‘From Concept to Completion…Turning Dreams into Reality, that’s us’


Beach Side Retreat

Situated on the rugged coastline of Shoal Beach in the Hawkes Bay, this beach side retreat oozes seclusion and tranquillity.

Originally built in three separate sections in the Manawatu then transported over to the East Coast where now the unique exterior cladding blends perfectly into the unassuming surrounds where it will become better with age as time goes by.

As planned, each of the sections command independence but work beautifully in unity with each other.  The design offers expansive views while giving many options whether just chilling out or entertaining.

Humphries Construction, Palmerston North

Part of the brief for this Award Winning building was to show case the skill and diversity within the building industry, while using the various components of carpentry and concrete.

The office consists of a large open plan, multi-use office space, giving careful consideration to natural light and ventilation.   The clever design displays a range of quality craftsmanship and the diversity of what the company can do.

Consideration was given to the limitations open plan areas can pose, so instead of a straight open space, we designed separate ‘nook’ areas that  would work well  for collaborative get-together’s, informal break outs, as well as offering privacy for confidential discussion and private meetings.

Skermans Line, Palmerston North

This stylish but unassuming H-Shaped home is set in rural Manawatu.

The concept was taken from the English style stone farmhouses where the design principals are simplistic and symmetrical.

Large Hinuera stone cladding helps to retain the traditional character and to ground the structure to the landscape complementing the rural surrounds that this home overlooks.

The open plan living is both warm and welcoming and offers distinct assigned areas that are in keeping with the straight line exterior.

The earthy neutral colours of the interior walls along with the white painted ceiling and beams give the illusion of depth to the room making it feel immense.

All in all the simplistic use of materials, appliances, fixtures and furnishings, even right down to the kitchen units, make this home unique and stand out from others.
