Simply Architecture is an architecture firm working in Hamilton and the Waikato region, specialising in smart architectural design. We have had 20 years experience facilitating ideas from owners and providing a solution that has been enjoyed by our clients. Current trends in Europe, and research on energy efficient systems is an on-going interest. Architecture evolves and knowledge allows innovative and imaginative design.

The fundamental element of each project that Simply Architecture undertakes is energy efficient home design including the use of passive solar energy combined with sustainable heating systems and a high thermally rated exterior envelope. Clients are more often asking for passive solar design features. Site considerations are the north aspect, the view, neighbouring features. The flow of spaces and uses of these spaces within the home to enhance the daily life of the family or individual, within the confines of the site. This is our challenge and reward.

We use principles to provide a design that is adaptable and accessible for each client. Designs aim to be:

Usable: has thoughtful design features that meet different needs and abilities and make life easier such as reachable power points and easy to use taps.
Adaptable: has easy to adapt design features to meet changing needs without expensive additions or renovations such as suitable kitchens and bathrooms.
Accessible: has easy and safe access for people of all ages and abilities such as level entries and wider doorways.
