Beautiful houses are formed upon more than just a slab of sturdy concrete. At the end of the day, a house is only as good as its design, which means that a successful concept is key to creating a successful Wellington house plan. So how is this vital design formed? What design process takes place between property owners and Wellington draughtsman as the house of your dream is rendered from your imagination? What value do your opinions hold in the planning process, and will your personal tastes and nit-picks be reflected in the final product? 

In this three-part series, we’ll discuss the design process in depth.



The terms

Wellington house design performs like a partnership between you and your draughtsman. Enter the relationship with the confident knowledge that, no matter how inexperienced you might be with the world of construction and architecture, your ideas and opinions are vital and appreciated in all stages of the design process. After all, your architect won’t be living in the home – you will! 

So, feel free to ‘pour your heart out’ to your Wellington architect. The more ideas you bring to the brief, the closer your Wellington house designer will come to creating a concept that matches your exact mental image. 

Our designers will respect your dreams, ideas and budget. In return, it’s up to you to respect our talented team of Wellington architects when things get a little more technical. We’re here to create your dream home, but we also want that home to be future-proof; of sound make and timelessly stylish design. 

Let’s work together on even terms in what is most possibly the most exciting phase of owning a home: the design. 


The requirements

Simply put, you will provide the brief for your dream Wellington home design, and our architects will, in turn, provide the design. There will be a lot of meetings, discussions and evolutions in the process of developing this design, but that’s all part of the fun! 


Our Involvement 

Our team of Wellington architects can be there with you every step of the way, from the initial brief delivery to the construction and completion of your home. 

We can help you: 

  • Acquire council approval for your house plans and construction 
  • Recommend and arrange the team of builders, plumbers, electricians and so on that will construct your home
  • Refine the design of your home, should any issues present themselves during construction (on-site problem-solving services).  


We can, of course, complete our Wellington drafting services after drawing the initial plans, but it pays to have an experienced architect nearby to ensure all parties are respecting and producing things according to your dream-plan.
