History of the Family Business
A solid foundation and a principled reputation for quality, honesty, craftsmanship and intelligent design. This has been the motto of Lupi Luxury Homes since Antonio Lupi started the company in 1970.
The Lupi Difference
Our family reputation rests on our passion for superior customer service, open communication with our clients throughout the sales and building process, and on ensuring the uncompromised quality of the home we build, from the foundation to the roof.
The focus, approach and commitment to excellence and integrity hasn't changed with the second generation of the Lupi family. President Nick and General Manager Emilio are strongly committed to ensuring that the Lupi name remains synonymous with old-world quality, craftsmanship and integrity in custom home building. Today our onsite crew is strongly influenced by Nick and Emilio’s late older brother Luciano who oversaw the company's quality control department. Lou’s commitment to customer service continues to inspire the team to treat our clients homes as if they were their own.
We have a passion for superior customer service. A focus on creative, innovative designs. An obsession with precise fit and finish. A need to exceed your expectations.
Nick Lupi President
As a young boy, Nick was captivated by homes, working on the job site with his father Antonio as soon as he could lift a shovel. Nick went on to pursue a degree in business receiving his BComm. from the University of Calgary. From slinging forms and swinging hammers to creating plot plans and signing contracts Nick is well versed in all facets of homebuilding.
Sticking to his Italian roots Nick is a wine connoisseur, as well as a super sports fan. You’ll catch him watching Formula One, Football, Golf and any other sport that is televised. He enjoys travelling, some may even call him a snowbird, but above all spending time with his family is the most important.
Emilio Lupi General Manager
Being the youngest of the Lupi boys Emilio was surrounded by home building his whole life. As a boy he would always spend time on the job sites sweeping, or cribbing and framing with his brothers, so it was only fitting that his first vehicle was a pickup truck. Emilio oversees many aspects of the company, he’s the go-to guy for all things construction-related.
Emilio enjoys the simple things in life like curling in the winter months, spending summers on the B.C. coast and bike riding. He enjoys spending his free time with his wife, three delightful daughters and their three cute cats.

Vision & Design
Building a luxury home is much like building a solid reputation: it takes time, consummate skill, decades of experience, creative ingenuity, and an unwavering commitment to excellence. It also takes a team of dedicated professionals that share our vision and commitment to quality and client care. At Lupi, the decision to build homes over and above our usual exceedingly high standards means you truly are buying a luxury home. Your home is your dream. We understand that, and we want to build that dream with you.
Distinctly Lupi Luxury
There are many elements involved in building a luxury home that make them distinctively Lupi Luxury. From the superior construction, meticulous framing and premium lumber, industry best windows and doors, to the elegant interiors that have the inimitable Lupi touch. Impressive kitchens and spa-like ensuites with elegant cabinets and stunning quartz and granite countertops, freestanding tubs, high ceilings and custom finish carpentry throughout are all the luxuries you can expect to see when building with Lupi Luxury Homes.
Our design process eliminates the frustration of dealing with stock plans and the inflexible budgeting with specific plan packages. We work with you to translate your vision, your dreams and goals into a workable plan that fits your budget and most importantly, exceeds your expectations. It's important to note that in a Lupi Luxury Home, there is no "wasted space". We ensure that every square foot of the home is utilized, if not immediately then for planned-for future development. It's something that we as homeowners feel is important and we strive to achieve that for every home we build.
We were there, before it was trendy.
It is our goal to utilize the most efficient products and services coupled with ease of use and elegance.
