We understand that your home is your major asset, but also that it means so much more than that to you. It’s the place where friends gather and family visit. It's where the rituals of everyday life are played out. For all sorts of reasons you may be looking to realise more value from the property you already own - through adding another home, a work studio, or a guest house or by converting a building to residential. Click Architects love helping people do this in ways that are respectful to their neighbourhood and that give them the home they want - whether making a new home for themselves, or allowing them to stay in the one they love. I’m a great believer in in fill housing - in increasing the living density of our cities. We’ve all seen depressing developments with little privacy, but with care and attention new places have the potential to make positive contributions to our existing neighbourhoods. The design challenges that go along with this are what really inspire me in my work – how to bring together the aesthetic, technical, topographic and pragmatic aspects to create a great outcome.
CoLab Architecture is a small practice of two Directors, Tobin Smith and Blair Paterson, based in Christchurch New Zealand. Tobin is a creative designer with a wealth of experience in the building industry. He was a founding director of award-winning Form Architecture in 2005 and Tobin Smith design in 2010. Blair is a registered architect and graduate from the University of Auckland. He spent ten formative years in the Christchurch offices of Warren and Mahoney, followed by MAP, before co-founding CoLab in 2011. "We like architecture to be visually powerful, intellectually elegant, and above all timeless. For us, timeless design is achieved through simplicity and strength of concept - in other words, a single idea executed beautifully with a dedication to the details. We strive to create architecture that is conscious of local climate (hunker down in Winter / open up in Summer) and the environment (scale and relationship to other buildings and the natural environment)".

Bespoke is beautiful.

Created by principal Dion Gosling in 2009, Studio106 Architect specialises in high-quality residential alterations and additions. We guide our clients through concept design to project completion, encountering many moments of magic in between. A room may be comprised of timber and tile, but the subtle qualities of intimacy, scale, volume and texture, along with the unique perspective each client brings, are what make the difference. Successful projects blend design and aesthetics, sustainability and functionality. And they stick to budgets. Our small team at Studio106 helps bring these threads together. Architecture has the ability to inspire and connect in the everyday.
