Imagine Architecture is a multi-award winning architectural design practice that has been in business since 2002 with specialist expertise in Residential and Commercial design. Our practice has evolved through many iterations over the years. From starting in a shoebox home office, to growing into occupying historic premises at the Kings Building in New Plymouth, then to a sleek downtown high street practice. We have now gone back to our roots with two bespoke studios for Tony and Steven, giving is a presence in Tauranga and New Plymouth respectively.

“Changing lives through great architecture & design”. That is the mission of Imagine Architecture. Since 2002, we have sought to infuse that mission into every project. Our designs are for high performance buildings that change lives. 

Imagine Architecture aspires to uphold the Pritzker Architecture Prizewinner Glenn Murcutt’s ideal: ‘to touch the earth lightly’. This means we look at how nature has crafted the environment to this point in time, and form our design in relationship to that. For example, we have sculpted designs to the land, rather than the land to the design. Nature has brought us those spaces, so we strive to design structures to be harmonious with that nature. As custodians we seek to protect the environment through diligent stewardship and utilisation of the best high performance technology.  

Our experience in over 1000 commissions to date is wide and diverse. In addition to servicing Bay of Plenty and Taranaki, we have commissions throughout New Zealand and have projects in Australia and Italy. In this modern age, geography is no barrier to delivering architectural excellence. The Imagine Architecture team's track record shows an ability to adapt quickly to client changes, government legislation and technical site situations. We have specialist experience in:

  • Residential homes and renovations

Imagine Architecture promotes itself on the principle of “relationship marketing”. A large number of commissions come to Imagine Architecture by way of referrals from existing clients. This method of marketing reflects our philosophy of creating quality relationships with clients. This is achieved by friendly, clear and up front communication matched with a quality design service that meets the aesthetic, functional & financial requirements of the client.

Imagine Architecture is the experienced team to use if you are looking for innovative design that respects the environment, quality technical documentation, superior service through excellent communication.

“My wife and I had an outstanding experience working with Tony and Steven from Imagine Architecture. From the initial design phase to the submission of our consent and throughout the construction phase, their commitment and professionalism was impressive. They kept us engaged throughout the design process, making sure every detail was aligned with our vision.

During the building consent application stage, their thoroughness stood out, and their prompt responses to the council's inquiries were consistently impressive – always within the same day, but generally within the same hour the queries were sent through from council.

Without a doubt, we would recommend Imagine Architecture to anyone seeking architectural services. Their dedication, expertise, and collaborative approach make them an excellent choice. We will most definitely be using them our our next build!
