CoLab Architecture is a small practice of two Directors, Tobin Smith and Blair Paterson, based in Christchurch New Zealand. 

Tobin is a creative designer with a wealth of experience in the building industry. He was a founding director of award-winning Form Architecture in 2005 and Tobin Smith design in 2010. 

Blair is a registered architect and graduate from the University of Auckland. He spent ten formative years in the Christchurch offices of Warren and Mahoney, followed by MAP, before co-founding CoLab in 2011. 

"We like architecture to be visually powerful, intellectually elegant, and above all timeless. For us, timeless design is achieved through simplicity and strength of concept - in other words, a single idea executed beautifully with a dedication to the details. We strive to create architecture that is conscious of local climate (hunker down in Winter/open up in Summer) and the environment (scale and relationship to other buildings and the natural environment)".
