John and I are both really pleased with the house and the whole process has been a pleasure. Thank you for listening to what I had to say and your time in working through all the details with me. I hope that you are as proud of the house as we are and we thank you for what we have created.
Having our property designed by Tony was a really wonderful experience – we were most impressed. He’s a pleasure to work with and is great at making sure he’s always available. And the house functions incredibly well. As a holiday home for two families, it’s exactly what we wanted.
"The design and build process was enjoyable and smooth from start to finish. Since we were rarely on site during construction, we relied entirely on Tony Koia and David Happs and were thrilled with the result. The level of communication was great. From designing the home to helping choose a builder to assisting with the choice of interior and exterior finishes, they did a fantastic job, and I would choose them again in a heartbeat."
'We had a very extensive and clear brief, but Tony was able to take that vision to a whole new level – beyond anything we could envisage. From the outset it was apparent that our thinking and sense of aesthetics were similar, and we found Tony to be very collaborative and extremely helpful. We were overseeing the renovation from abroad and Tony kept us well apprised of everything that was going on'.
Our rationale for choosing him (Tony Koia) as one of the best architects in Auckland can be summed up in one word: “cohesion.” Koia and his team make sure that all the elements of a house, from the walls down “to the last screw head,” have a consistent motif. Also, having worked over 27 years in architecture allowed Koia to be knowledgeable of various techniques and styles that developed throughout time. We think Tony Koia is an architect you shouldn’t pass up.
