Provenance

Archimedia is a New Zealand architecture practice with NZRAB and green star accredited staff, offering design services in the disciplines of architecture, interiors and ecology. Delivering Architecture involves intervention in both natural eco-systems and the built environment – the context within which human beings live their lives.

Archimedia uses the word “ecology” to extend the concept of sustainability to urban design and master planning and integrates this holistic strategy into every project.

Archimedia prioritises client project requirements, functionality, operational efficiency, feasibility, and programme. Once these fundamentals are soundly established, Archimedia pursues a sculptural architecture expressive of individual or collective identity.

Identity

  • Archimedia practice architecture as “material identity” – a crafted expression of individual or collective “identity” – embodying a synthesis of people, place and time.
  • Archimedia investigates “identity” with each client and endows buildings with a perceptible meaning that expresses this “identity” – the philosophical parti for all Archimedia projects.
  • Archimedia respect all cultures and their protocols and the fundamental connectedness of all humanity.

Human Experience

  • Archimedia are ambitious for the betterment of both humankind and the environment.
  • Archimedia approach design with the intent that human beings register an “experience” of architecture which uplifts their daily existence.

Environment

  • Archimedia strive for “beauty”, the exceptional and the inspirational in each and every commission, irrespective of budget.
  • Archimedia believe in tectonics – a poetic configuration of land, space and structure.
  • Archimedia believe in positive intervention – sustainability that enhances eco-systems.

Process

  • Archimedia believe that the very best process and the very best technology are critical contributors in our quest for the exceptional.
  • Archimedia invests resourcesto create a betterdesign solution.

Collaboration

  • Archimedia believe in collaboration between equals and the power of teamwork.
  • Archimedia staff are consultative by nature and use processes that encourage user decision making wherever possible.
