Founder and Principal Architectural Designer Darren O’Neil leads this Christchurch based boutique practice, along with Senior Designer Jacinda Shirley, Senior Technical Designer Phil Ngenang, and Practice Manager Lucy Ross. We specialise and focus on high quality residential design with the purpose of providing exceptional outcomes by intentionally limiting the number of projects undertaken.

Whilst being design driven, our firm has a strong interest in the feasibility and pragmatics of construction. We listen to your needs and amalgamate your brief with our aesthetic direction, the specific site requirements, and environmental considerations. Our priority is ensuring our documentation is of the highest quality to assist your builder in creating an inspired, timeless, and elegant home.

This comprehensive approach provides our clients with the stress free, rewarding experience they deserve; and a truly superb house that will exceed all expectations.

We offer architectural services from conception to completion. We’re different because we do not apply a standard percentage like many other practices. Each project is assessed and quoted individually, our fee structure is competitive and depending on the project we can usually offer a fixed price quotation.
