ABOUT

Performance Architecture is a team of architectural designers with over 50 years of combined experience. Our Christchurch & Auckland architectural studios share a passion for improving the built environment and reducing the impact on New Zealand, both during construction and during the buildings use.

EXPERTISE

RESIDENTIAL

We provide a full range of residential architecture services, ranging from alterations and additions, to new builds, multi-unit housing, Passive House design, Low Energy Passive House, and high-performance houses. We also offer feasibility studies, master planning, subdivision planning, retrofits, EnerPHit, interior design - kitchen/laundry/wardrobe/bathroom design, material and colour selection, fixture and fitting specification, and more.

COMMERCIAL / INDUSTRIAL

We specialise in a range of commercial and industrial project types, including offices, warehouses, fit-outs and interior design, retail and hospitality spaces. We can work with you through the site feasibility and bulk & location planning stages, to procurement and construction, to completion.

ENVIRONMENT

We aim to design new buildings that not only meet functional and aesthetic requirements but also operate as efficiently as possible, while leaving a neutral or even positive impact on the planet. We understand the importance of considering carbon throughout a building's life cycle, material selection and ongoing operation. We utilise the latest technology & modelling software - Passive House Planning Package (PHPP) and Energy and Carbon Calculator for Homes (ECCHo) Homestar Design tool -  to analyse built-form performance and inform decisions throughout the design process. We're also able to use these tools (PHPP EnerPHit) to assess existing buildings and present retrofit options with performance and energy demand data.

FORMANCE

We're proud to be architectural design partners with Formance - Christchurch based manufacturers of Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs.)

SIPs are an alternative to timber framing which makes it easy to achieve an air-tight building envelope and a continuous line of insulation.

The result is a home that is warmer, stronger, healthier and has lower running costs than an equivalent home built using traditional construction methods.
