Prioritising sustainability and innovation Award-winning company Weir Architecture is at the forefront of innovative, sustainable and bespoke design. “Each client receives a design individually tailored to their unique requirements and wishes,” says director, Robert Weir. “Every site is also carefully assessed to ensure the best position for outdoor areas and maximise North West aspects, capturing optimum sun and the best views.”


pecialising in hill home design, the company works alongside tradespeople and interior designers to provide a complete package. The ability to listen carefully to what the client wants is a key point of difference, Robert says. “Working closely with our clients to fully understand their requirements is crucial. It’s also about examining how they live in the house, functionality and flow. Texture,

colour and materials are important and we involve a landscape architect in our projects at an early stage to ensure the outdoor areas are also perfectly interconnected with the home.” As founding members of the NZ Green Building Council, the company has a strong belief in sustainability. “We are mindful of minimising environmental impact and ensuring thermally efficient

design, to keep power and energy usage to a bare minimum, while providing warmth and comfort for the homeowner.” Robert has over 30 years of experience in architectural design. His own home, built of textured pre-cast concrete, also won the company a prestigious national award for best home (over 300 square metres category). From designing contemporary architectural homes, to extensive commercial developments, Weir Architecture provides a user-friendly, solution-based service and upholds a strong reputation for excellence.
