Generate Architecture is a Christchurch based architectural design practice founded by director Dan Birtles in early 2018. We are a small team with a large range of skills and undertake a huge variety of projects nationwide.
Our portfolio comprises of everything from traditional housing to high-end architectural homes as well as a number of larger commercial projects. No project is too big or too small, and no site is too difficult for us to tackle with proven experience on steep, complicated hill sections.
Being a small team we value a close connection with all our clients, and most importantly, we listen. Right from initial contact we work alongside you to turn your ideas and aspirations in to a unique design that not only meets your needs & budget but is something you can love and be proud of.
We'll draw on our experience to balance form & function, ensure cohesion between building and landscape and evaluate ways of both adding value and reducing cost.
We use the latest 3D computer software to bring your project to life, allowing you to experience a virtual walk-through of the concept design.
All of our designs are backed up by high quality, detailed construction drawings, something we take a huge amount of pride in.
Our services include everything from project conception, through to working drawings, consenting & contract administration.

From our first meeting on site, to final plans being presented to Council for Building Consent, Dan from Generate Architecture, handled the whole process with professional enthusiasm. Our brief was executed into a layout with inspirational design features. Minor changes we asked for, after initial concept, were no problem to Dan and he found ideal solutions. We found working with Dan easy and enjoyable. We have no hesitation in recommending Dan and Generate Architecture.
We had the pleasure of working with Dan and Generate Architecture during 2019-20 as we designed a new home in Canterbury. Very easy to work with. Creative, practical, thoughtful and so considerate of the things we wanted to achieve. There was always time to listen to our ideas and random requirements, suggest improvements, and discuss options to both add value and reduce costs. The detailing and accuracy of the construction drawings was better than anything we’ve worked with before and Dan’s commitment to meeting agreed timeframes made planning easy. We won’t hesitate to work with Generate Architecture again should the opportunity arise.
We simply cannot recommend Dan from Generate Architecture enough. From concept drawings, to the full range of documents required for consenting, to the ongoing input and support over the months of the build, the service we've received has exceeded our expectations. We have been greatly impressed by the ideas, practical advice and guidance that we have received. Dan was able to listen and collaborate effortlessly with both of us, even when my partner and I had conflicting ideas! Our home is stunning, practical and a joy to live in. We look forward to working with Dan and Generate Architecture again in the future, and to building another stunning home.
