Daniel Marshall Architect
Architects
16 January 2013
“Daniel is a visionary. Each of his buildings has it's own unique identity. He positioned our property perfectly on the existing piece of land and kept to our brief that the house appear to meld into its surroundings and yet be on a grand scale. One of our key requests was for a large garage to accommodate our cars, but we didn't want a face a large bank of garage doors as we drove into our home. Our architect designed the doors around a courtyard, cleverly disguising them so that they are seemingly part of a wall. He also listened to our requests and accommodated them where he could within the restrictions of our land and height to boundary. He was able to convince us that where the ceilings were not as high on the top floor as we originally wanted them to be, this would not be a problem as he had created a "floating" roof. He also helped us with the interior decoration of the home, providing suggestions on colours of walls and flooring. He worked with me on an idea I had for a double height bookshelf, which has become a focal point in the lounge. He even "created" a wonderful wax paneled wall in the dining room that is a unique work of art. There were some miscommunications, mainly centered around the kitchen and the wardrobes that I had very specific ideas about. If I were to start all over again, I would probably consider using a kitchen designer to work with me on my requirements. At the end of the day, however, I am happy with the end result, just not quite the trauma of getting there. The result is a home that fulfills all our needs and more, and is a pleasure to live in and I would highly recommend this firm and it's architects to anyone.”

“I have worked personally with both Chris and Beth on a number of projects over the last few years. As a Structural Engineer, I prefer to work with the likes of Chaney & Norman Architects as they are engaging and collaborative when it comes to structural requirements, which allows us to discuss and integrate efficiencies into the structural design where possible, while maintaining the vision for their project/client. This allows us to create cost savings for the clients, as well as time savings for contractors on site.”
PAUA Architects Ltd

“Our house was finished 10 years ago, what I remember was that Geoff Lentz and I had a lot of laughs in the design process and still enjoy catching up from time to time. I showed him pictures of what we wanted and he came up with a stunner. I would change things now (not a lot), but one has to live in the house to learn that.”

“I have worked with John on an extensive home renovation. He is a great architect to work with and I am pleased to being doing another project with him. He has a wonderful collaborative and inclusive approach, which means the clients and professionals working on the project all feel valued.”
Arcline Architecture
Architects
28 June 2016
“I worked with Arcline Architecture as their interior designer for 12 large luxury holiday accommodation houses based in Karikari Peninsula for Carrington Estate. Having just recently graduated from Unitec, and with only a few interior design projects undertaken by me, the opportunity to work with Arcline on such a large project was daunting but exciting. Working with Alan Simpkin, owner and architect at Arcline, provided me with valuable hands-on experience and knowledge in so many aspects of interior design and project management, that is difficult to achieve on smaller projects. Alan was generous in sharing with me his in-depth knowledge of the building and design industry which was invaluable during the design process. He set up processes and systems that allowed for ease of communication between stakeholders, thus ensuring a robust communication flow that saw this large scale development project run as smoothly as possible and ensuring budgets and timeframes were met. Alan and his team at Arcline Architecture are professional, passionate about design and a pleasure to work with. As Architect and Project Manager, Alan provided excellent support and guidance - sharing ideas and his architectural intent on the 12 houses with ease, however still allowing the interior designer autonomy to design within the guidelines of the brief of each house type - 6 themes (and 12 houses) in total. Arcline's high level of knowledge, skill and design expertise, together with the ability to trust that other design professionals will act in the best interests of the client and project, was a huge contributing factor to the success of this large scale project.”

“Rebecca Walker designed and drafted plans for the recent renovation of our 1920's bungalow. We added 50sq m kitchen/dining/living and reconfigured the existing house to add a new bedroom and ensuite. We are wrapped with the result. Rebecca drafted the plans and submitted them to council for consent, she assisted throughout the build and helped with the interior design when complete. I couldn't recommend her higher. Very pleasant to deal with, and able to offer practical solutions to the challenges of renovating older homes.”
Alliance Architecture Ltd
Architects
27 March 2018
“We have recently completed our house renovations. From our first consultation on site, Alliance Architecture came up with exactly what we had in mind. From the initial drawings, to dealing with the council and their requirements; and the professionalism and their ability to meet deadlines was unsurpassed. And in our case they went beyond their scope of work, for without their skill factor and foresight, we don't think our renovations would have been completed to what we have now. We would be most happy to elaborate if so required.”
Four Walls Architecture
Architects
21 July 2015
“Four Walls Architecture designed a large contemporary home for us on a site situated in Westmere, Auckland. They carried out the conceptual design work, assisted with the resource consent application and completed the detailed design and building consent application. Our brief was quite specific in regards to the general look we were trying to achieve, the size and layout of the home, the use of low maintenance materials and a high degree of energy efficiency. The design process was a very pleasant experience and Four Walls was always open to discussing any ideas or opinions we had and incorporating them into the design accordingly. The home is currently being built and it is great seeing how the ideas are being transformed from plans and computer models to a physical form. The way it is turning out has exceeded our expectations in a number of ways and it is truly turning out to be our dream home! Four Walls has continued to be very helpful and provide assistance to both us and the builder in a timely manner during the building process. I have already recommended them to another family member who is using them for an extensive renovation in Herne Bay and would certainly not hesitate recommending them to anyone else, or to use them again.”
MCAS - Max Capocaccia Architecture Studio
Architects
27 November 2017
“When it came to building our own house, Max and his team came on board to help put the finishing touches on the design and detail up our plans. They were very accommodating, considering that, as clients who work in the industry, we were very much a part of the process. Max helped to push some aspects of the design architecturally, and we are really happy with the end result. They were professional but still approachable and friendly to deal with. MCAS are passionate about sustainable design, which is very important to us too, so they were a great fit for us and our project.”
Young Architects
Architects
28 August 2017
“I have never seen anyone get more excited about a new building than the people of Redcliffs. I could barely get any work done! The story starts, as so many others in Christchurch, with earthquakes and demolition. The team at Young Architects has close ties to the neighbourhood, and was involved in the rebuild of the community library from the very beginning. They took up the challenge of designing an inviting public meeting space that reflects its community. From the red colour of the building to the gable construction reminiscent of the spines on a bookshelf, the library is a space Redcliffs is very proud of, as I soon learned. Since I happen to live down the road, I did more than my usual share of bullying the client into involving me. I knew the semi-translucent gable would be perfect for blue hour photography once finished. I got really excited picturing the final images in my mind's eye. When Greg Young and I finally toured the library, the degree of pride in the community was almost overwhelming. People stopped us repeatedly in the streets to tell their library stories, express how proud they are, and what a good guy Greg is. There were even a few hugs. While I was shooting the building a little while later, people repeatedly told me how happy they were with their new library. It was touching to see how connected everyone felt with this space. I hope the images will do the project justice.”
