Watt Architects

Watt Architects

Our business is building dreams.

The practice was formed in 1976 and is based in Wellington, New Zealands capital city.

Since its inception our practice has been committed to an ecologically sensitive design approach in developing our clients dreams. This has resulted in numerous NZIA awards.

Projects include a broad range of building types and forms, from Commercial, Industrial, and Housing, to Murals, Sculpture and Furniture.


Design Process

Our office studio, previously an inner city street front, now enjoys captivating harbour views from its bush clad site in the eastbourne bays. Come here for a free introductory meeting to discuss your dreams and budget to determine if our services are acceptable. Our fees are based on the standard NZIA scale, either on a percentage, hourly or fixed fee, depending on the nature of work.

You will be involved throughout the design process from developing the project brief, discussing design proposals, through to building consent and site meetings during construction. Our goal is to provide you with a home or building that is inspirational and a joy to live or work in.
