Architecture Design Showcase
By Herbst

Herbst Architects are producing some of New Zealand’s best modern homes, and now they have a string of awards to prove it. Lance and Nicola Herbst have a special gift in defining both style and elegance, the trick is they can do it without indulging every available modern convenience. Their work endeavours to have a positive and meaningful contribution to the environment, rather than just another self serving monument. At it’s core Herbst architecture believes in building a vision of what New Zealand is. Essentially amplifying the beautiful natural surroundings with highly crafted houses, stunning structures that are built out of everyday materials. This distinctive approach gives their work an overwhelming sense of belonging.

Lance Herbst describes this approach as not being about “deprivation, but about consciousness” designing spaces that help owners connect with their surroundings and enjoy the New Zealand way of life. He goes on to say that “being aware of how much water and electricity you’re using, and filling your day with rituals – like cutting the firewood and going out to catch fish for dinner” are all part of the New Zealand lifestyle - a well designed home can become central to enjoying this.

Take a moment and enjoy some of Herbst Architects best work.
