Koia Architects was established in Auckland, New Zealand in 1995 by architect, Tony Koia. The practice has expanded over the years and a second office was established in Queenstown in 2004. To reflect this commitment Koia Architects Auckland Ltd and Koia Architects Queenstown Ltd were created in 2006 to provide better service to both regions.
Currently we have seven people employed in our team - including architects, graduate architects, draughts-people and an interior designer. The company actively promotes continuing professional development for all of the staff, understanding the value of maintaining an informed and professional team to service our clients.
Initial projects included all types of residential and apartment fit-outs including their integrated interiors, and landscaping design. This quickly expanded to include townhouses, terrace houses, apartment buildings, office fit-outs and hotel design.
As part of the maturing New Zealand residential market over the last decade, we have enjoyed providing creative solutions for different types of living environments and seeing our clients appreciate the benefits of these.
Working in a wide range of residential and commercial projects keeps us fresh and always provides aspects that enrich our other projects – regardless of the size or type.
Each commission is special and unique. Every client brings a different hierarchy of requirements and we identify these at the outset - whether they be aesthetic, quality, time or budget constraints - so a successful outcome is achieved. We encourage our clients to be involved throughout the design process as this often brings about a more fulfilling result.
