Having worked in architectural design for 15 years, Mark Brown started Solutions Architecture in 2000, which comprises of an experienced team, most who have over 20 years experience in the industry. We pride ourselves on honestly and integrity in terms of delivering a project at realistic prices. We love working with clients that have open minds and let us create a unique and special project for them. At Solutions, we all have a vested interest in seeing our projects to completion and helping our clients achieve their dreams. Our clients say they like our frankness and reality in terms of what will suit their site and budget, we carefully take them through a process of design and obtain cost estimates at appropriate stages to save any wasted time. Our documentation for consent purposes is of a high standard leaving no reason for doubt . Solutions also follow through with site observation and contract administration services giving the client more confidence that we are there supporting them right through the build process as well (a common comment from clients is “I’m so glad we had you on board for the build, there was so much we didn’t realise or understand, you supported us and made the project as smooth as possible, we would do it again but only if you were there for the build”) We work primarily in Auckland but have completed projects in the far north as well as in the south island. Solutions do not prescribe to a particular vernacular of architecture but prefer to fit the architecture to the clients brief and the site, having completed ultra-modern homes, villa replicas and alteration projects as well as specialist commercial projects from Integrated Medical Centres to Aged Care and Dementia Care facilities, Beach houses to Multi-Unit developments.

We engaged the services of Mark Brown, Solutions Architecture for the design and build of Waiuku Health + Integrated Health Centre in Waiuku 2007 - 2010, Approximate cost NZ$5 million. Mark was always highly professional, listened to our requirements, gave good advice, assisted with the engagement of other appropriate professionals e.g Interior designer, Traffic and structural engineers and delivered high quality work on time. He was available when required and continued to work closely with us throughout the project and since when we have had need to enquire on matters e.g. recent enquiry regarding the Fire Engineer's report regarding building requirements. I would have no hesitation with engaging Mark's services in the future and would highly recommend Solution's Architecture for projects of this magnitude.

Mark Brown was our architect that designed our home 21 years ago. We had used Mark on occasions to do small jobs in that time but when it came to our very large reclad and alteration we never hesitated in using Mark from Solutions Architecture. He had to take over the job of project manger half way through due to our builder letting us down. He went beyond any expectations. He not only got the job finished but also spent hours on getting our CCC from the Council. He is such a pleasure to work with and our home is a result of his work. I cant thank him enough.

We have now done 3 projects with Mark and his team - 2 renovations and 1 new build. in each case we have been delighted with the result. In addition to the design Mark remained actively involved in our new build project. Mark's ideas, knowledge and suggestions have invaluable and have helped bridge the gap that sometimes occurs between the wishlist and practicality. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mark and Solutions Architecture.

Loved the service and advice we got from Solutions right from the start. Mark went out of his way to make sure everything was in place and we knew exactly when things were taking place. There were parts of the planning stage where we had to compromise, Mark was always able to offer a great solution which made us get everything that we wanted. Would love to do another renovation and would not hesitate in using Solutions Architecture.

Working with your architect is one of the most important roles in building, if you don't have the same vision it wont work. Working with Mark Brown from Solutions Architecture I found someone who travelled the journey with me from start to finish. This involved the sketches, to concept plans to full working drawings. Marks contacts and knowledge steered me through this maze of confusion and working with all the trades to ensure the final outcome was delivered beyond expectation. Mark was creative with his ideas and when I perhaps didn't understand them so well was patient in walking me through and drawing a visual so it was clear for me before I went ahead. I have recommended him and would not hesitate in using his services again. The experience was so good I think I would be only a handful of people who would do it again. Mark was definitely my advocate when it came to dealing with other trades as well he had a great sense of pride in the end result and it paid off in spades. He understood how I worked and made sure I was informed constantly and no surprises. I would definitely say Mark was my right arm in this project right from the get go!! Can highly recommend Mark Brown and the team at Solutions Architecture.
