{jb_quote} Stephan Meijer Architecture exceeded our expectations. Stephan listened carefully to our stated eco-design requirements, interpreted our sketches, heard and got excited about our desire to incorporate a curved internal mud-brick wall, and understood our wishful statements about ‘what we would really like if we had lots of money’… He then used this information - along with knowledge of our site’s challenges - to design our wonderful eco-home. His ability to understand and work with our aspirations, to use contemporary knowledge of sustainable building methods and materials, and with good awareness of build costs and practicality have resulted in a truly lovely home. It is a one-of-a-kind, maximising a fabulous site. Thanks Stephan.{/jb_quote} {jb_author}The Edwin family{/jb_author}
{jb_quote}That my simple, yet sophisticated home fits so perfectly in a scenic but challenging landscape is entirely due to Stephan’s skill, imagination and daring. He has more than exceeded the confidence I put in him to provide me with a home carefully finished in every detail, particularly in relation to the environment..{/jb_quote} {jb_author}Liz Mahoney{/jb_author}
{jb_quote}In 2010 due to changes in our business holdings and operational commitments we decided we wanted to spend more time at our long-term owned beach house in Kaiteriteri and redevelop and modernise it in to a residence which we would be comfortable to live in for four -months plus per year. This project was to fully redevelop the site from front boundary to beach boundary stripping and building within and around the existing structure. Having a building and developing background we were able to detail and communicate what we wanted in the redevelopment in the way of space, finishes and style but need someone to take this information and develop the concept. To this end we wanted to use an Architectural practise that was local and had a working relationship and knowledge of the local Council. As you do in a small township we asked around and after having Stephan name mentioned a couple of time we meet with Stephan and soon after engaged Stephan Meijer Architecture Limited for the project. Stephan Meijer Architecture engagement was to take our brief and:
  1. Develop preliminary design.

  2. Obtain sign off.

  3. Develop documentation for Resource Consent.

  4. Manage Resource Consent application.

  5. Develop documentation for Building Consent.

  6. Manage Building Consent application.

  7. Additional technical assistance and detailing as required.

  8. Site visits and review as required. 

We were happy with the work completed by Stephan and found that he would listen and follow instruction on what you wanted but at the same time would infuse his own flair and design thoughts and not be afraid to push a point or concern if he didn’t agree with you which is refreshing. We are delighted with our finished product and would be happy to talk to anybody that are considering using Stephan Meijer Architecture Limited for their project..{/jb_quote} {jb_author}Grant Maycroft{/jb_author}

{jb_quote}Maree and I started working with Stephan about two years ago . We chose him because he was the only architect we could find in Nelson who had examples of the modern style of home we wanted to build on a difficult sloping section at Walters bluff.We have found him expert but understanding of what we were trying to achieve and practical when it comes to dealing with the issues since the Christchurch EQ on far higher engineering requirements. He has been prepared to listen carefully and provide options to us. We are about 25% into the build now and going through the most difficult earthworks and foundation stages.We have confidence in Stephan as our architect and can see the good working relationship he has with Mike Callister our builder ..{/jb_quote} {jb_author}Craig Boyce, chairman of Smiths city group{/jb_author}

{jb_quote}We really didn’t think we had the budget for an architecturally designed house. After researching all possible options for our first house, the choice to go with Stephan was obvious, and we are so pleased we made the right decision. Working with Stephan gave us a house that we are extremely proud of- and fit within our tight price range. We were able to incorporate all features that wanted into our house- and with Stephan’s expertise we have a home that is both practical and original.  The whole design process with Stephan was very easy and enjoyable! He was very good at listening to our thoughts on the design and we appreciated his ideas, knowledge and experience. 

We absolutely love our place, and visitors often remark on the simple yet unique design.  Thank you so much Stephan.{/jb_quote} {jb_author}Emma Ryder$ Jacob Lucas{/jb_author}
