertise and creativity.

Our Interior Design & Style team will guide you through your colour selections (including fixtures, fittings, paint colours and flooring selections) and offer advice on furniture and styling that will help make your home uniquely yours.

Our experienced and passionate team will work closely with you to create a high-end luxury home that reflects your individuality and vision for your dream home. They will remove the stress and simplify what can otherwise be an overwhelming part of the home building and renovation process.


Quality Inclusions


Koru’s point of difference is both the number and quality of standard inclusions in our new home designs. These inclusions have been chosen by our Interior Design & Style team for functionality, quality, performance and aesthetic appeal to ensure that your home is not only beautiful, but is better to live in.

Our high quality inclusions and thoughtful design features position our homes in the market in the gap between typical project homes and fully bespoke architectural homes.

Flexibility to Customise


Cairns has a hugely varied landscape, so it stands to reason that there will be many blocks of land that simply don't suit a standard house design. Koru take the time to understand how you and your family want to live in your home and will work with you to shape and customise your home design to best fit your block, your lifestyle and your needs.

Building individually designed homes on blocks of all shapes and sizes is what we do.
