We are a Christchurch based Architectural and Interior Design Practice creating intelligent award-winning designs.

Lead by Cymon Allfrey and Craig South, our dedicated team are people driven and credit client satisfaction to our success. With a passion for innovative and individualised design, we employ a collaborative approach in order to provide our clients with an outcome that far exceeds the dream they originally set out to achieve.

We pride ourselves on our considered approach to design, with awareness of the environment, location and client needs all working harmoniously together to ensure an enduring and bespoke result, unique to the client and their site.

We recognize the significance of our working relationship with our clients, and the effect we have on the life changing journey you are embarking on. We believe we have a responsibility to ensure our clients’ journey is as stress-free as possible and strive to build professional, sincere and honest relationships that remain strong even after the project is complete.

At Cymon Allfrey Architects Limited, we appreciate the importance of celebrating successes, not only at the completion of a project but throughout the process and look forward to the opportunity to share in your journey. Be it a coffee to celebrate the foundation being poured, or a pinot on the terrace to admire the finished product, we are with you, every step of the way.

We believe architecture to be a considered insertion into the environment. It must contribute in a positive way to its site, street, neighbourhood, city and to the architectural language of our country.

We pride ourselves on creating bespoke architecture that is formed after we have listened. Architecture that is a unique response to a one-off set of criteria, influenced by our clients’ values, needs and requirements and informed by the site and climate of the area.

Our architecture reflects our passion for design, innovation and inspiration; creating well considered buildings that reflect our clients’ ideals. We work in collaboration with our clients to understand their goals and aspirations for their project and then convert their ideas and perspectives into a built form.

We believe we have a responsibility, to our clients and to their site, to create the best possible design, employing verified techniques, specialists and panache to guarantee the finished product is tailored for the intended location and occupants.

Through regular education and exposure to modern techniques and innovative ideas, our team is at the forefront of innovation and advancement in our field. Combined with our vast breadth of experience, we have the ability and knowledge to create solutions that meet the requirements of all clients, however diverse, specific or prescriptive their needs may be.

Architecture is not simply an external benefit – a well-dressed ‘shell’ of a structure on a site. It is about well-crafted, well-organised, considered spaces that enhance living. Fundamentally, all human beings live and function the same way, this means that we all require the same basic needs for our homes – bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and living spaces – yet the success of our interior comes down to the relationships which exist between these spaces.

Interior architecture is about providing functional, beautiful spaces that will stand the test of time, ready for fittings and fixtures to be inserted and adapted as fashions change. Be it a new build or an alteration, where our clients envision having their morning coffee, eating lunch, entertaining friends and living in their home is influenced by the internal spaces they have available. In order to create designs, tailored specifically for each client, we need to understand how they live and how they want to live. Allowing us to approach the design process with a holistic view, connecting the interior to the site, climate and the way the clients will interact and experience their spaces.

Interior architecture allows the provision of a cohesive and co-ordinated design from the inside out. One cannot exist without the other, yet the success of the interior is intrinsically linked to the success of the exterior.

We begin at the end.

We want to know your vision, how you will feel when the project is complete and how we can help to achieve this. We want you to picture yourself relaxing on the terrace of your new home with us, your architectural team - a fine glass of pinot in hand - reflecting on a successful journey together.

It's about your vision, not ours.

We ensure that your home will be a collaborative effort, while we have a wealth of experience, we don't have all the answers. It is by listening to your dreams and understanding your needs that we are able to make these dreams come true.

We understand the design and build process.

We take the stress out of building by assisting you through the journey, clearly explaining the process and ensuring there are no cost, or timeline surprises. We are responsive to your needs and remain reliable and approachable from beginning to end.

We ensure there is harmony, inside and out.

We believe the interior architecture of your home must inform the exterior design to the same extent that that exterior design brings life to the interior - all based on the unique needs of your family.

We know that your home represents a significant investment.

We recognise that each of our clients have different motivators for their project therefore we strive to build homes of enduring value that are a testament to you and a legacy for your family.

We understand that your home is an expression of you.

We work with you to ensure that your home projects an image which is consistent with the way you see yourself and the way in which you wish others to perceive you.
