About Us

Create What You've Imagined Using Design Principles & Best Practice For Your Build.

At Shore Architectural we have the skills and experience to undertake a wide range of design and building projects. Our slogan “Concept to Completion” means we can act as a single point of contact, a one-stop shop, for our clients no matter how big their project.

Our passion for architecture comes from designs that are:

  • Aesthetically pleasing
  • Fit harmoniously within the surrounding environment
  • Function to match how you live your life

To achieve this trio, design innovation is required. From extending a heritage home while retaining its original aesthetic value, to creating a ‘new look’ architectural masterpiece, we achieve this for you. Once you are ready to build, we manage the construction right up to when we hand over the keys, and the certificate of compliance. We are your single point of contact throughout the entire design and building process making the whole project simple for you.

The key to all of this is customer service and communication. Once the exciting stage of the concept is over, there will be regular progress updates, which provide opportunities for further questions and comments throughout the remainder of the project.

Maurice Buckley, Director, is a Licensed Building Practitioner (LBP) and oversees all design and documentation produced in the office. He is also licensed as a builder and site manager. We believe in ongoing education as the only way to keep up with the innovation and change happening in the industry. All our staff are encouraged to attend relevant seminars and short courses as they come up. As an extra comfort, we carry Professional Indemnity Insurance. By working closely with our clients we can achieve just what the imagination creates. We relish the challenge to create the design you’ve always wanted. By incorporating our design principles, and ensuring best design practice throughout your project, your house will stand the best and worst of New Zealand’s conditions. What drives us to do this is our innate responsibility for improving New Zealand’s built environment.
