What our clients are saying:
Over the years The Designer has helped many people just like you create the home they wanted. Below is what they thought of the experience in their own words.
  • We have engaged The Designer since early 2001 to provide us with architectural services. The Designer has provided us with a professional service in a timely and cost effective manner. From scheme plans, to working drawings our expectations have always been exceeded. Their service has extended to ensure Local authority matters are dealt with swiftly to ensure our consents come out in a timely manner. Their ability to work with us and our clients, together with the local authorities has ensured our success as a building company throughout the South Island.

    Peak Construction Ltd – Golden Homes, South Island
  • Enter ‘The Designer’ – yes there is a process in getting a design 100%, but this process was made so easy by people that can listen to ideas and turn your dreams into reality. No detail too small. I can still remember clearly seeing the first elevations of ‘our home’. “From the mind to the page” just as I had imagined. The house comprises a mix of materials and innovative design and met our brief as described.

    Christine Domigan of Milcrest Holdings, NELSON
  • We take this opportunity to thank you for making the entire process from the beginning to end so enjoyable and stress free. You are a very good listener and in fact it was like “you got it” immediately as if you could read our minds. When the plans were drafted there were only two minor changes before completion. The building Inspector at our local Council along with our builder were both very impressed with the excellent detail of the plans that were produced.

    Noel & Marain Hurley, OTOROHANGA
