Many people assume they already need a project brief before getting in touch, but this is not required. At our initial meetings, we will listen carefully to your ideas and intentions to help you establish your final brief and will provide information and guidance on what to expect. As the project progresses, we will keep you informed and make sure the whole process is fun and engaging.

We have a strong belief in the uniqueness of every project and work with integrity to carefully consider the people, the place and the purpose, resulting in something special just for you. We are committed to providing a high level of service while using our creativity to produce functional, beautiful architecture designed to inspire and give joy.

We work with clients throughout New Zealand and internationally. We frequently travel to sites both within and beyond the Canterbury region and regularly connect and meet with clients and partners - in person or online - as projects evolve.

We design a wide range of incredible spaces for clients who can see the value we bring. Our portfolio includes carefully considered alterations, unique homes, bespoke preschools, wineries, multi-unit housing and other one-off commercial buildings.

Working with an architect opens the door to a wealth of creativity, skill and specialised knowledge, resulting in amazing homes that maximise light, space, form and function. Our fees reflect that added value we bring to projects and will vary depending on project size, complexity and other design considerations. Once we have a full understanding of your plans and goals, we can discuss our role, the best solution for you and what can be achieved with your budget.

As the project proceeds you will meet the team members working alongside Craig, which may include our architectural graduates, interior designer and technical team. If needed, we can also guide you on bringing together your wider project team, including reputable builders and consultants such as structural engineers, landscape architects and quantity surveyors. We work closely with both builder and quantity surveyor as the design evolves to ensure the project is well-aligned and that we make informed decisions based on sound information.

Every project is different. While some are completed faster than others, the way we work is consistent as we set targets and work to agreed timeframes. For our whole team, details matter every step of the way with communication being the key. We are passionate about achieving an exceptional standard for you and will keep you closely informed throughout the whole journey.

Yes, of course, and we can also liaise with professional builders on your behalf to help find the right one for your project. We can observe construction on-site if you wish and be a contact between you and your builder and other contractors to ensure the whole project team is well-connected and stays on schedule.

Our design journey with you starts with a conversation. We invite you to meet with our friendly team for an initial, no obligation consultation so we can begin getting to know each other. You will have plenty of questions for us and, in turn, we want to learn about you and what you have in mind to ensure we are the right fit to add value to your project.
