HMOA is an NZIA award-winning practice with studios in Wellington, Christchurch, Auckland and Tauranga. Established in 1997, our rich portfolio of commercial and residential work is a commitment to creating beautifully-crafted architecture that enhances the lives of those who experience our buildings.
We believe enduring architecture is a delicate balance of factors—our clients’ needs and aspirations, our professional training and expertise, the history and nature of the site—but also intuition and common sense. Every design decision matters and adds to the experiential qualities of our projects.
HMOA is experienced in apartments and multi-unit developments, commercial interiors, heritage, civil projects and master planning. Our Residential Process explains the stages of working with us on a new house.
