Archoffice is a design-led, service-orientated architectural practice in Auckland committed to delivering high quality, unique projects. We pay particular attention to issues of site, locality, history, culture, scale, intensity, sustainability, climate and materiality in the New Zealand context to express an appropriate but innovative Architecture. We strive to produce award-winning schemes that meet or exceed our clients and users expectations both aesthetically and functionally.

Archoffice has a strong history with community, commercial and residential projects having worked closely with many different and diverse client groups. We prepare master plans and feasibility studies, as well as developing the design through to completion.


Archoffice currently employs graduates and Registered Architects. Our preference is to have smaller, but more experienced support teams for large and small projects alike. These are supported by additional contract production CAD technicians as required. In our experience this offers a more efficient method of working as core staff members have an intimate knowledge of the task at hand. Maintaining continuity of Director level involvement on a day to day basis has greater benefits for the project as a whole.

Archoffice is located in an open plan studio so that the Directors and project team are in easy communication. This ensures that knowledge of the project is coordinated thoroughly and all communications with the client and others are optimised for every project.

Brendan Rawson B Arch, FNZIA, NZCD Arch


The work the office is involved in at the moment is quite varied and consists of Local Authority and residential projects with some recreational & sports projects. My work, as at December 2013 has mainly involved the existing Aotea Centre foyer refurbishment work to compliment the ASB Theatre Refurbishment (2012), plus a mix of residential and other local authority work.

Birkenhead Library which I completed in 2009 has won numerous awards at both National and Local levels as well as some others such as Timber Design, DINZ, Property Council and WANZ. The local community love their Library and our office is proud of the result.

I have a strong interest in Architecture and design in New Zealand and have travelled extensively both locally and internationally - the last trip as part of the NZIA design series to present the Birkenhead library in all the main centers in NZ. I am a visiting critic at Auckland School of Architecture and Unitec School of Architecture. I am an Assessor with the Registered Architects Board.

I am interested in the result that can be designed by the relationship of architecture to its site in the New Zealand climate and how to engage fully with issues of tactility, form, material detailing, and special relationships related to a client’s brief so that the brief is extended and fulfilled.
