We have a strong focus on social and environmental integration: the impacts of buildings on people. This means our work is based on evidence and needs, not an assumption. A hands-on approach characterises our practice and allows us to respond to large and small projects alike. Consistently high quality of service, design and technical rigour is achieved through creating a project-specific design and delivery process that can be made up of:
– Pre-design briefing, Workshops, User Group Analysis
– High-level Concept Design Basis
– Needs and Options Reviews
– External and Internal Stakeholder Communications
– Masterplanning and Feasibility Studies
– Detailed Design and Documentation
– Project Management and Final Delivery
– Business Case Development and Economic Modeling
– Post-occupancy Review and Testing
We pride ourselves on being able to adapt to a project. We do not hold to a specific style, instead, we connect with our clients to craft a bespoke, versatile and dynamic design to suit each commission.
A process of designing, prototyping, testing, then revising, allows us to create innovative architecture which our clients can tell stories and thrive within.
We recognise the potential for community, sport and recreation activity to have a huge impact on the lives of our young people. 106 has a focus on projects that connect communities through these activities.
We have a strong history with sports-community projects having worked closely with many individual clubs, community groups, the education sector, national sports organisations, regional sports trusts, and councils.
We know – that like sport – experience, passion, and expertise alone will not deliver a great result. It needs a great team.
We offer project management services that align your ‘vision’ or design strategy with your detailed brief. We then deliver this through great documentation and on-site delivery. As with all our services, we tailor this to suit your exact needs and expected outcomes.
We work with our clients, consultants, and contractors very closely throughout each project. Attentive and regular client contact and communications are key. Our team is very experienced in meeting the demands and expectations of any entity: private organisations, Boards of Trustees, local authority bodies, client stakeholders, and the wider community.
We have NZ Ministry of Education accreditation for 10YPP and 5YA delivery and are experienced in working with council processes.
Our points of difference are in our briefing, design, management, consultation communication and delivery tools.
– Leading the briefing, consultation and design process.
– Management and delivery of all modes of documentation.
– Administration of building contracts.
– Observing contract works.

Design-lead research and collaboration with our suppliers keep us ahead of the game. This enables us to provide innovative, responsive and commercially viable designs.
A room may be comprised of timber and tile, but the subtle qualities of intimacy, scale, volume and texture, along with the unique perspective each client brings, are what make the difference.
Successful projects blend design and aesthetics, sustainability and functionality. And they stick to budgets. Our small team at 106 helps bring these threads together.
Architecture has the ability to inspire and connect in every day. We’re not about pushing the latest ‘look’ onto an existing home: we’re committed to a sensitive contemporary design that responds to today’s lifestyle. So whether you’re adding a new storey to your home, seeking workplace or spatial planning, or refurbishing your local sports hub, our design-led, collaborative approach means you’ll achieve results that are tailor-made to fit.
