Residential Architecture

We’re bridging the gap between ordinary people and extraordinary spaces

When people think of architects and architectural services, they might imagine something out of Grand Designs – missed deadlines, stretched budgets, and Kevin McCloud scratching his head at a house made of grass. 

Aside from television shows, architectural services are often regarded as an exclusive option, reserved only for those with six or seven-figure salaries. 

But at Gisler Architects, we’re breaking the mould of traditional residential architecture to bring New Zealanders the most accessible, supportive, and innovative architectural design services. We’re passionate about bringing world class expertise to your project, without breaking the bank or compromising on quality.

We’re busting the myths around the accessibility of residential architectural services. With Gisler Architects, a beautiful and unique home can be built within your budget.

Our role in the residential sector

Don’t settle for a cookie-cutter home that looks exactly the same as your neighbours! 

Gisler Architects will work alongside you to design your dream home, create a thorough house plan,  take care of resource consent, and gather the right experts to get the job done. With decades of expertise in residential design and construction, we can tailor our knowledge to bring your vision to life. 

We’re the team to make it happen, whether you’re seeking:

  • Sustainable living with ethical materials
  • Passive house design to conserve energy and optimise natural light
  • Tiny house design and construction
  • Traditional Victorian structure with modern features
  • Innovation and future-proof design
  • Floor plan design
  • Or any other inspiration requiring specialised architectural solutions

We don’t just draw up the plans and leave you to it – our unique process covers all aspects of designing a house plan, resource consent and construction.

We work with inspired homeowners who are eager to make their innovative concept a reality, but are daunted by the challenges of building their own home. 

Every new design is born from a conversation around what you want, and how we can make it work. Our process is efficient and inclusive, and will take your dream house from idea to reality. 

After completing your design, from resource consent to engaging the right contractors and managing tight budgets, Gisler Architects is there as a project manager to back you up and speak your language. 

We’ll handle the tricky procedures, like liaising with council and handling construction contracts, working on your behalf to ensure all works are completed to the highest standard and in accordance with your unique preferences. 

With an industry expert advocating for your needs, you’ll soon be living in your own architectural masterpiece.
