Featured Reviews for Architects in Papakura
Furze Architecture & Design
Architects in Papakura
"Richard Furze and his team did the plans for our extensive house renovation. His plans were simple but elegant. He really understood what we wanted and solved some architectural issues that we had. He was easy to deal with, taking our opinions on board and being flexible with our wish list. He would fight for his way but was able to concede when we did not budge and was not arrogant or pushy. We would have no hesitation is using him again for future projects and have in fact recommended his services to others."

Verso Architecture + Interiors
Architects in Papakura
"I am fortunate enough to know Kylie personally, so when I asked her to help design my new build kitchen and bathrooms I knew I was in great hands. Kylie was always immediate with responding to my questions and understood from the beginning that I was budget conscious. She was patient with me and aware of the time restraints I was under with a new build. She was fast and efficient with all of her cad designs for me. Kylie had an amazing list of supplier relationships, which saved me so much time and money. She also had an exceptional intuition for understanding what my style was and wasn’t afraid to take appropriate risks if I was open to it. I would highly recommend Kylie for your next job."

Daniel Marshall Architect
Architects in Papakura
"A great team, providing inspired aesthetics and a practical approach. Clear and precise communication - we had great feedback from the building team about quality of documentation and ease of decision making. Our much-admired home has clearly influenced new builds in the area!"
- Sue Foot
9 Design Environments
Architects in Papakura
"Lisa and I engaged 9Design Environments in 2014 as architects for the renovation of our run down home in Auckland. Documentation was provided cost efficiently and on time, and during the build all site inspections undertaken on schedule. Shannon and her colleagues were friendly, approachable and professional and worked well with our builder. Most importantly, during the design stages, Shannon was open to our ideas, testing them and either giving us a reality check or finding creative and practical ways to make them work. We are very happy with the result."

Alliance Architecture Ltd
Architects in Papakura
"Trevor, Juile and their team provided the architectural drawings, build code compliance, technical expertise and great advice for my bespoke Litecrete Concrete house in Warkworth. Having commissioned Alliance Architecture Ltd once before on another great house project, I approached them with a very specific concept plan that I designed using Trimble Sketchup. They converted this into a CAD file and then created the working drawings, engineering collaboration and code compliance required for the project. Trevor and Julie saw my vision and worked closely with me to ensure they were achieving my (quite specific!) desires. Their sound technical and architectural advice ensured that I didn’t make any fundamental design flaws and saw the project through with minimal hiccups. Trevor or Julie were always available to meet me, or take phonecalls on my schedule, and would respond to my minor variation requests immediately. This during a busy period where they were working on many other projects simultaneously. Auckland Council are very fastidious with code compliance, but the build consent, inspections and Code Compliance Certificate were all achieved with minimal problem. This is credit to Trevor and Julie and their technical and local expertise. On a personal level, Trevor and Julie are very warm, approachable, friendly and professional. We shared many a story of kayak fishing (a shared interest) and they met and welcomed my family into their office and at the build site. I give the highest recommendation for anybody to use Alliance Architecture Ltd for their build or renovation project. I will definately work with them again."

Milieu: Architecture + Design
Architects in Papakura
"Kate is a fantastic architect to work with as she is dedicated to her clients. She has gone over and above in researching different design and construction options for her clients so that they can make informed choices and get value for money in their construction choices. Fastidious in the service she provides to her clients, Kate is also a talented designer and is always able to find solutions that balance practicality with delight."
- Kitty Fan
Cate Creemers Architect
Architects in Papakura
"We asked Cate to help us with the final drafts of our renovation. Particularly because we had spent months on some aspect of the original design and were still not happy. She came to our rescue providing clear, thoughtful options, that were beautifully elegant. During the build, she spoke to builders when I did not have the strength to making changes to our original draft, she was right and I am still grateful. Cate has a relaxed, professional manner backed up with amazing talent, vision and resource knowledge. I recommend her without reservation."
- Elaine Moore
Four Walls Architecture
Architects in Papakura
"I have been building houses for 20 years now and worked with many different architects and designers during this time. I have had the pleasure of completing an amazing clifftop home created by Amy and more recently in building her own home. We always found Amy a pleasure to deal with in every way. Amy provided us with exactly the information we needed, promptly when we needed it. She is a creative problem solver and works well with the many different types of people who are on site. Amy has attention to detail, is informative and obliging and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her."

