Bricks, mortar, wood and glass do not make a home. A home has to be comfortable, well lit, warm, dry and functional. Additionally, a home has to ‘feel’ like home. When you talk to a Rotorua architect at apa architects, they will help you uncover what you really want from your new home. An experienced Rotorua architect will draw on their skills and experience to help develop a comprehensive design brief. From that brief, our Rotorua architect will develop a thoughtful, exciting design, realising your design vision.

Great architecture meets both brief and budget and our success is reflected in our client testimonials.
