Welcome to OZAC Architects! We’re glad you’re here.
We are Auckland architects with international reach and full-service capabilities offering bespoke architectural design.
Whether you are looking to develop residential and apartment housing, a commercial complex, or an entire urban setting, we can provide the solutions you need to create the perfect environment.
What We Do
At OZAC, we are a bespoke architectural firm that specializes in designing medium to high density residential complexes. Terraced housing and apartment projects are a particular specialty, and we currently have in-progress terrace projects ranging from 3-unit homes to 300 plus unit apartment complexes.
However, while these are our specialty, we offer full design-to-construction services for:
- Apartment Complexes
- Residential Areas
- Commercial Complexes
- Terraced Housing
- Detached Housing
- Mixed-Use Complexes
- Cultural Centres
- Vacation Villages
- Headquarter Offices
Whether a low-density or high-density project, or an isolated structure or an entire urban area, OZAC has the experience and skills required for the task. Because we provide bespoke architectural services and have an incredibly diverse and experienced team, we are able to create plans for a wide array of structures and area types and can offer truly unique designs.
With our diverse and experienced team of planners, engineers, and urban designers, we can provide full-service planning and development services, from concept design through completion of construction. This creates a seamless experience for our clients, allowing them to have one simple point of contact from start to finish of their project, alleviating much stress and speeding up the process.
Since we are a bespoke architectural firm and provide high levels of customization and full design and planning services, we also emphasize client communication throughout the entire process. We believe listening well and understanding our clients are the only ways to approach our projects.
As architects in Auckland and abroad, we excel at creating urban architecture designed to enhance the lives of those using it while working with, rather than against, a site’s natural backdrop. We work with the landscape and natural context to create structures that will take the greatest advantage of the site’s potential, both architecturally and commercially.
We believe in creating housing and spaces that not only benefit the individuals who will be using it but will also benefit the planet as well. That is why we are careful to work with the nature surrounding each site, using earth-friendly and sustainable materials and methods.
This push to be earth-conscious has resulted in many innovations of which we are proud and has enhanced the creativity and usability of the structures and areas we create, rather than hindering it.