Gerrad Hall Architects
Architects in Papakura
"We collaborated with Gerrad Hall Architects on the design of 4 luxury houses as our office was too stretched to complete the work without additional resources. He was fantastic to work with and displayed an easy genius which resulted in a great design outcome that was very satisfying to the client and we achieved their budget and programme. We would recommend this practice to any prospective client."
- Daniel Marshall Architect
Rain Studio architects & designers
Architects in Papakura
"Jessamine designed a back deck for me and I couldn't be more pleased with the results. This wasn't a simple deck, it had to tie into an existing deck on a level below, which is yet not ground level. And because we have an odd shaped lot, it had work within the council restrictions for setbacks from our neighbours. On top of all of that, I wanted it to look interesting and give me the space and practicality I needed. Being a designer myself, I thought I knew just what it should look like, but Jessamine brought some great new ideas to the project, which improved and enhanced my original ideas. She was professional, did all the work in a timely manner, worked through all the frustrations presented by council and gave my builder a perfect set of plans for a relatively complicated structure. I would not hesitate to recommend Jessamine for any and all projects requiring an architect. And I do so regularly! She has great ideas, a creative approach and is very easy to work with while always getting the job done as timely and on budge as possible."

If your renovation is more than a simple benchtop replacement or roof re-tiling job, then it may be time to find an architect in Papakura who can manage your project from start to finish. Depending on the architecture firm you hire, the scope can span from planning sustainable design into your renovations, to selecting furniture and even interior finishes.

How do I find the right architect for my home design project?

An architect is often the first person you hire for your project. Before taking steps to find an architect in Papakura, ask yourself what you want to achieve from your renovation or home construction. Do you want to improve the liveability and sustainability of your home, or simply expand? What style of architecture do you prefer? Once you have established your motivation, research architects that have completed similar house designs in your Papakura locale and within a comparable budget to yours.

Undergoing renovations, house extensions or building a new home entirely can be stressful. For this reason, it’s important that you and your chosen architect get along and share the same values, especially if you require an architect to help you refine your brief. To establish this rapport, you may need to meet several times with the architects on your shortlist before making a final decision on who you hire. The relationship you have with your architect is very personal, and will involve discussions of your habits, hobbies and tastes, so you want to ensure you have picked someone you feel comfortable in sharing this information with.

Most importantly, you need to trust that your architect will manage your home improvement or house design within budget, while working with site constraints, and coordinating the relationships of all parties involved in the project.

Ideally, your Papakura architect will be involved in all phases of the design process, from the initial concept to the completed construction. Your architect may be needed to select and hire subcontractors (e.g. builders, engineers and landscape architects) just as they may need to negotiate contracts with stakeholders. A good client-architect relationship will ensure they are your biggest advocate along the way during construction.

Finally, remember that the most well-known or established architect may not provide the right architectural services for your needs. It all comes down to the individual project.

Questions to ask prospective residential architects in Papakura:

  • What is your fee structure?
  • What does the cost include?
  • Do you have professional liability insurance?
  • What types of renderings (3-D, video, illustrative) will you produce?
  • What is your experience with similar projects?
  • When do you expect to start and be finished with the project?
  • What do your services include?
  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget?
  • Would you say your work has a defining style? (The architect's personal style could interfere with your vision.)
  • Will you help with hiring a project manager and subcontractors?
  • What do you estimate the cost will be?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Do you foresee any complications with this project?
