We believe good architecture results from a refined process of collaboration, creativity, insight, and best practice. Our client’s needs are at the heart of what we do, where our mission is to improve your quality of life and the utility of your building, through designing sustainable built environments.


We provide a full range of architectural services – from initial briefing, detailed analysis, problem solving and design to full documentation, tendering, contract management, and post-occupancy review.

Our thorough and complete process leads to better buildings and long-term outcomes. You will enjoy greater overall value with a building designed for lifetime use, lower maintenance, and lower energy costs.


Building design and construction (or architecture and construction) are collaborative processes requiring positive relationships and excellent communication – whether a project involves a single residential client or a large, complex team of stakeholders, consultants, and contractors.

We have found that our inclusive approach to projects results in better project outcomes, and fruitful long-term partnerships that lead to repeat work.


Pynenburg & Collins Architects has always believed in achieving the right balance between design, construction and cost. We manage these constraints carefully, because a building project is only successful when it meets all aspects of the brief. Getting this right requires the right application of our professional experience, an excellent team of consultants and contractors, and a detailed knowledge of construction.


As practice members of the New Zealand Institute of Architects (NZIA), we are up-to-date with the latest architectural knowledge and best practice. You are assured of the latest contracts and templates together with thorough building consent and tender documentation, so that your project runs professionally and as smoothly as possible.
