Condon Scott Architects

Condon Scott Architects Ltd (formerly known as Sarah Scott Architects Ltd) has been based in Wanaka for 28 years.

Currently the practice employs seven people, with a broad range of skills and nationalities, working closely together in a studio environment. We have designed a wide range of residential and commercial projects, including numerous ski field projects.

Each commission is unique and site specific and clients are encouraged to be involved throughout the design process. We offer innovative solutions to demanding sites and client briefs.

Having completed more than 400 projects in the Wanaka & Central Otago region over the past 28 years we have a wide range of experience in extreme climate, high altitude architecture and extensive experience with Resource Consent Applications in sensitive (outstanding visual amenity) landscapes.

The practice offers strong design based architecture and focuses on marrying client needs with sound building practises to maximise environmental and climate conditions.

SARAH SCOTT

REGISTERED ARCHITECT (NZRAB), FNZIA, BACHELOR OF ARCHITECTURE

I  have more than 35 years experience as a practising architect. Since 1988 I have have been running my own architectural practice in Wanaka. Over this time I have worked on numerous projects in all parts of the country but mostly in the lower South Island.

During my years in Wanaka I have been extensively involved with community projects and mentoring of local high school students. I was made a Fellow of the New Zealand Institute of Architects in 2013.

Over the past three years I have formed a partnership with my long term colleague and friend, Barry Condon. Henceforth we will be known as Condon Scott Architects Ltd.

BARRY CONDON

REGISTERED ARCHITECT (NZRAB), ANZIA, B. ARCH. SC. (HONS), DIP. ARCH. (HONS)

With more than 15 years experience, Barry’s comprehensive abilities enable him to contribute across the various areas of a project from concept, design development and construction. He is passionate about solving the unique challenges presented with each brief and the constraints of a site to deliver a rewarding outcome for the client.
“No two projects are the same. I enjoy collaborating with clients to craft a tailor-made solution specific to their needs.”

Irish-trained, Barry graduated in 1998 and spent a formative period of professional development in Dublin during the height of Ireland’s construction boom. With a desire to travel and gain further experience overseas, Barry worked for well known firms Cox Architects (Melbourne) and Architectus (Auckland) before settling in Wanaka and joining the Sarah Scott Architects team in 2005. Barry gained membership to the New Zealand Institute of Architects in 2009 and joined the partnership in 2012.

2011

NEW ZEALAND INSTITUTE OF ARCHITECTS
Sarah Scott Architects won the NZIA Southern Architecture Award for Public Architecture for the design of the Wanaka Catholic Church.

WINDOW ASSOCIATION OF NEW ZEALAND NATIONAL AWARD
The Wanaka Catholic Church project won against two other National finalists in the WANZ Awards. “Medieval Catholic churches used darkness to create religious mystery. This church is quite the opposite,” said the judges. “Curving clerestory windows flood the body of the church with light, while more contemplative spaces on either side have end windows in the form of a cross set deep externally in a coursed rubble wall. Minimal joinery either side of the sacristy enable a view of the mountains beyond.”
