Learn more about what we do at SMC Design Studio and how we can help you with your next project. 

If you’re looking for a new multi-unit development, we have the experience, architectural and engineering knowledge and creativity to help you out.

Town Planning and Bulk Location

Knowing the limits of your site and, most importantly, if such limits can be challenged through the resource consent process, is a key to maximizing the efficiency of the land use and, ultimately, the financial success of the development.

Please come and talk to us about what you can and cannot do on your site of interest.

Normally, we would be able to provide you a no-obligation advice and a sketch scheme plan within 48 hours.

Consenting (Building, Resource)

Almost every multi-unit development requires resource consent.

SMC Design Studio provides in-house expertise to all aspects of the application - town planning, urban design principles, landscaping, noise attenuation analysis, access design and parking.

At the detailed design stage, our experienced team of architectural designers and engineers handles the entire building consent process with ease, including building services, access engineering, fire and acoustics design and detailed architectural and structural design.

We are truly a one-stop-shop for all your design needs.

3D Presentational Renders

When it is time to start advertising your beautiful units, we are here to help you with presentation renders of the highest 'photographic' quality.

Our customers love our work, and we guarantee you'll love it too!

Communication is everything.

Communication is a key to a smooth design and build process. Our customers give us their highest appreciation for our responsiveness to their demands and requests, be it a pre-purchase consultation, design process issues, consenting challenges or construction monitoring.
Never ever had we walked away from any problem, always facing it in a timely and professional manner and always finding a solution.
We try to respond to calls and emails even in most challenging circumstances.

We believe architecture is a continuous process of inquiry and innovation, grounded in the traditions of craft, and responsive to the opportunities of each project.

SMC Design Studio specialises in multi-unit residential, commercial and industrial projects that are both complex and demanding.
