Here at archistudio, we would like to work with you to create your dreams and turn them into reality through concepts and 3D modelling. We offer a free initial no obligation meeting, scheduled on site, office, home or where ever is most convenient to discuss the project, scope, and share your visions and ideas of your design for the project. At this stage your input is valued and reference material, images, articles, and styles are a good way to establish a direction, your distinctive style defining what you want and how you want to live or just wishing to explore your options.


On agreeing to proceed to sketch design, we consult with local authorities and obtain the council file to determine any site restrictions or council regulations. We create a detailed brief that reflects how you would like to live, how you function, room requirements, spaces, activities, entertaining, special needs, furniture, storage etc. We then take into account site-specific information, prevailing winds, views, sun, features, access, and services. On completion we set up a sketch design meeting to review the design, discuss areas of change and take a walk through the project on our 3D modelling software to gain a better understanding of the scope of your design. Once the sketch design has been finalized you can agree to move to the next stage; developed and detail design to building consent. There is no obligation to proceed to develop or detail design after sketch, we understand you want to explore all options and help you discover all possibilities.


We can then proceed to developed and detail design, which is an integration of greater detail. We add desired materials, finishes, layouts, specific aspects, sustainability, energy efficiency, basic costing and develop it to detail design (Building Consent/Construction). Full building consent documentation will be provided in an agreed time frame, standard detail design usually takes 4-6 weeks. Detail and developed design can be done separately, staging the development to ensure the highest detail has been reviewed before proceeding to building consent.

Additions and alterations generally require twice the amount of time on site investigations, research, planning and detailing. We need to document the existing building, in addition to the new design. We need to be sure that the building work not only fits the overall design but ensures the existing is in a suitable condition for the required work. We can do all addition or remedial works that you require, from decks to complete re clad’s, and can show the extent of your project virtually from demolition, to remain and proposed.


RESOURCE CONSENT In some cases, the project falls outside the requirements of the district plan. In this case we can work with the relevant Council and Town Planning Consultant for Resource Consent approval.
TENDER DOCUMENTS Provide drawings to a greater level of detail than that of building consent for pricing by selected tenders. This ensures an in depth look into the project in detail, ultimately giving a better platform to price the building from illustrating its true cost. This involves the designer preparing the drawings in greater detail, calling/answering tenderer’s questions to ensure your tender prices are comparing ‘apples with apples’ and helping work through suitable cost savings or alternative options within your budget.

Testimonial: “Esther and I would like to thank Kyle for delivering us a superbly designed home. Our dream was 11 years in the making and it was imperative we had a house that opened itself to an array of possibilities as we have a young growing family. After consulting with a few designers Kyle definitely had that point of difference we were looking for. He took what Esther and I were trying to envisage for our property with a modern and contemporary style yet a design that was functional and personable. Through Kyle’s creativity and knowledge of design our dream was realised and we have a beautiful house we are proud to call home. Throughout the whole building process Kyle was ever only a phone call away and we’d have no hesitation in recommending Kyle to design your dream home. ” – Client
