Today we hear from 2 multi award winning inspiring Architects:
Gary Todd Architecture was initially Gary Todd Design established in 1993 in Dunedin by Architectural Designer Gary Todd, and this architectural practice has expanded to include a second office established in 2006 in Wanaka to create a wide variety of residential and commercial urban and rural projects.
Gary Todd Architecture has received over 70 regional or National Architectural Design testament to the ability to provide creative solutions for clients that are both highly successful and fulfilling for all those involved.
As a multi disciplined award winning practice Gary Todd Architecture provides excellence in design, experienced professional support to all aspects of a project with resource consent planning, building documentation with tendering and contract administration, interior fit out and landscaping as required by the client to complete a vision.
"We believe each project brings different client requirements, and that our response is to guide that project through a collective process to success, whether it is a small alteration or large new building. The end result is to create inspirational spaces with enduring architecture that meets and exceeds the client and public expectations."
"Our practice is green minded and actively incorporates innovative sustainable design and construction techniques with an environmental sensitivity to contribute to our society's future."
Formerly Coll Architecture, Fabric is an award-winning Christchurch practice of architects and designers. Specialising in shaping bold, beautiful and highly functional spaces that are perfect for their surroundings and for the people who call them home.
"We know that your space is part of the fabric of your existence, and creating it is personal. So we also specialise in shaping a great experience."
"We get to know you, you get to know us. We learn your needs, wants, lifestyle and the lie of the land. You enjoy the benefit of our two decades of knowhow as we smooth away the sharp edges of process. Led by registered architect Mitchell Coll, our tight-knit team thinks big, works the detail and explores the what-ifs, and together we make good things happen."
"Some of our spaces feature low energy, environmentally-conscious design and prefabricated construction. Others demonstrate the extent of our capability with the most technically challenging sites. All of them include thoughtful spatial planning around exciting form, efficiencies and flow, and creativity that ties architecture, interior and landscape together with inspiration."
"We’re humbled that our work has been recognised within the industry, including in the ADNZ National Supreme and People’s Choice Awards, and the NZIA Local Multi-unit and Small Project Awards".
