Profile

Higham Architecture is a specialist in unique, residential architecture, both new homes and additions/alterations. With over 20 years experience and more than 30 design awards, designer Jason Higham prides himself on high-quality architectural design and a personalised service to suit each client.

From initial concepts to final documentation, Jason ensures functional needs are met, balanced with aesthetics, and the budget. Leading-edge 3D software is used to create computer visualisations of each design so that clients can accurately see how their design will look and feel before it is even built.

Higham Architecture is Lifemark accredited, so Jason can help ensure your home design is accessible, adaptable and safe for your entire family now and in the future. Also certified as a Homestar Practitioner, sustainability aspects are important for Jason. Evidence of the quality of his service can be seen in the fact that many new clients approach Higham Architecture via word-of-mouth referrals.

While the office is based in Rangiora, Jason is regularly in Christchurch for site visits, client meetings, etc, so is well positioned to personally service the Canterbury region and further afield where required.

Client Reviews

"We found Jason to be very approachable and professional. He went out of his way to listen to and embrace our ideas and his meticulous attention to detail prevented problems at the building stage.
His design for our house has made excellent use of the views and sun and we have had lots of comments. We would recommend Jason to those seeking a unique and innovative design."

John & Rose



"After building twice before without the guidance of a designer, Jason made us feel very confident we would finally get what we wanted third time around. He followed our brief well and provided valuable detail to our plan and design that we would never have thought about ourselves. His inclusion and understanding of the Lifemark Design Standards was of great value."

Hayden & Jenny


"Having an older house, we needed someone to design our extension to be sympathetic to the original character of the home. Jason was able to do this for us. His presentation, 3D modelling and drawings were excellent, with absolute attention to the smallest of details. He gave us great confidence and allayed any worries we had about dealing with all the rules and regulations through council. His follow-up has been great and we are totally delighted with the end results!"
