As a freelance architect, I have been lucky enough to work on a wide range of projects and collaborate with a wide range of great clients over the years, many of whom are highly respected and talented architects themselves.  Working with some of the best in the business on challenging projects is hard to beat for experience, although every client brings new and stimulating challenges and insights, and I am very grateful to them all!

In my experience using a good architect like yourself will result in a higher sale price. This is because of the higher quality of the design within the same budget. They bring creative ways to maximise space and get the most out of your home, whether it be a renovation, extension or a new build. Using an architect will avoid design problems that could become extremely costly. 

We were recommended to Paul by a friend from Christchurch who collaborated on our project. The attention to detail that Paul imposed on our house plans created a result that had virtually no changes from a demanding council. In a nutshell, his excellent work speaks for itself.

Realising good architecture is a collaborative process and to have Paul on your team is a real asset. He has a comprehensive grasp of all facets – a thorough understanding of planning, consent processes, building techniques and materials, engineering detailing and specifications, culminating in beautifully detailed drawings. Paul is very easy to work with and communicates well with myself, clients, engineer, builder, and obviously has a good eye for design.

Sue and I would like to thank you very much for your wonderful design of our home and boatshed development at Milton Bay in the Marlborough Sounds. Your ideas of a modular housing concept, resulting in a series of boatsheds, is more than we could have dreamed possible. The amount of positive comment on your design has been quite amazing, with two families looking to approach you for a similar concept. The construction has come within budget and we are very grateful to you for achieving this. We wish you well in the future, and many thanks once again for…
