Bill Henderson Architect Limited is a highly creative and imaginative architectural company committed to the design of buildings, spaces and places which are as striking and innovative as they are socially, economically and environmentally responsible.

Each project is the result of a meticulous, in-depth design process, regardless of its context, size or scope. We approach every job as a unique challenge and an exciting opportunity to develop the most dynamic and efficient buildings. The process starts with listening to our clients, understanding their needs and aspirations and then producing design-led solutions which are uniquely tailored to their context and the needs of the end user.

We translate our designs into reality by drawing on an exceptional network of knowledge and experience that embraces every aspect of a building’s design, construction and performance.

We believe that architects have an urgent duty to mitigate the effects of climate change, and to raise performance levels and lower cost of ownership, by designing buildings which work harder and perform better. We also believe that environmental awareness should not be viewed as a limitation of architectural potential, but as a generator of exciting and innovative built form.

We are a customer friendly company and you can email at:billhenderson@xtra.co.nz and talk to us about how we can help you.
