Featured Reviews for Architects in Wellington
Wright & Gray: Architects Ltd.
Architects in Wellington
"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."
- Debra DeLorenzo Interiors One Ranfurly Ltd
Unit7 Architects
Architects in Wellington
"Sally undertook the conceptual design for the major renovation and extension of our Brisbane post-war bungalow. She has adeptly managed to retain elements of our home’s mid 20th-century charm yet decisively bring it into the 21st century. She has carefully listened to and met all of our requirements. Sally is an exceptionally talented architect with a wicked sense of humour, which has made the whole design process a lot of fun. We highly recommend her."
- Alannah Gunter
Holmes Architecture
Architects in Wellington
"We had designed our first new home ourselves, but second time around it wasn’t so easy. We had a basic concept in mind, but couldn’t bring it all together and “make it fit”. We chose Mike for two reasons, firstly he’d been recommended by a friend to check him out and we loved the look of his previous designs, and secondly because he’d completed a builder’s apprenticeship. It was important to us that our architect also had practical building knowledge. Mike came back to us with a design that incorporated all the things that we had asked for, but also added some quirky features and design elements that we would never have come up with on our own. He visited us on site, and was always respectful of our preferences and worked hard to pull the whole design together. We would definitely recommend him to others who are looking for a professional, considerate, and innovative architect."
- Caroline Nyboer
Concept Designs Architecture
Architects in Wellington
"Stefan did an amazing job designing the reno for our Kitchen and Lounge area. The package he provided was perfect for bringing to builders for quotes and gave us some great ideas."
- Blaise St-Laurent
Spacecraft Architects
Architects in Wellington
"Tim and Caro designed for us the exact house that we wanted, with the addition of a few key elements we didn't know we wanted until we had them. They are considerate, communicative, expect excellence of themselves, without a hint of arrogance. I would, and often do, recommend Spacecraft whenever I have the chance."
- Ben King
Click Architects Ltd
Architects in Wellington
"My husband and I hired Carolyn Walker of Click Architects Ltd to provide architectural services and advice for our house renovation. She assisted us through the whole process from concept designs up to the completion of the project. I found her extremely professional, helpful and her advice timely and accurate. We worked well together and she helped create a renovation that exceeded our hopes and expectations. I would definitely recommend her to potential clients."

First Light Studio
Architects in Wellington
"Calm, spacious, design incorporation is relaxing feeling of character. I am constantly looking for ideas, for my future home addition, can't afford much as a single parent so small spaces with large feeling of the outside inside helps the feeling of being locked in all the time..(I live in a home with no character but functions as a shelter."

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 Wellington 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 Wellington, 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 Wellington 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 Wellington 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 Wellington:


  • 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?
