It’s never a question of what to design,
but why.

We create places that people want to be in and around - buildings and their surroundings that meet the long-term needs of people through the consideration of sustainability, community, and culture. 

Moller Architects is one of New Zealand's most respected architectural firms. In practice for more than 50 years, winners of over 60 architecture design awards, and with projects across four continents. The studio has nurtured some of New Zealand's finest architectural talent and created a legacy of much loved buildings. 

Design isn't a fixed process. People are different and solutions are personal. Design is a social vocation. Great ideas don't appear in a vacuum; creativity is a collaborative process.  We see the boundaries of architecture, who we are, and how we work with each other, as dynamic. 

Our process is collaborative and cross-disciplinary, which allows for fluidity, flexibility and opens up limitless opportunities for creative thinking.

Email

Gordon Moller’s career as a creative designer started with a series of small houses, where he explored what has become a life-long interest in the roots of New Zealand architecture. Modest in programme, these works reflected a sense of form and material that links them to colonial prototypes.
The first of these to attract notice was his own house at Birkdale, designed in 1964, while he was still a student. Shortly afterwards, a second house, designed for his own family at Pinehaven in 1969, was recognised by his colleagues with the award of a Bronze Medal in 1970, followed by a Silver Medal in 1971.
