MacPherson Architecture adopts a client-focused, collaborative approach to architectural, interior & landscape design creating continuity and integrity over all three design principles. Established in Cambridge 2000, we are a Waikato/Auckland based practice with projects across NZ. Chris MacPherson's ability to understand your brief is directly reflected in the diversity & intuition shown in his work. Chris, Architectural Designer & Landscape Designer - is a licensed practitioner, Level 2, member of NZGBC and BBE.
Design is subjective , always evolving and generally influenced by trend. We believe certain design principles never change - proportion, scale, dimension and good use of space & materials are distinctive elements of design. These principles are subject to the skill of any designer's ability to visualise the end result of every individual project. When MacPherson Architecture clients work with Chris, they love the experience of discovering why certain aspects of their interpreted design appeals without realising. As a design office, having that experience turn into your visualised home or work space is extremely important to us. We do our utmost to deliver your expectations at every professional & personal level possible.
As a design team, we work very professionally with our clients from the initial design schematic stage, 3d modelling through to delivering fully comprehensive consent architectural and engineering detailing & documentation - facilitating a hassle-free permit process & build. We will confirm the budget & contractual documentation with your builder and then work with you throughout the build in project & site management, Interior design & Landscape design. All of this forms the essence of our professional services.
Chris has significant horticultural knowledge and experience and because we do it all in house - we manage the ability to retain the continuity of your design & style. Our design expertise is to create a seamless transition between indoor/outdoor spaces marrying perfectly with your interiors. Robyn specialises in interiors & fit-out.
As a future-based practice - our biggest passion is to use sustainable and integral building materials. We believe the built environment is not just based on good design but has to be sustainable, durable and healthy. As members of the NZ Green Building Council (NZGBC) and Building Biology & Ecology (BBE) we work closely with our clients to help them achieve the best possible long-term solutions for their investment. We specialise in the design & construction of Clay Block Homes using POROTHERM by Wienerberger. This has given us the ability to present our clients with the opportunity to adopt our philosophy of the' Fabric First' approach - 100% natural, breathable, durable & healthy materials in building.
