Patterson Associates is New Zealand’s most internationally recognised architectural practice. Pattersons has clients and projects as far afield as India, Singapore, Australia, Germany and China.
The practice is based on a very simple idea; if a building naturally belongs, feels like it fits logically into a place, into an environment, a time and culture, then the people that inhabit the building will likely feel a sense of belonging there as well. This methodology connects theories of beauty, confidence, economy and comfort.
Over the last 20 years, it has become clear that climate change will pose serious challenges to society, and that architects will have a major role to play in our future. A single holistic strategy is a central component of every Patterson’s design and a vast history of integration of environmentally sustainable design (ESD) into their work has resulted in specialized in-house skills at Patterson’s and the development and implementation of sustainability into each project.
