OZAC Architects is an NZ-based international Partnership bespoke architectural practice who specialises in delivering urban and architecture design solutions to enhance the lives of those who use them.
The practice was founded in 2005 known as Jackson and Associate International Architects (JAIA). It expanded overseas in Shanghai during 2007-2013, then came back to NZ rebranded as OZAC Architects in 2014.
The founding of the practice was a result of the Partners’ aspiration to create multicultural projects with architectural, economic, environmental, and social integrity.
