Brian Sharp JP
ANZIA, B.Arch, NZCD (arch)
Registered Architect. No 1879

I have over 37 years experience in the building industry and I am a qualified and registered architect as well as being a qualified architectural draughtsman. Under the Building Act Licensing scheme I am able to carry out design of all classes of buildings.

My experience extends over many building types, materials and the RMA. I enjoy hands on building and have personally built two houses as well as renovated several others for my family. My current project is the construction of an aircraft.


As a sole practitioner I provide a service where communication, control and responsibility are personal.

Projects are undertaken throughout New Zealand and if you have one further afield talk to me. The practice offers services from simply drafting of plans to a comprehensive architectural service including design, contract documentation and contract administration. No project is too large as I have a pool of consultants to assist where needed.

My Design Philosophy

Every project is for the client. Every client is different. Your needs and aspirations are critical to the success of your project. It is for you that I design. Each site has characteristics that must be considered. Good design uses the natural elements to provide a comfortable environment that is invigorating to live or work in.


Take a look at just a few of the projects I have undertaken to see that they varied both in scale, character and building type.
