Weaving the story of people and place through award winning design. We work with nature to inspire and inform, to create living architecture - life-affirming places that are efficient, resilient and beautiful.

Working co-creatively with you, our designs are innovative and personalised to meet your unique needs. An enriching experience inspiring authentic living at home, at work and at play.

Working with CSA to bring your vision into existence as a living project invites architectural and co-creative partnership skills that embrace a new way of working. A key part of this is working with nature to inspire and inform our design to be regenerative, resilient and beautiful.

To do this, we work with you to build ‘living’ projects, following the natural stages of life from conception to gestation, emergence, existence/experience, through to renewal or return to earth.

By creating a living project, the project integrates and positively contributes within a larger living environment.

CHARISSA SNIJDERS

Charissa is an award-winning Registered Architect and Fellow of the NZIA, drawing on 25 years of professional experience. Her practice is design-led and committed to delivering regenerative living architecture – places that inspire and delight. Her integrative approach bridges indigenous wisdom with ground-breaking science. She weaves together the five foundational practices of Tikanga Maori, Regenerative practice, Biomimicry, Living Futures and Sacred form within the CSA process. With her team she brings beauty into form, creating places that nurture potential and enrich relationships with others and the world around us.

Charissa’s approach is co-creative; with her client as an integral partner on the team at every stage of the design and building process. Charissa oversees the delivery and documentation of the concept design with the support and expertise of her team. She coordinates and delivers an inspired outcome that is not preconceived, rather a combination of the client’s unique requirements, the story of the land and the budget. The aim is always to achieve an outcome beyond the client’s expectations. For Charissa, a successful project inspires authentic living; bringing greater meaning to all those who experience it.
