Profile

Tony has been involved in the building industry since 1993, owning his own architecture practice since 2002. He is a Professional Member of ADNZ and has previously served as a Director and Chair of its National Board. His business is based in New Plymouth.

His practice, Imagine Architecture, is a multi award winning architectural firm which is driven by the notion of “Changing people’s lives though great architecture & design”. This is delivered via:

- Energy efficiency

- Sustainability and efficiency

- Aesthetics / architectural appeal

- Function and use of space

- Quality of environment, both air and light

- Value through quality design

This is applied across all their projects irrespective of size or budget. Their belief is that there is an opportunity with every project to make better choices and better decisions to improve the quality of the space experienced by its occupants. Merely meeting minimum building code requirements is not enough. Exceeding minimums is the key to better buildings whether they be new architectural homes or commercial structures. Optimum performance ahead of minimum compliance every time!

Outside of architecture his life revolves around his partner Jackie and their children. Tony plays club cricket and recently competed in the NZ Masters cricket competition winning the gold medal.

Client Reviews

“My wife and I had an outstanding experience working with Tony and Steven from Imagine Architecture. From the initial design phase to the submission of our consent and throughout the construction phase, their commitment and professionalism was impressive. They kept us engaged throughout the design process, making sure every detail was aligned with our vision.

​During the building consent application stage, their thoroughness stood out, and their prompt responses to the council's inquiries were consistently impressive.

​Without a doubt, we would recommend Imagine Architecture to anyone seeking architectural services. Their dedication, expertise, and collaborative approach make them an excellent choice. We will most definitely be using them our our next build!”
