— What we do.

We’re passionate about innovative architecture. But, no matter what we’re designing, it’s our philosophy to connect aesthetics with functionality and sustainability, all while being mindful of your vision and budget.

— Multi-unit residential

Multi-unit residential development requires a careful balance between meeting expectations of potential buyers, complying with Unitary/District Plan requirements and making a profit in the process.

— Passive house

High performance, low energy buildings are warm, dry, healthy and cheap to run. Respond Architects can work with you to design your building to Passive House Certification, & other low energy certification standards.

— Commercial

Regardless of the size or complexity of your project, we’ll work closely with you to understand your vision and deliver a commercial space that’s fit for purpose.

— Residential

We don’t believe in sacrificing function for the sake of form. Instead, we connect the two to deliver stunning homes that work.

— Education

A combination of experience and intelligent design helps us deliver innovative, flexible and future focused learning environments, right across New Zealand.

— Remediation

Our goal is not only to remediate, but to enhance your building’s aesthetics, improve its functionality and ultimately add value.
