Lares (pronounced Lah-rez) is the ancient Roman god of the household

We thought the name appropriate, given our role is to look after yourself and your family respectfully and carefully throughout the process of designing and building your new home.

Created by a passionate group of industry leading professionals, Lares Homes is dedicated to delivering the best full service approach to home building.

Our vision at Lares is to be progressive by doing things differently.

At Lares we like to bring design vision and architectural perspective to every detail, creating individual homes to suit the most exacting requirements.

Everything we do is inspired by design, shaped by a full understanding of our clients’ needs, their ideas and the bigger picture of their lives.

We’re open, down-to-earth people who will work closely with you to ensure the overall plan, detail and expectation is delivered.

We have the flexibility to create work that is not only of the highest quality, but is specifically tailored to your personal requirements.

The Lares team has vast experience designing and building in all areas of Adelaide, whether that be a hills and country estate, a coastal retreat or an inner suburban site with specialised council requirements. Our mission is to make great design accessible, creating unique homes of real style and enduring value.


The Lares Homes Specification is comprehensive and includes all of your requirements, documented for easy understanding. The materials and fittings we select are always designed focused but, importantly, also highly functional.

We choose only trusted brands to partner with such as Miele, Villeroy & Boch, Grohe and Caesarstone.

All of our homes are modelled with leading edge digital technology. This method not only allows you to visually experience your project before it is built, but allows us to streamline the process from design to construction so that the project you see is the project you get.

“With over two and a half decades building some of Adelaide’s most prestigious homes I’ve gathered a team of professional tradespeople who are passionate about their craft and proud of every task they complete.

Our passion, together with our team of tradespeople, is turning a great classic or contemporary design into a tangible, beautiful home that our customer can be proud to own and live in.”

Paul Gelios, Construction

“For me, home design has always been about people. I feel fortunate to have the opportunity and privilege to work with clients and help them create that unique expression of their own personality. The best outcomes in my experience always come as the result of a strong collaboration between myself and the client."

Eric Pagnozzi, Design

“The home building industry is quite unique. The nature of designing and constructing a home involves such a lot of detail that the relationship between a client and builder is over many, many months – even years. This relationship is so important, and something we value above all else in our business.”

Steve Sinclair, Marketing

“My role at Lares is ensuring the smooth transition of each home through the various phases from council to completion. Meeting these important critical dates allows us to provide you with an agreed site start date and also a guaranteed completion time. In my experience this helps every client in planning the transition to their new home.”
