Architects in Wanaka, Queenstown and beyond

Elegant, simple and energy efficient design for your house, tiny home or commercial space.

Minimal design does not mean basic, barren or small, but a thoughtful simplification of the architectural design, building consent, construction and maintenance process to minimise expense and maximise the efficient use of our resources.
We believe that every corner and curve should have a purpose and the best type of energy is harnessed from your home's natural surroundings. From new homes and renovations, through to commercial hubs, our ethos is applied to every project through thoughtful planning, logical solutions, quality materials and a constant consideration for the environment. 
Combined with international experience and a world of inspiration, we help our clients in Wanaka, Queenstown and beyond build for the future. Whether you’re designing a tiny house, family home, accommodation or commercial building, think minimal.
