Premium Home Architecture Design Studio in Dunedin

Welcome to our creative architectural design studio. Nestled in the enchanting landscapes of Dunedin, we serve the greater Otago region.

We assist our clients in imagining homes that will enhance their daily life and make them feel connected to their surroundings. As architectural designers, we believe that a good architecture is not merely about structures but the extraordinary experience it delivers.

From the very inception of your project, we embrace the challenge of exploring the boundless possibilities that lie ahead. Whether it’s new builds, renovations or extensions, we create architectural designs that stand strong against time’s touch.

Contact us to work with an architectural design and drafting team that prioritises your vision, bringing your dream home to life on time and within budget.

But the first step of every successful project starts with a conversation. Reach out to us today, and together, we’ll create something truly inspiring.

Eco Homes Dunedin – Your Ultimate Home Sweet Home!

At Eco Workshop Ltd., we design eco homes Dunedin – your perfect place that you’ll love returning to after a long day at work or even after a mountain vacation. We consider every aspect of the build, from the structure and landscape to the surrounding climate and choice of building materials. Even the smallest details like finishing, ventilation, and lighting are taken into account.

Our primary goal is to provide you with a home that beautifully blends with your lifestyle in both functional and aesthetic aspects.

Should you desire it, we are ready to share our trusted experience, innovative ideas, and professional guidance throughout the entire project.

Architectural Designs For Attractive, Usable Spaces

Our architectural designs focus on creating attractive and highly functional spaces. We strive to craft environments that not only catch the eye but also cater to the practical needs of the occupants.

Our close collaboration with clients ensures that their projects align with their intended goals. This involves considerations such as building orientation on the site, concept design, and preliminary cost investigations. Whether it’s new constructions or renovations, our approach is centred on enhancing usability and ensuring that every space serves its purpose efficiently.

Our cover the following areas when it comes to architectural designs:

  • Kitchen Renovation Design
  • New Build Homes
  • Building Design
  • House Extension Design

Residential Homes – Where Beauty Meets Functionality

Planning to create your dream home through new construction or renovation? Looking for an open flow between kitchen and living areas to make the house feel light, open and spacious? Eco Workshop offers comprehensive custom services tailored to your unique requirements including:

  • Full design assistance to transform your ideas into council-approved building plans.
  • Custom architectural detailing and designs that caters to your lifestyle
  • BIM modelling services
  • Handling challenging site constructions

3D Modelling – Full Conceptual Visualisation

We use advanced 3D modelling software to create designs that provide a full visualisation of your project in relation to site contours, orientation, neighbouring buildings, and illustrating sun paths. Our detailed 3D renders serve as the final concept that shows a complete representation of your new or renovated home from every perspective so you can envision precisely how your future home will look and feel from all angles.

Architectural Draughting Services NZ

As experienced architectural designers in Dunedin, we possess a wealth of knowledge and expertise in delivering high-quality architectural drafting services in NZ. With a deep understanding of architectural design principles, construction techniques, building codes, and local regulations, we excel in creating detailed technical drawings that bring your vision to life.

Our draughts serve as a visual representation of our design ideas and include various elements like floor plans, elevations, sections, and construction details. All our designs are customised according to the client’s needs and lifestyle. We collaborate closely with them to understand their requirements thoroughly.

Site Investigation To Consider Every Possibility

Whether you already have a site or are in the process of selecting one, we offer our expertise to guide you through the various factors of site selection and feasibility.

Our assistance includes carefully evaluating crucial aspects, such as the availability of essential services like power, phone, and water.

We also assess site contours, stability, and orientation to ensure the best possible foundation for your project.
Additionally, we take into account the specific requirements of the Territorial Authority to ensure compliance with all necessary regulations.

We provide comprehensive support and insights to help you make informed decisions about your project’s location and viability.

Repairing Your Home After A Disaster

New Zealand’s climate conditions are unpredictable which make it challenging to anticipate when natural disasters may strike. In times of calamities, we offer disaster repair services. From 2012 to 2019, Eco Workshop focused on rebuilding residential houses in Christchurch following the devastating earthquake in 2011.

Collaborating with Southern Response and Arrow International, we delivered council-approved construction drawings for over 1000 homes. This experience has given us extensive knowledge in disaster repair methodologies and detailed design, ensuring we are well-prepared to assist in times of crisis.

Our Philosophy – Where Two Heads Are Better Than One

We believe that two heads are better than one, and therefore, we enjoy working collaboratively with clients to turn their ideas into reality. Our design process revolves around understanding their aspirations and meeting their needs in terms of lifestyle, site structure, the surrounding environment, and family requirements.

Each of our builds is a one-off boutique project. Over the years, we have developed strong relationships with local engineers, builders, councils, planners, and other industry players in Dunedin city, making the entire project completion a stress-free endeavour.

We provide a scope of work along with a fee proposal that aligns with the expected scope. From there, we create concept designs, engage relevant consultants, and develop full working drawings for building consent.
