Featured Reviews for Architects in Upper Shotover
Rafe Maclean Architects
Architects in Upper Shotover
"Rafe is thorough, exceptionally detailed, pragmatic and responsive. He was exceptionally easy to work with on a particularly difficult and unique Passive House project not only in an architectural capacity but also whilst wearing his contract management hat. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend using Rafe's services again, in fact we already are using him again on our next Passive House project."

Wyatt & Gray Architects Ltd
Architects in Upper Shotover
"We started with Mark Gray mid 2015, and asked him for a house design to incorporate certain elements we had seen previously in other designs. As a holiday home, we wanted a certain "feel" to the main Lounge/Dining area, with exposed timber finishes on floor and ceiling. We ended up with something we wouldn't change a thing on. Mark nailed it. We found Mark very easy to work with, and while he is a fairly quiet and patient person (he had to be), he certainly spoke up if he felt something wasn't what he felt would work. Would we use Mark again, absolutely. Along the way we had dinner a couple of times, met his wife and a son, and they are decent people, which reflects in Mark's passion to see you get what you want, even with his subtle prodding along the way to get some of what he wants too."

Hyndman Taylor Architects
Architects in Upper Shotover

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 Upper Shotover 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 Upper Shotover, 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 Upper Shotover 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 Upper Shotover 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.

  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget?
