Welcome to our creative architectural studio, nestled in the enchanting landscapes of Dunedin.
We assist our clients in imagining homes that will enhance their daily life and make them feel connected to their surroundings. Contact us for house architecture in Dunedin and abroad. Enjoy living in a home that adapts to your needs and reflects your unique story.
As architectural designers, we believe that a good architecture is not merely about structures but an extraordinary experience it delivers. Each living space should embrace the ebb and flow of everyday life – where you can live, work, play, and cherish moments with your loved ones.
From the very inception of your project, we embrace the challenge of exploring the boundless possibilities that lie ahead. Whether it’s new builds or alterations to existing spaces, we create architectural designs that stand strong against time’s touch.
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.
At Eco Workshop, we wholeheartedly embrace architecture with a focus on creating livable designs. We firmly believe that the spaces we inhabit have the power to uplift our lives and well-being. Therefore, we carefully consider the arrangement of spaces, materials used, and the overall form of buildings.
As proud members of ADNZ (Architectural Designers New Zealand), we take our responsibility seriously in producing architecture that leaves a positive impact on the lives it touches. Our designs aim to be timeless, something for people to cherish and admire for generations to come.
With our extensive experience in various design solutions and a deep understanding of different client needs and site conditions, we have a rich resource to draw upon. Moreover, our team’s innate ability to think innovatively allows us to create fresh and cutting-edge solutions as we move forward.
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.
Our expertise extends to various types of projects, encompassing new residential builds, alterations, commercial projects, and urban developments. We strongly believe in collaboration, working closely with clients, consultants, contractors, and councils to ensure excellence in every endeavour. Should you desire it, we are ready to share our trusted experience, innovative ideas, and professional guidance throughout the entire project.
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:
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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Eco-Workshop have an excellent team. I have used them for multiple projects, and they have done a great job in offering excellent ideas, getting our consents through the approval process, all while showing incredible patience with my notes and changes. Highly recommend
Bevan was introduced to us through our builder and we couldn't have been more happy with the reccommendation. This being our first construction project we weren't sure what to expect. Bevan took the time to explain the process to us, making sure we were getting the outcomes we were looking for. Bevan's communication was timely and exceeded all our expectations. When faced with a potential issue that could have effected our consent and overall look, Beven went above and beyond to come up with a solution. We Strongly reccommend Bevan and the team at Eco Workshop. We will be using them for any future work. An absolute pleasure to deal with. Many, many thanks.
We really enjoyed working with Sarah and Bevan at Ecoworkshop. They took our initial idea and turned it into a great design. They were really responsive to our questions and suggestions and it was reassuring knowing exactly what the designs would cost, the process and what to expect from the very beginning.
While the project was relatively small, the team at Eco Workshop respected my ideas and needs, tackling the minutiae of technicalities with patience and dedication. Fun to work with; the only aspect straining my patience were Covid/Supply related issues.
Sarah has done an exceptional job in design, sourcing trades people and managing the renovation project, I can not speak more highly of her and would recommend her to anyone looking to renovate or build
Bevan and Sarah where absolutely amazing to deal with . Would highly recommend using eco workshop
Awesome designs and go the extra mile to give a helping hand
