Inspiration for this design comes from a simple leaf. From there the seed
was planted and the project grew organically.
The natural theme has been continued inside with the use of colours, textures and indoor planting. Each space is designed to create its own Individualised customer experience.
The precast concrete is imprinted with a natural grass pattern, which has been continued onto the glass façade, providing filtered light from the high level windows into the passageways. LED lights have been installed to enable the client to display various colours commemorating events such as Breast Cancer Awareness Week. Cedar weatherboards add texture and warmth. Extensive planting and landscaping make the exterior look inviting from the street.
Energy efficiency has been well considered in all aspects of construction including above code insulation, double glazing, LED lighting and highly efficient HVAC systems with heat recovery.
This state-of-the-art building will house various medical professionals for years to come. With positive response from the community and a grand street presence, what started as a brief has grown into a landmark.
Humphries Construction had seen a vast amount of growth in their old premises, and needed to accommodate that and allow for future growth in their new premises.
Open plan areas can have their drawbacks when it comes to noise and privacy. Instead of a straight open space, there was an idea to create separate “nooks” . Careful consideration on how the office would evolve was needed when designing these spaces. The areas needed to work cohesively for collaborative get-togethers, but also separately for confidential discussions and private meetings, furthermore informal spaces to break out were also a requirement.
Magnificent views and the rugged natural landscape of Waitarere Beach form the backdrop and forefront of our clients’ dream kiwi hideaway.
Designed to maximize the natural beauty of the surrounds, while providing shelter from the wind and harsh Waitarere weather, the client’s brief was that the property had to be comfortable, welcoming, and ambient, without feeling like a show home. Low maintenance finishes and security were paramount. Built on a sand dune, the site slopes up to the now-formed terraced driveway, creating anticipation to the beauty of the home itself.

The design allows fluidity between all departments, improving work efficiency.
Future proofing and growth within the space was also taken into account with multi-use spaces and structural design to allow for any expansion in the future, giving Cervus Equipment a home for many years to come.
A truly magnificent transformation of a site steeped in history. The Clock Tower continues to stand tall making it a lasting landmark in Feilding.
This stylish but unassuming H-Shaped home is set in rural Manawatu.
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, makes this home unique, one that stands out from others.
