What we do

Deverson Architects carry out the full range of architectural services for projects of any size. Whether you want a new dream house, a complete renovation, or simply want to change your garage into a sleep-out or convert your loft, we’ll help you get the most out of your project.

There is never just one solution to great design. Every project starts with what you are hoping to achieve, and we’ll explore that with you, from initial conversations about your brief to a final design that responds to all of your needs.

Louis Deverson will meet with you at your convenience to talk through your ideas for your individual project and what you hope to accomplish.

Why an Architect?

Architects add value. We have the creativity to see the possibilities and design opportunities within constraints. We can help you get the most out of your project.

Architects are bound by a professional code of ethics, and are accountable to the New Zealand Registered Architects Board (NZRAB). We are required to undertake regular professional development activities to maintain our experience and expertise.

Architects are automatically categorised as Licensed Building Practitioners for design work.

We are Mosgiel’s only NZIA Registered practice. You can rest assured we will provide a professional and diligent service.

What to expect from your Architect

We’ll prepare an Agreement for Services in line with Te Kāhui Whaihanga New Zealand Institute of Architects (NZIA) guidance, tailored to your specific requirements, so you know exactly what to expect.
