David Wingate
Director, Architecture | Design

David is an architect with wide experience of architectural design and management in New Zealand and the UK. He has experience in many fields, including public buildings, education, commercial, interiors, retail and residential buildings. More recently David has developed particular skills in housing projects and urban design. David strives to produce high quality design solutions to meet clients' needs in all respects: visually, environmentally, technically, on time and on budget.

David's design method involves close dialogue with the client to explore and develop the brief and ensure that the design grows out of a shared understanding of the objectives. In this way the design can bridge the gap between what is desirable and what is possible.


Chris Brading
Principal, Architecture

Chris heads the architecture team and is an architectural designer with experience gained in New Zealand and the UK. That experience spans a wide range of project types and sizes. Chris' interest in efficient design is reinforced by his background in community, industrial projects and multi-unit housing. His comprehensive understanding of the building industry enables him to successfully lead large teams and coordinate multiple consultants with ease and competence. This skill is demonstrated by Chris' involvement in numerous commercial projects.


Paul Van Lent
Principal, Interior Design

Paul leads the Interior Design team. He is a spatial designer with a specialised focus on the rapidly evolving design of office workplaces. In the last 15 years Paul has worked on a diverse range of projects from boutique office fit outs and renovations, to providing strategic planning and workplace design solutions for large multinational organisations. Paul believes strongly in the influence that the built environment can have on both an organisation and the individual, and brings a considered and focused design response to achieving the best outcome for both. His experience covers all design processes from strategic briefing through to construction observation on site.

Paul's rounded knowledge further draws from 10 years of practical construction experience, gained throughout New Zealand, the UK and Holland.


Thomas Oki
Associate, Designer

Thomas has a background in industrial design and product development. He is consequently conversant, not only with visual design principles, but also with the technical aspects of design. Thomas obtained a National Diploma in Architectural Technology to further his career in the architectural & building industry.

Thomas enjoys 3D CAD modelling using Revit software. He is highly skilled at resolving three dimensional design problems for both presentation and construction documentation purposes. Not only does this assist our clients to take informed decisions at concept design stage, but it also ensures proper design resolution in the later stages of a project.
