“Big enough to deliver success across scales, yet small enough to be friendly and collaborative.” This is the mantra for Wellington-based architecture and interior design firm Ministry of Architecture and Interiors.
Although it has undergone a few name changes, the firm’s foundation date back to the 1890s, making it one of New Zealand’s oldest operational architecture firms. The modern day practice focuses on building upon this reputation, creating innovative and inspiring projects, while still honouring the firm’s rich history and portfolio of work.
They believe it is this unmatched experience that enables them to tackle nearly any brief along with the architectural spectrum both nationally and internationally. Ranging from master planning and urban design to residential architecture and interiors, their diverse depth of knowledge allows them to cater to a wide range of needs.
This experience has enabled the firm to take on a variety of highly anticipated and complicated projects, such as affordable housing development Pacific Gardens in Manukau CBD, which over 3000 Aucklanders will call home upon its completion.
