Graham Sawell

ADNZ Life Member Pyramidz Architecture Design Ltd


With 38 years in architecture and design, I have had the opportunity to be associated with projects throughout New Zealand, the Pacific Islands and Japan.

Specialist areas of design are lakeside, coastal and country residential projects, as well as tourism and executive luxury lodges.

As a member of Architectural Designers NZ Inc for 23 years I have participated in the Annual Design Awards and have been recognised with 40 regional and 30 national awards, including three national Supreme Awards and the Practice Award.

My design office is situated north of Auckland, in Warkworth township, central to the Matakana coast region.

"Behind the basic philosophy of personal service is the belief that it is possible to combine innovative design with cost control to produce efficient, functional and delightful architecture"
