Returning to Adelaide in 2014 with a growing passion for old-world and contemporary architecture, Craig launched Craig Linke Bespoke Building. The company takes on a select number of projects each year, and focuses on high-end and luxury builds that showcase outstanding craftsmanship that is a cut above the rest.
