12 PEOPLE — 400+ PROJECTS AROUND NEW ZEALAND — 1000+ CLIENTS SINCE 2008
We’re a team of Architects that tread the line between creative design solutions and technical expertise.
It’s a balance that we work hard to maintain in projects of all scales and at every step along the way. We’re excited about new ways of doing things but our depth of experience and multi-disciplinary approach means that it will be done right. Our tight partnerships with experts in engineering and surveying make us a one-stop-shop for excellent, original and sensitive design solutions.
We believe in architecture as a response – to people, place, and to physical, cultural and historical context. Design, for us, evolves from these factors, which is why we are not constrained to any one architectural style.
In 2007, our studio began its life as a division of Prendos NZ Ltd, where our focus was on the design for remediation of buildings that had gone wrong. We became experts in producing Architecture that performs in response to New Zealand’s unique environment: rainy, shaky, windy, hot, cold, damp, dry, slippery – you get the idea. It’s now part of our design philosophy to integrate aesthetics, practicality, sustainability and functionality, all while being respectful of our client’s budgets.
Over time, we have gathered people from around the world to grow the practice and take the studio to the next level. So, in 2016 we created a new brand: Respond Architects, to reflect this.
Our clients include some very cool, progressive home owners and developers, government departments including the Ministry of Education, Schools, Body Corporates, Property Managers and commercial property owners. While we are based in Auckland, our designs are found around the country, a fact we are very proud of.
But enough about us…
