Aonui Architecture

Aonui Architecture aspires to be a leader in the field of environmentally sustainable design (ESD) in New Zealand.

On a day to day basis ESD is an awareness and a commitment to act responsibly in design choices whilst recognising that there are often conflicting pressures of time, cost and quality.

The principles underpinning Aonui Architecture’s work include these fundamental objectives:

  • Minimise the energy needed to operate a building,
  • Maximise local and low technology solutions wherever possible,
  • Consider the life cycle impacts of building systems and
  • Produce healthy and comfortable spaces for building occupants.

  • New residential
  • Residential refurbishment
  • Urban design and community planning
  • Strategic planning
  • Transport terminals
  • Hospitality and tourism
  • Interior design and colour consultancy
  • Retail
