Architecture and Design NZ

Bringing insight and perspective into commercial building and structural design

About ADNZ

Architecture and Design New Zealand is a blog that provides perspective for those planning a new build or renovation in a commercial building projects.

We believe design shouldn’t just be about how a building looks, but how it works.

It should be an enabler for employee productivity and customer satisfaction.  It needs to take into account business economics.  A building design should be part of a business’ brand.

Employing the services of an architect should be value building for your project.  We encourage you to seek their advice early into the build project.  It could save you hundreds of thousands of dollars.

We also offer advice on working with an architect on a project.  A good architect should be a valuable business partner.

ADNZ is co-edited by Mike Davies, Mark Bates and Geoff Glynan, directors at New Zealand Architect firm Architecture HDT.
