Founded in NZ in 1968, Peddle Thorp has built a brand that is easily one of the most respected architectural practices in New Zealand.
The cornerstone of the company is built on the notion that the craft of drawing forms the built result. The firm’s core strength is in the quality and depth of design detailing, which allows the most complex and creative ideas to be articulated into a living reality.
Peddle Thorp’s ability to deliver on a project of any scale or shape is a strength sought after by clients and industry professionals alike. We take projects from brief to completion, combining value and flair in effective design solutions for clients. At the same time, we embrace the opportunity to collaborate with other industry professionals, drawing on unique skills and talents for the benefit of the project. Other practices acknowledge and seek out our industry leadership in this space.
As a company, we have a down-to-earth, honest and practical approach combined with a unique ability to listen, distill, consider and communicate ideas in a simple, plain and articulate manner. Our strong heritage has provided a pride and assurance in our people, our brand and our craft. Grounded in old-world values of honesty and integrity, each new brief is tackled with enthusiasm, robust discussion and a complete sense of team.
Although proudly independent, Peddle Thorp recognise and contribute to the wealth of knowledge, resource and expertise that is the wider Peddle Thorp Group. We are proud to be part of a group whose projects and offices extend across NZ and Australia, Asia and the Middle East, and value the impartial counsel that comes from this unique relationship.
With a comprehensive and award-winning body of work that spans all major market sectors, Peddle Thorp creates spaces with distinct style and a remarkable clarity of vision that can be enjoyed by both current and future generations of New Zealanders.
