We love architecture.

About Bespoke Architecture.

We love creating extraordinary big-budget buildings, and gain just as much professional satisfaction in meeting the challenge of a small budget with creative solutions to build a home that is exactly right for you, with no wasted space or unnecessary detail.

The difference between average design and great architecture is in the quality of the thinking, and true understanding of your needs and wants. An excellent relationship is sure to lead to better architecture. So we put energy into that, too.

The extra hours we invest in thinking through options and solutions are rarely billed but they allow us to consistently produce work we’re proud of. And there’s a lot of it. We park our ego at the door every morning and our sole goal is to get it right for you. But we are quietly chuffed that our work consistently and repeatedly wins national awards.

What others have to say.

We built our home in Queenstown and used Bespoke Architecture to draw our dreams into reality. We were impressed right from the beginning when they came to our section and we discussed what we would like and they then turned it into our perfect house.
We found Vincent and Dan both to be very engaging throughout the entire process and super helpful with any questions we had – and we had a lot! They stayed hands on throughout the build process and we are super grateful to them for all their insights and assistance. Thanks Bespoke, if we ever build again we would definitely use you, although you’ve designed us our dream home so I doubt we’ll ever leave.

Bespoke obviously take customer service very seriously because we’ve never needed to follow them up – it was always the other way round. Communication was exemplary and we really appreciated them putting our wants and needs at the forefront.
Attention to detail was also very good. We’ve found zero wasted space in our house. They scrutinized and revisited every space, asking us how we liked to live and where the high value areas were so we knew where to compromise less. By far the favourite part of the process was the interaction with switched on designers.
We got everything we dreamed of, and more. Would we use Bespoke again? You bet!

In 2014 after some deliberation due to personal circumstances, I decided to build a new home on a section I purchased in South Shore Christchurch.
From day one I found the Director, Vincent Sanders and his team very professional, courteous and receptive of my ideas, which when finalized were everything and more than I had initially envisaged.
Throughout the building process, Vincent kept in regular contact, visiting my site often, giving me added encouragement and support, nothing was a bother. I now reside in an amazing home, and thank Bespoke Architecture and in particular Vincent, for everything they did for me throughout the exercise. Many thanks to Vincent and his team.

As a construction company, we have been using Bespoke Architecture for a number of years now on multiple projects and no job was too complex for them and we have always found their professionalism and attention to detail a key part of their service. 
They are excellent at communication and prompt with their replies. 
We have found that they are always open to listening to our ideas and giving us, and our client’s, great advice due to their vast experience and no job is too complex for them. We highly recommend Bespoke Architecture for your next architectural project!

After spending a lot of fun family times in the Hanmer Springs area we decided to build ourselves a modern and architectural family home.
Bespoke Architecture was our final choice. They made suggestions and gave us ideas that we could consider to incorporate in the design and time to think about this would work for us and what we were wanting.
They would follow us up constantly to see how we were going and helped us to the next stage of the planning and how we could improve the design. In this process they guided us to the home of our dreams. Their eye for detail on the exterior set this home apart from all the others.

Vincent Sanders was recommended to us through a friend who had used his company Bespoke and had been very impressed with them. My wife & myself have been in the construction industry our entire working careers. My wife Debbie had been an architect designer for 30+ years and retired.
Our brief was a Duplex with a list of what we wanted being a lock and leave townhouses. The site was tight with our requirements plus we knew it wouldn’t comply with some council rules. Vincent and team fulfilled our brief extremely well and added some great exterior features that we wouldn’t have thought of. These features have been very well praised by people.
Vincent working alongside a town planner we used overcame all the Council non-complying issues which wasn’t straight forward. We would have no hesitation in recommending Vincent’s company.
