Tall Buildings

Tall buildings are arguably the ultimate test of architectural creativity and technical expertise, and we are proud to have delivered many of New Zealand’s most exceptional towers and office complexes.

The challenges of scale and complexity are something we enthusiastically embrace, pushing us to develop clear, innovative and industry-leading design and engineering solutions.

Sustainability & Adaptive Reuse

Carbon and sustainability are the challenges of our time. The most sustainable building is the one that endures, which our portfolio of loved, enduring buildings proves.

The thorough resolution of complex buildings using low carbon technologies and sustainability regimes are challenges we naturally welcome. We help our clients navigate these complex pathways. Coupled with adaptive reuse and heritage, and the pathway to a sustainable future becomes clearer.

The places where people come together are vital for our collective sense of belonging and enjoyment. This is architecture at its most human level. To be successful, the design must work for all. We approach these landmark assignments with openness and understanding, creating architecture that engages, inspires and endures.

The specific nature of Sports and Leisure facilities place enormous demands on architects and we thrive on these technical challenges. Our innovative ethos, tempered by deep research and experience, delivers cutting-edge facilities that are both functional and beautiful.


We have created many of New Zealand’s most iconic towers and office complexes and are acknowledged leaders in large buildings. Our experience gives us a deep and unique understanding of both client needs and the architectural challenges involved.

Our intensive Design by Research process explores opportunities for innovation and the integration of best-practice sustainability features. Along with genuinely innovative design, we have particular strengths in detailing, project leadership and cost control.


Homes must be insightfully designed and then lovingly made. We apply the utmost care to the feel, function and detail of living spaces – whether it’s a private house or a large, landmark apartment building. We begin every project by listening closely and understanding fully our clients’ unique needs and expectations, and we remain attentive and responsive throughout the design and build process.


We understand the drivers of hotel projects. We know what matters to key stakeholders, whether owners, developers or operators. And we can be relied on to deliver excellence across a full suite of services, from Master Planning to furniture and fittings. Peddlethorp’s hospitality portfolio includes some of New Zealand’s most successful and prestigious properties.


Healthcare is a uniquely complex area, and perhaps the ultimate expression of human-centred architecture. A well-considered design approach can reduce stress, promote calm and ensure patients and clinicians have a more comfortable experience. Our healthcare team has designed and completed both large and specialised healthcare projects, applying technical expertise and a healthy dose of empathy.


Great design shapes the experience of an interior space and stimulates with scale, texture, colour and detail. We have a complete offering of interior services, from pre-design through to installation. Our designers create and realise outstanding interiors across every architectural genre.


The future demands big, bold, sustainable ideas. We are committed to designing buildings that meet immediate needs and solve future problems. Sometimes this means designing for projects that don’t yet exist, so we can demonstrate how superb the solution could be.

Senior Living & Aged Care

Peddlethorp is a leader in aged care and retirement living, creating transformational facilities that provide high-quality living environments and exceptional standards of care.

Our portfolio includes large-scale developments catering for the full ‘continuum of care’ – including dementia care facilities – through to luxury independent-living villas and apartments.

Our research-based design process explores new opportunities for innovation, and ensures integration of best practice and sustainability elements.
