Foundation Architects, Wellington, is a design based studio working in Te Aro Wellington with a strong client and site specific approach. We undertake a wide range of residential and commercial projects that are in each case grounded in the key constraints of their individual context.

We believe the value of having a diverse portfolio of work is that it brings a wide perspective of experience and an open mind to each specific project, so if you are looking to undertake a project contact us to arrange a relaxed and informal discussion of your project requirements.

Contact us here, and check us out on Facebook.
