TRANSFORMING VISION INTO

DESIGN

INTRO

Matrix is a Christchurch based architectural design practice. We believe a building’s main purpose is to be useful to those that inhabit it; we aim to enhance connections. We provide architectural design services for residential and commercial clients. Let us help you transform your vision into reality.

GETTING STARTED

Getting Started

WORKING DRAWINGS

We believe great design comes from a great brief which is why we work hard in the concept phase to best understand your needs and aesthetic. We use a number of tools and methods including Pinterest for idea boards, 3D modelling and tools that help you envisage the finished product.

Creating a structure that suits your site, covenants or other council regulations, is something we’ve got covered. We offer a full service to help you during the information gathering phase, to ensure you get the best results from your design.
This might include:

  • Sun and wind studies;
  • Understanding the building envelope;
  • Site services and restrictions;
  • Boundary setbacks and easements;
  • Site location and topography and more.

Stuck on where to start? We can help you with sample floor plans and ideas to get you started.

Once we have a concept, we can begin to develop the design and pull together working drawings for building consent, tenders and building. We work with engineers and suppliers to compile a single set of drawings.Our construction drawings are of the highest quality and as licenced building practioners, the drawings comply with all NZBC requirements and the council regulations relevant to your area.We manage all consent processes on your behalf too, ensuring the most effective and timely outcome we can.

ABOUT US

Created in 2013, Matrix is a dedicated architectural design practice, based in Christchurch New Zealand.

GOOD BUILDINGS

We believe a building’s main purpose is to be useful to those that inhabit it. That’s why we never start with a standard design. That would be assuming too much. Only you know what is best for you.

WE DESIGN YOUR VISION

Our designers work with you to transform your vision for how you want to live, into quality design. We pay attention to aesthetic beauty as well as the practicalities of space, light, site, budget and timeframes. We work directly with clients and builders and offer a full range of services.

SENIOR DESIGNER

Matrix lead designer, Erin Knappstein, has spent the past 10 years, developing plans for residential property owners. Erin prefers a modern, timeless approach to architectural design and continues to be inspired by the evolving face of Christchurch. For Erin, good design starts with listening to the client and getting a feel for how they want to live now and into the future.
In her spare time Erin can be found getting out and about playing sport; netball and tennis being her favourites.
