Evoke Living Homes is going beyond the average modular home builder, with innovative design and quality, showcasing the clever construction and architectural flexibility for which Evoke is renowned. 


In 2021 we completed a two-storey holiday home for our clients Jane & Allan in the beautiful Bremer Bay, in Western Australia's Great Southern region.


Boasting superior quality, stunning upgrades, and style, this two-storey modular home provided a turning point for both our company and the WA modular industry, in innovative design.


The design then became a multiple HIA award winner, being announced the winner of the following categories at the 2021 HIA Regional Western Australia Housing Awards:

  • 2021 HIA Great Southern Region - Modular and Prefabricated Housing
  • 2021 HIA Great Southern Region - Innovation in Lightweight Housing

Western Australia's First Two-Storey Modular Home

As this was our first double-storey home, the project required a substantial amount of research and development to come up with the best method of building.

It was a challenging build for the crew but provided a great experience and a huge learning curve. Being a double-storey structure, building the top module on a steel frame chassis was required, with the challenge being how to create the most structurally sound module while keeping it to a reasonable weight for craning.

It was a true collaboration that included the directors and managers within Evoke Living Homes, as well as engineers, designers, and crane experts. "This project has really provided a massive turning point for not only us but for the WA modular home industry" -Russell Draffin, Managing Director of Evoke Living Homes.


The Bremer Bay project 

The HIA award-winning Bremer Bay residence was a milestone in modular construction, setting records in Western Australia by becoming one of the first two-storey modular residential homes. It was a challenging build for the crew but provided a great experience in different areas of the build. 

With their dream of a holiday home in mind, the new owners' brief was simple – the house needed to be long-lasting, stylish, and full of the elements that make a family home enjoyable.

This modular home is truly unique and the open-plan design appeals to anyone who is looking to make their home special.
